How Horizon supported me through the birth of my first child…

Hi, my name is Jamie.

I have been at Horizon for almost two years and recently had my first child. His name is Clayton.

Nobody can fully explain to you what it’s like to transition back to work after maternity leave but it can be a little tougher than it sounds. A couple things that made mine a lot easier: 1. a super supportive team and 2. the new Spring program led by Louba and Eileen.

On my first day back, my team welcomed me by decorating my desk with a sign and flowers and coffee. On top of that, my bosses are extremely understanding and have so much great advice. They really pushed me to make sure I maximize my time with Clayton whenever possible because kids grow up in the blink of an eye.

I was also lucky enough to be one of the first moms to benefit from the new Spring program. I met a bunch of other Horizon moms and have found support through them as well. AND there are a ton of other benefits like a post-baby date night, massages, and one on one working mom counseling to help you adjust back.

I am definitely still learning to balance being a working mom but I am thankful to be able to learn it here.

Horizon Life means… supporting you through life’s changes.
