Mimi Marks is an attorney by day, a mom of two rambunctious toddlers by night, and an aspiring writer by 4a.m. A first-generation Indian woman raised in Texas, Mimi has spent the last decade in Chicago growing her legal practice, and the last few years navigating the waters of being a 30-something parent and working mother. Mimi has recently rediscovered her first love, writing, and aspires to empower others and help build community through her work, especially among women. She also likes to write about funny stuff.
