About Vivek and Chai
Married for 15 years.
Living in Northern Virginia with three kids Chai grew up near Boston and is a trained doctor and a licensed massage therapist. She works in Vivek's home building business. She also started and runs Married2PD, an organization focused on providing a place of support for wives of people with YOPD. There is a website, Facebook group, podcast, and a monthly gathering via zoom. She really enjoys gardening and reshuffling furniture and furnishings inside the home over and over again.
Vivek grew up in Northern Virginia. For the last 16 years he has worked with his father in the family homebuilding business, which sounds like a euphemism for a mafia money laundering operation. Now that his wife also works in the company, he shudders at the thought of giving her a performance evaluation. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease 10 years ago, the day after his third child was born.
