Skincare Routine: minimal…I have 4 kids and a full time job 😉 I always take my makeup off at night and sometimes moisturize…I know, I’m bad.
General Overview of a Typical Day: Mornings are crazy as I try to get myself organized for work and get 4 kids ready to go to three different places (girls to different schools, twins to daycare). I thank G-d daily for my super hands-on husband, amazingly supportive extended family, and awesome nanny…For work, I drive to 6 different offices – every day is a different office — because I only do uveitis. On my drive, I usually call my mom (I’m an only child and we’re very close). Work is my happy place. I have an amazing team and world-renowned brilliant colleagues who help me take the best care of our patients possible. After work, I rush to pick up the twins from daycare and come home to prepare dinner and listen to my older kids tell me about their days. After younger kids in bed, I do homework with the middle kid, and once she and her older sister are off to bed, I try to hop on my Peloton a few times a week, and then my husband and I often have a glass of wine together and catch up. I’m usually in bed by 11pm. Weekends are for family, friends and (starting to be again!) travel!
