Make way for an uplifting conversation that will leave you feeling invigorated and refreshed! Our guest today is Dr. Mona Vand, a Doctor of Pharmacy who is also an expert on wellness and clean beauty.
Growing up as a Persian-American came with a high set of expectations: become a doctor, engineer, or lawyer. Though that can often feel restrictive for many, Dr. Mona carved out a path for herself that ultimately led her to where she is now — educating people about health and wellness with a clinical perspective while making it all more accessible and relatable.
We chat about what it was like for her to grow up away from her dad and brother within a community where being Persian equated to not being white. We also delve into the idea of working for money and the importance of seeking your own path to happiness. Lastly, Dr. Mona gives her two cents on keeping the balance between subscribing to strict health rules and following your intuition.
