June 11, 2019
Tanya and Christiana
Today you get to hear our chat with Dr. Kulkarni (who could totally be your bestie from college) about about how she brought to reality her dream of creating a medical practice for women by women, her path to medicine, the never-ending quest for finding true happiness, how to navigate the shame, stigma and judgement that often get passed on some of the choices we make during different stages and more. Dr. Kulkarni also shares with us some of her tried and tested life hacks for creating the life of you've always dreamed of.
We think our conversation with her will leave you feeling empowered and comforted by the fact that you're not alone in the journey of aging and growing older (and all the "stuff" happening to our bodies in the process).
In this episode we talk to Dr. Kulkarni about:

How to balance the multiple hats we wear: career, parenting, pursuing passions, staying healthy and fit, etc.
