Alice Leiter Freelance Writer Writing Washington, DC
About Alice
I am a former healthcare regulatory lawyer living in Washington, D.C. with my husband and four children: a 16-year-old step-son, 6-year-old son, 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son.

My career highlight to date is having been the editor-in-chief of the Stanford Daily newspaper; things have been largely downhill since then, as my eight years in a law firm were significantly less fun.

I took what I refer to as a "permanent maternity leave" after the birth of my youngest and embarked upon a year of professional soul-searching. The upshot? I've decided to rededicate myself to my first love: writing.

My hobbies include making fun of my family on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/alicebleiter/), watching Bravo, and wondering if people are mad at me.

If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I think my greatest talent is my ability to be a good friend, and along with that goes what I hope is a witty sense of humor. I love making people laugh, and I take great joy in not taking myself or the role of "mother" too seriously. I can find humor in the darkest of corners, which hopefully brings light to others.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Exposure

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Launching a freelance career, especially with young children, is daunting in many ways, and I'm eager for support, mentorship and community. Heymama offers an abundance of each, and it is a true privilege to join such an incredible group of accomplished women.
