She is the founder of the MomShift an online and media campaign show-casing and sharing the stories of women from a variety of professional and personal backgrounds who all achieved greater career success after starting their families (and counter to the usual story we hear).
Its time to go beyond the focus on just women like Marissa Meyers or Sheryl Sandberg style and instead share working mom success stories that are more diverse, relateable and actually more helpful to more women looking to create their own post baby career success stories.
So far, I’ve spoken with over 500 of different women about their working Mom success stories.
What I learned about successfully navigating the working mom journey is the basis of my second book, “The MomShift: W0men Share Their Stories of Career Success After Having Children“(Random House : 2014).
Reva’s previous book, First Comes Marriage: Modern Relationship Advice From the Wisdom of Arranged Marriages (Simon & Schuster, June 2008), examined what the centuries-old tradition of arranged marriages could teach modern women about dating, love and relationship happiness. The book was based on over 300 interviews Reva conducted with women in arranged marriages across the US, Canada and Europe.
First Comes Marriage received both critical acclaim and global media coverage from such major outlets as 20/20, CBS Sunday Morning, Canada a.m., The Steven & Chris Show, The Daily Mail, The Atlantic, Redbook, Reader’s Digest, The Times (UK), The Times (India), The Globe and Mail (Canada) and The Christian Science Monitor.
