I’m Monique Tello, M.D., and I’m writing from Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. I’m a primary care physician and a mom, both jobs that demand great attention, and bring rich experiences. I feel very lucky, and very tired. The blog is largely about balancing family and work.
My kids are a 6 1/2 year old boy with autism (Babyboy) and a 5 year old girl (Babygirl). Hubby is Bob Socci, a local sports broadcaster. Then there’s our spoiled rescue cats, Leo and Little Kitty, definitely important family members as well.
I’ve written for other blogs, most recently the New England Journal of Medicine Knowledge+ Blog and also on Kevin, MD. I am a regular contributor at the Harvard Health Blog, as well as the group blog Mothers In Medicine, devoted to the work/life balance of doctor-moms, and I post as “Genmedmom”.
