Episode 170: Emily Tisch Sussman – Pivoting in Career and Life

Emily Tisch Sussman is the creator and host of the award-winning podcast, She Pivots, a Tony-nominated producer, a Marie Claire contributor, a democratic political strategist, and mother of three. Emily is a seasoned host, having interviewed leaders and influential women including Vice President Kamala Harris, Secretary Hillary Clinton, Priyanka Chopra, and Sophia Bush, among others.

She has a passion for amplifying women’s voices and sharing stories of those that have successfully pivoted in their personal and professional lives, which is what she did after leaving her fast-paced job as the VP of Campaigns at the largest democratic think tank in Washington, D.C when she became a mother. This was a huge life shift for her. She talks about that transition in this episode and what it was like.

We also talk about how you can view motherhood differently than other people and it can still be a beautiful thing. Emily is also super active with her school board where her kids go to school. I loved getting to talk to another podcast host and hearing about all that she is passionate about. This was a fun one!
