DENVER -- Let's face it. It can be a challenge for moms to juggle between time at the office and time at home. Now, more and more moms are choosing to stay at home, and make some extra cash at the same time.

Alpine Access is one of the agencies in the Denver metro area that moms are going to for help.

"I think a lot of people are looking to escape that rat race," said Alpine Access CEO Chris Carrington. The agency helps find moms jobs where they can work right from the comfort of their own home. In fact, about 80 percent of Alpine's employees are women like Kathi Matherson.

"I don't want to deal with the commute, the stress. All the stresses that comes with leaving home to work, is not something I look forward to," said Matherson.

Matherson is a mom who homeschools her kids. She wanted to stay home and spend more time with her kids but needed the extra income. Now she works as a customer service agent for local airline company from her own bedroom. For Matherson, she said it's a peferct combination.

"Being a mother is my first priority," said Matherson.
