Welcome to the life lessons of Jana Williams, the wife of a wonderful husband and mother of three awe-inspiring children who are the motivation for what you will read in my blog, Degrees of Maternity.
I’m a former Human Resources Professional with a proven record in the delivery of quality customer service and administrative support for over ten years in industries such as education, medical, and aircraft. My areas of expertise include call center customer support, information systems support, company policy administration, compensation, benefits administration, and virtual school instruction.
After receiving both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Business Administration and working for various companies and organizations for over fifteen years, I had the opportunity to homeschool my youngest child for two years. Once my son returned to public school, I decided to put together the knowledge I’ve gained as a workplace professional and mother and create Degrees of Maternity.
Through this blog, I have managed to combine two areas of focus that I am extremely passionate about (writing and my role as a mother). My ultimate goal is to provide beneficial hints, tips, suggestions, reflections, and product offerings related to education, family relationships, personal/professional development, and health and wellness…all from a mother’s perspective.
Furthermore, my family inspiration led me to the rewarding path of writing my first book, Playground Instruction for the Growing Adult. This book writing journey (chronicled in the “DOM Writer’s Block: A Writer’s Journey” section of my blog) started in February 2019, when I took off on The Road to Authorship. I trekked along that road until September 2019, when I self-published my first book. At that point, I started on a new road as a self-published author and I continue on this exhilarating journey toward pursuing my writing dreams to this very day.
