Following the release of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's new book, "Lean In" and, weeks after Yahoo CEO's Marissa Mayer's decision to ban telecommuting, CNN asked 10 women to describe when they realized they could-or could not-have it all. The women responded with how they find their own work-life balance and what they have to sacrifice to achieve that balance.
Two years ago, Baskerville moved to California to get married. Thanks to Qorvis' flexibility, Baskerville is able to live in San Diego and work from home. She travels to Washington once a month for client meetings.
Baskerville told CNN, "Thanks to a company that values their employees, the wonders of technology and an understanding husband, I have my all-my dream job, living in paradise with my amazing husband and a happy dog."
Baskerville has worked for Qorvis for more than nine years and specializes in media relations, media training and strategy.
