Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.

Hello, My name is Mary Kay Ziniewicz, and I am the founder of Bus Stop Mamas. I provide businesses fast access to experienced and affordable talent while engaging mamas in meaningful work that fits within the lifecycle of caring for their children.

Tell us about your favorite Ellevate Network memory or success story. Why are you a member?

I became an Ellevate member early this year and I am interested in connecting with other founders, business leaders and moms.

How would you define your professional mission?

Fitting motherhood into the business paradigm.

We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?

Standing at the bus stop with incredibly talented moms who left promising careers to care for their children—all waving to their kids as they boarded the bus.

When the bus enters the picture, life changes.

For me, I didn’t start standing at the bus stop until my daughter was nearly 10. My husband was the stay-at-home dad.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Helping families and businesses thrive.

What legacy do you hope to leave through your work?

Motherhood is not a career threatening event (any more:).

What would you say your personal superpower is?

The ability to "carry" a baby is pretty spectacular. All mamas have superpowers--doesn't matter how a mama carries!

What is the best career advice you ever received?

Just do it!

What is one piece of advice you’d offer working moms?

Don't be afraid to say you're a mom. And don't be afraid to say you love your baby more than your job. We all do. :)
