I’m excited to be the new cover story writer for Our Town Gwinnett Magazine! I’m really looking forward to meeting some interesting and inspirational people around town. Here is a short excerpt of my first article published through Our Town:
The roles of a twenty-first century mother are endless – nurse, cook, maid, laundress, seamstress, CEO of Domestic Operations and, often, a job that actually offers a paycheck. Add to that a satisfying social life and a blissful romantic relationship, and it begins to feel like walking a tight-rope while carrying an assortment of china plates and saucers.
There is something within a woman that drives her to accomplish more than she ever thought possible. Whether it’s a lifelong dream, love for her children, or a drive to change the world, a catalyst always exists to push her further and further until she reaches her goal. Often, the strength of a woman lies in her ability to multitask and care deeply for those around her.
A shining example of this innate ability is Alisa Boykin, a Cayce, South Carolina transplant who made her way to Gwinnett County seven years ago with her family.
