Esther Lombardi writes about women at work, productivity and time management strategies, and breaking news. She has more than 15 years of professional writing, editing, and publishing experience, as well as a master's degree in English. Esther is a full-time freelancer, who draws upon her background to give you fun and compelling stories. To her, the story and the vehicle(s) of expression are important, but sometimes it's just as essential to explore those areas just outside one's comfort zone. She loves to jump head-first into that deep ravine, and discover where her parachute will take her.
