How can my wife go back to work after raising children?

We had children in the last decade so my wife was a stay at home mom. In her mid 20's when she was working she was a project manager making $80,000 a year. She managed more than 50 engineers during her busiest schedules. She has a 4 year degree in Business Management with an emphasis on Telecommunications management (think networks and call centers). She doesn't want to get a job making $30,000 a year. She feels her intelligence, experience, and value all exceed an entry level worker's salary. The problem is she has a huge gap. We've bought and sold a few rental properties, managed tenants, repairs, collected rent. We are thinking about making up some back story about all this to justify that she spent a decade at home. This has us feeling uneasy. Any idea how she could make entry into the work force at a respectable (above $60,000/yr) salary?
