No two motherhood journeys are ever the same, even among those that are working moms. Our paths and ways of doing this mommy thing are uniquely are own, and that is worth celebrating. There are some incredibly talented and brilliant mamas in our city that gracefully wear the hats of both professional and mom. This series will highlight a handful of these women, as they open up on the delicate balance between their two worlds.
The next local lady in this series we bring to you is Priya Dhingra Klocek! We got with her for a virtual interview and are excited to share some of her story and perspective on motherhood and being the owner of her own business she created over a decade ago.
