{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 38

GGB Episode 38: Ashley Lundquist

I’ve interviewed quite a few moms with young babies since starting this podcast, but Ashley Lundquist takes the cake for having THE youngest baby to date. She gave birth to her son Phoenix less than a month ago, yet still took time out to talk with me.

I loved getting the perspective of a brand-new mom, and Ashley was kind enough to share all the interesting details related to her journey so far. It reminded me just how unique of an experience it is having your first child, and how it felt so different for me the second time around.

Ashley talks about how losing her voice affected her music therapy career, the way she incorporated music during her labor and delivery, and how she is settling into her role as a first-time mom just a few weeks postpartum in Episode 38 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 37

GGB Episode 37: Megan Resig

I have to be honest with you: I can’t help but become a total fangirl when it comes to this week’s podcast guest. Megan Resig is one of my music therapy business owner heroes, and she’ll be yours too after you listen to her interview.

Megan was kind enough to share lots of insight when it comes to working with partners and managing a not-so-small business; both are topics in which I have a vested interest. I could have picked her brain for hours!

Megan talks about opening up a 6,000 square-foot facility with 12 employees while her daughter was just an infant, the role her husband played in helping make that possible, and how she’s setting an example for her daughter by doing work she loves in Episode 37 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 36

GGB Episode 36: Maggie MacArthur

I thought I had a lot going on during my pregnancy…until I interviewed this week’s podcast guest. Maggie MacArthur is an impressive lady, and quite the trooper for working 3 jobs (one of which was serving tables) while pregnant.

Luckily, Maggie’s professional life looks drastically different following the birth of her son Keegan, as you’ll hear in this episode.

Maggie talks about the many plates she was spinning during her pregnancy, her realization that she wasn’t meant to be a stay-at-home mom, and how her son’s orthopedic condition has helped her better relate to her clients’ families in Episode 36 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 35

GGB Episode 35: Catherine Hershey

Interviewing this week’s podcast guest was actually the second time in the same week that the two of us had an in-depth conversation. I first connected with Catherine Hershey a few days earlier when she interviewed me for her music therapy blog, and I enjoyed talking to her so much that I immediately invited her to be on the podcast.

Little did I know just how fascinating Catherine’s music therapy and motherhood journey has been so far. Wait until you hear about her whirlwind experience from the start of internship through the birth of her son.

Catherine talks about completing her internship in NYC while pregnant, how starting her blog was a turning point in her postpartum year, and the unique opportunity she has to design her ideal music therapy career in Episode 35 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.

{Guitars & Granola Bars} Episode 34

GGB Episode 34: Lesleigh Zundt

I’m so appreciative of the fact that every guest I’ve interviewed for the podcast has been willing to open up and share her (and his!) very personal stories. This week’s guest is no exception; Lesleigh Zundt and I had a conversation about the not-so-fun side of motherhood: baby blues and postpartum discussion.

But we also celebrated her triumphs, including keeping up a regular pumping schedule for an entire year, even when it meant doing so in her car on a regular basis. Working moms who pump are kind of my hero (and motivate me to keep it up!).

Lesleigh talks about pursuing her music therapy degree while raising a young daughter, overcoming baby blues after the birth of her son, and her adventures in pumping as a working mom in Episode 34 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast.
