Sara Rontal Fisher

Contributor and blogger

Sara R. Fisher has hobbed-nobbed with professional athletes, survived the dot-com boom and bust, earned a masters degree from Medill and worked with CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. But the job she relishes most is that of being a mother to her two fabulous boys ages 4 and 7 months. When not at the park, picking up at pre-school, or playing with toy airplanes, Sara can be found blogging at www.selfmademom.net or freelance writing for various media outlets. Sara lives in her house full of XY chromosomes in the Roscoe Village neighborhood of Chicago. Follow her on twitter @selfmademom.
