About this Event

It’s hard balancing the demands of family, kids and career. We all know that. Is it possible to make it all work? And better yet, is it possible to balance it all and be happy in the process?

In this “don’t miss” event, The Riveter is thrilled to host a panel discussion with four well-known and respected working TV moms who will open up and share candidly about how they try to make it all work, while juggling their high-demand careers.

Panel host Roxane Battle is a long-time Twin Cities TV journalist best known for her time as a news anchor and talk-show host on the Minneapolis NBC affiliate KARE-TV. Roxane is now a public speaker and award-winning author of the best-selling memoir Pockets of Joy, in which she offers an intimate look inside her life as a divorced single TV mom.

Joining Roxane is award-winning KARE-11 journalist Lindsey Seavert, mom of two children with extra challenges, and director and producer of the critically acclaimed documentary “Love Them First,” filmed here in the Twin Cities and now winning awards at multiple film festivals around the country.

Lea B. Olsen is a recent empty-nester, with both a son and daughter in college. Lea has worked to make it all work while reporting for ESPN and appearing on national TV as an analyst and sideline reporter for the Minnesota Lynx and Timberwolves.

You’ve seen Miss Shannan Paul on FOX9’s The Jason Show, and heard her voice on MyTalk101.7. You may have even caught one of her standing room only live comedy shows. Miss Shannan tours nationally as a comic, while balancing her mom duties and raising the “Cyclone Kid", her adorable 11-year-old autistic son.
