Kim Schaefer sat down with momlogic to discuss her unique journey.
ML: Are you a mom yourself?
KS: I have a 15-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son. I'm a working mom who goes through the same struggles that other moms out there go through. My advice to working moms is that early on, I figured out I can't do everything. I have my family and I have my work and that's it. I don't have a lot more -- that's how I balance it.
KS: Yes! Having seen last season, I thought: I have been with the company 14 years, I know the jobs, and I'm going to be a superstar! I was in for a rude surprise.
ML: We heard you worked undercover at the Great Wolf daycare program (The Cub Club).
KS: It's much easier to wrangle a room full of executives than a room full of children! The kids knew I was new so they tortured me a bit.
ML: What were some things you learned along the way?
ML: Would you do this all again?
KS: Yes. I had a double opportunity to change and to grow. You always say you'd love to get a new perspective -- "Undercover Boss" is a big way to do it and a dramatic way to do it. I love to grow and to learn the what the company is all about. This was the highlight of my professional career.
