Southern Marin Dermatology MD, co-founder Wellness San Francisco, CA
About Shala
I am the mom of amazing 9-year-old identical twin girls, wife to my wonderful husband of 15 years, and co-owner of a dermatology practice in Sausalito, CA, which is now in its 5th year and we're planning to expand soon. Exciting times but stressful! I also am very active in my girls' school and in the medical community in Marin County.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I hope to bring a unique perspective (grew up in WV in a Persian-American mixed household, had a childhood cancer, went to Yale College and Harvard Med School/Harvard Derm residency before moving to CA) which I believe has made me relatable, empathic and down-to-earth . I try to keep an open mind and consider that we're all on different paths in our journey through life.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Hiring / Talent Acquisition

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

The struggle is real--work, kids, husband, family, friends--which is why having a network of other fabulous moms is so crucial to our work-life balance (or lack thereof!) I love the heymama mission--great articles and information to share--working to bring fabulous mamas together for support and to learn from one another. I learn from my colleagues, family, friends and patients constantly! My favorite part of my day is building community and a sense of connection. We're all in this together!
