Kerri Howell is a 40-something working mother from Upstate New York who works hard to balance work and family each and every day. As the director of communications and media relations for Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management, she is responsible for managing all internal and external communications with students, faculty, staff, alumni, members of the business community and other key stakeholders.
After receiving her B.A. from the State University of New York at Geneseo, she went on to earn an M.S. in communications management from Syracuse’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, where she has served as an adjunct professor in the public relations department since 2004.
Her “other job” is mother to three children – Maria, 10, Lucia, 7, and Christopher, 2. They keep her on her toes! She loves spending time with them, as well as her husband, a professional opera singer.
This blog is her ongoing commentary on her own life. She hopes to inspire other women who balance work and family as she does. Cheers!
