According to her, balancing her career and family is all about planning and priorities.

"In all honesty, I think that with every role in life, it is about planning, she said. "It's about how you decide to balance based on what you consider most important, or on your scale of preference, what should come before what.

"I don't know that we ask the banker or the market woman, or the teacher or the doctor how she balances having a child and having to resume work three months later. I don't know that we ask them how they manage work and the home front."
