“Listening to your children is one of the best gifts you can give them.”
Amy Jett has been a nurse for 15 years and is a mother of four children. She loves hiking, going on short trips and attending sports events with her children. One of the most important aspects of her motherhood in her eyes is having deep conversations with her children, for she feels that talking and truly listening to your kids is one of the best gifts that you can give them.
How long have you worked for your current employer?
I have worked for Throneberry Family Clinic for about two months, after leaving my previous nursing job due to clinic closure.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I get up every morning to make lunches, take my daughter Madison to track practice early, and return home to get ready for work. I then also take Laken to school early for track practice and head off to work until 5 p.m. My parents help with pick up after school. Colton plays baseball, taking and going to and from practice twice a week. We try to do family dinner when we can, but with Mason working and all of our extracurricular activities, it is usually “grab and go.”
How do you manage your work/life balance?
Working 40 hours a week as a mother of four can be hard. I make sure to be fully available to my children before and after work, and my husband helps during the day when kids need things for school. We try to hike on the weekends and Cole is usually playing baseball and we attend as a family.
What is your favorite dish to make for family meals?
I love making spaghetti for my family; they enjoy it and it feeds a crowd.
Do you have any interesting or fun family traditions?
We are a newly blended family and traditions are in the works.
Who are some of the moms you look up to?
I look up to my mother and mother-in-law. They are always there to lend a hand and transport children when I am working. Family time around the dinner table is a must with them, always keeping the family connected during these busy times.
What advice would you give to new or soon-to-be moms?
Listening to your children is one of the best gifts you can give them.
