Finding a balance between hectic work schedules and raising four young kids (including twins) is a challenging task many parents face. Similar was the case for husband-and-wife team Shawn Ley and Sandra Ali. The couple, who celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary this year on 19 September 2018, worked at Detroit TV as a news anchor at WDIV Channel 4.

Sandra grew up with values/traditions in a home where she was surrounded by unconditional love and support. She says her mother was a source of inspiration for her when it came to choosing to be a working mom. Sandra always tried to figure out those things that worked, and that didn't work by trial and error method. She believes that it is essential to make your family time a priority when you’re all together. She is a scheduler and a planner and tends to plan everything out down to the hour, the minutes.
Now that she gave birth to twins on 24 January 2017, she has been busier than ever. Despite loving to be a mom that has changed her life in a good way, Sandra continually struggles with trying to accomplish much more than is reasonable and also working too much harder to be perfect which she already knows is not ever attainable.
