Career Break Story: Leaving Attorney Life for a Family Roadtrip Around the US with Carmelita Tiu

Season #1 Episode #22

Carmelita Tiu (aka Millie or Cat), is passionate about doing good in the world and raising her kids to become good adults. She's a podcaster, creative, lawyer, educator, spouse, and mom to two daughters. After receiving her art degree and law degree, she worked as an attorney at The Oprah Winfrey Show and OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network for several years, then pivoted to the design and advertising world for almost a decade before hitting pause and taking a career break.

Though she's based in Chicago, she's currently looping around the U.S. with her family for the 2021-22 school year -- a bucket list dive into memory-making, hyperfocusing on the family, and pouring into passion projects. She's the producer and host of "Know Them, Be Them, Raise Them", a podcast to help mindful and growth-oriented moms of tween & teen girls stay informed and inspired. She's also roadschooling her daughters (with mixed results!) on this epic journey they're taking.
