Renaissance Woman: Dr. Hetal Gor

Dr. Hetal Gor OB/GYN is indefatigable, tireless, always on the go, unless she’s with her beautiful three brilliant children or with her handsome devoted husband Mois, whom she met in Medical School in India. 

Hetal is brilliant, like a diamond, beautiful, charismatic, funny as heck, an incredibly dynamic woman that I’m proud to call my friend.

I met Hetal at a Mother/Daughter Dylan’s Candy Bar Joya Das Event, that I was co-sponsoring. I met and chatted with her lovely two daughters and with Hetal. My daughter Samara, Nisha, my daughter in law, more like a daughter and her sister, Priya were all there. Our devotion to our daughters was evident. It was the warmest night and I knew right then and there I must connect with Hetal.

 Hetal and Myself

Hetal and Myself

Hetal is a very generous giving soul.

Where do you get all of your energy Hetal? She says with a smile,

“I love to interact with people!”

Does she ever!

Hetal, a strong advocate for women’s rights is a strong presence in the South Asian Community in the Tri-State area. Hetal has a medical TV show airing in India and in Indian households. In fact I appeared on her show focusing on balancing Parenting and maintaining an egalitarian Marital Partnership. Though there are so many more women in STEM,  she says, “there are still so many Indian women and women in general that don’t take themselves seriously and are not taken seriously by some men. We think of ourselves last and are made to feel guilty for putting ourselves first.”

She is a powerful role model for her daughters and son. Hetal is involved with Domestic Violence Charities, on a Women’s Empowerment Committee, and on a Health Committee for Vaccinations and PreNatal Care supporting women in India. She is the Vice-Chair of the International School in Pakistan teaching underprivileged kids, as well as on an advisory capacity on Boards for multiple charities.

Hetal has been very instrumental in fundraising for the renowned Bergen-PAC theater in Englewood Cliffs New Jersey and was recently honored at their Gala. Did I share that she is a fabulous emcee? Not microphone shy, yet humble and truly owns the floor!

As a staunch Hillary Clinton Supporter Hetal brought me mid October 2015 to the Chair of the DNC Michael Kempner’s home for a major fundraiser where she and I met Hillary for the first time! What a thrill! I gave Hillary my book and Hetal spoke with her at length about Healthcare. Hetal was very impressed with her commitment and her activism for girls, women and families. Hetal hosted Hillary at her beautiful home in May of 2016. I was honored to be at both events.

Hetal was asked to launch a Talk Radio Show AM 1600 called “Let’s Talk Politics,” a weekly Sunday 12 noon series. She had interviewed such notables as Cory Booker, discussing The Politics of Politics! Hetal was on the floor of the Democratic National Convention as well. I recall a Selfie with Cory Booker and live video on Facebook of the event!

Hetal and I share a common love of Dance and Music. I loved going with her to Dancers Against Cancer. She is the Queen of Selfies.

I love our birthday November ritual of taking each other out. Last year her favorite Thai in Manhattan, this year low key at Bibi’s in Westwood N.J.

Hetal is an adoring Mom, devoted wife and deeply connected to her extended family in India. 

What's next Hetal?

With a smile she says,

“Cool Sculpting!

I’m all about building confidence, self esteem in women and for their being their personal best selves inside and out!”

 Hetal and her Beautiful Family!

Hetal and her Beautiful Family!
