Bonus: Sisters in Conversation with Sandi Reinardy and Barb Dvoracek
Sandi and Barb talk about their relationship, how they consider spending time with their sisters as self-care, and what they’re both working on in terms of self-development. They also talk about Sandi’s decision not to have children – the first time they really opened up about it. It’s a fun, heart-warming conversation, that is a tribute to sisters.
Sandi Reinardy, 41, is in the midst of making a career change from database consultant to social worker, with a focus on criminal justice efforts. She is also a writer and recently launched a blog called Grumble Wonder Grow, where she wrestles with the beautiful, messy challenges of being a human. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin with her husband.
Barb Dvoracek, 47, worked for 17 years at a global consumer products company in management and clinical research. She has bachelor’s degrees in psychology and human biology, and a master of science in microbiology. Barb also recently completed another master’s in social work in order to make a career change. She lives in Wisconsin and has been married to her husband Bill for 17 years. Barb has taken a year off work to spend more time with her four children, ranging in age from 10 - 24, and to help care for her parents.
I know that many of you don’t have sister or have a sister, but you aren’t close. Whether that’s you or if you, too, have a tight bond with your sister – I hope it leaves you inspired to have those important conversations that you need or want.
The sound quality is not the best in this episode, and I worked quite a bit to get it to where it is now. I hope that you can overlook it, because you won’t want to miss it.
As you heard in both of those episodes, Sandi reached out to me at the beginning of summer and proposed this series, which has been really wonderful. I am grateful to both Sandi and Barb for their voices and support!
