About Julie's Book:


"Reading Julie Burton’s The Self-Care Solution is like cozying up with an old friend for a long and much-needed talk. Julie combines personal narrative with practical advice that will help any mom better care for her body, mind and spirit. Julie’s warmth and wisdom shine from each page, encouraging and empowering all of us to carve out the time we need to be our best selves. This is the perfect gift for any new—or not so new—mother!"

—Kate Hopper, author of Ready for Air: A Journey Through Premature Motherhood and Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers



“Riveting from the first page, Burton shares her raw experiences, struggles, and helpful insights as she describes her own journey in The Self-Care Solution. Weaving together her experiences as a mother of four, stories of women she surveyed, and her insights as a professional journalist, Burton engages us in eight practical strategies for institutionalizing self-care in our lives. Anyone struggling with self-care knows that many, if not most, of the challenges are due to our own beliefs. Read The Self-Care Solution to liberate yourself and forge your own path toward sustainable self-care.”

—Michelle Segar, PhD, author of No Sweat: How the Simple Science of Motivation Can Bring You a Lifetime of Fitness

The MWL Professional Parents Affinity Group hosts luncheons and events, which provide a relaxed environment for MWL's working parents to meet with one another, network, and share their experiences, challenges and successes, as it relates to their families and their professional careers. Based on member input, upcoming gatherings will feature both focused discussions led by a speaker, as well as more casual opportunities to meet and network with one another. The group plans to meet on the 2nd Thursday of every other month at noon in the MWL offices. All members are welcome to join and get involved.
