Jessica Shortall is a thirty-something working mother of two, with a career dedicated to the intersection of business and doing good. For five years, she was the first Director of Giving for TOMS Shoes, a job that had her literally circumnavigating the globe with a breast pump.

Jessica started her adult life as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Uzbekistan, and has worked in the non-profit, start-up, corporate, and human rights worlds in the U.S. and internationally.

Before she had children, Jessica enjoyed travel, yoga, cooking, and wine. Today, her interests include just keeping it together, and also wine.

“Guilt is a response to what you think you’ve done wrong. Shame is feeling that who you are is wrong.”
Jessica Shortall, Work. Pump. Repeat.: The New Mom's Survival Guide to Breastfeeding and Going Back to Work

“If breastfeeding is causing you terrible anxiety, ruining your performance at work, hurting your relationship with your kids or your spouse—all of these are valid factors. You are more than the milk you make, and you are in charge of your body.”
Jessica Shortall, Work. Pump. Repeat.: The New Mom's Survival Guide to Breastfeeding and Going Back to Work

“Breastfeeding your baby is fleeting, and while it’s important to you, so is continuing to provide for your family and having a fulfilling work life.”
