Bulls performance psychologist Wendy Borlabi serves as inspiration for working mothers
Bulls performance psychologist Wendy Borlabi vividly remembers her final meeting with president Michael Reinsdorf before being offered the position. It took place during the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto.
Before the meeting to discuss the Bulls’ first in-house sports psychologist position, a friend advised Borlabi not to disclose that she was a single mother, let alone the mother of twins under 4. Borlabi thought to herself, no. Not only had she prepared herself for this moment with all the degrees she had earned, but she also knew she couldn’t take a job that didn’t value who she was as a mother.
