Working Daughter was founded by Liz O’Donnell in 2015.  A longtime marketing executive, she turned her attention to helping working daughters balance eldercare and career after caring for her two parents. 

Liz’s new book, Working Daughter: A Guide to Caring for Your Aging Parents While Earning A Living, will be available in August, 2019. A recognized expert on balancing life and career, she has written about the challenges of working daughters in numerous publications including The Atlantic, Forbes, TIME, USA Today, WBUR and PBS’ Next Avenue. Her first book, Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman, looked at the impact of women’s personal lives on their careers.
