Vidhya is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area where she currently resides with her family of two children – a boy (8) and a girl (5) –  a marketing executive at a Fortune 500 technology company, and her shetland sheep dog, Leela (10).  While her work and life may not always be in perfect balance, she continues to run the marathon focusing on boundaries, priorities, and promising to always be present when it counts.

Vidhya holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of California – Los Angeles, and a master’s in business administration, with a focus on marketing, from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.  She’s financially competent and has passed all four parts of the California Uniform CPA exam.  Vidhya has experience across a wide variety of industries (consumer products, finance,  technology, and social media) and functions (finance, sales, marketing, corporate citizenship and strategic planning).  She currently works as a marketing executive at Automattic.  You can follow her on Instagram @vidhyapr or on Medium.

By creating Have Kids, Will Work, Vidhya wanted to continue the journey of answering these questions and find ways to help working parents everywhere better learn to cope, survive, and even thrive in their lives – while managing the unique day to day challenges.  Have Kids, Will Work is not about “How to get promoted” or “How to have it all”, but it is about finding ways to navigate your own unique situation, learning to work with what you have, and committing to happiness so you can thrive in this phase of your life.  It won’t last forever, so make sure you enjoy it.
