Sarah and I were thrilled that our longtime friend Rachana Shah agreed to come on Best of Both Worlds this week!
Rachana is a pediatric endocrinologist (like Sarah) and practices at a major children’s hospital. She was also the star of the Tranquility by Tuesday In Real Life video on Rule #6: One big adventure, one little adventure. During the pandemic, she and her family (husband and two tween/teen boys) began doing some serious camping. They also do the occasional weeknight adventures such as mini-golfing and the like.
In this episode she talks about lots of aspects of managing work and life: Deciding to stay in the city as her kids got older (she is a big fan of Abbott Elementary), managing a major renovation to their townhouse to accommodate their growing boys, how childcare works when your kids age out of camps and after care, fitting in exercise as a practicing physician, and so forth.
Please give the episode a listen! One of our missions with Best of Both Worlds is to present the stories of how “real women manage work and life.” We welcome suggestions, and if you feel you haven’t seen a particular profession or life situation presented, please let us know.
