Episode 2: Meet the Hostess, Part II—Tesi Klipsch

Moms are complex creatures with incredible depths and layers of complexity. Even though Tesi and Leslie, the hosts of this podcast, have known each other for 14 years, each conversation reveals something new. Such are the joys of long friendship—it’s our oldest and dearest friends that we never run out of things to discuss over coffee, wine, or via Skype.

On this Mama Bear Dares podcast, we meet Tesi Klipsch. Tesi lives in Michigan with her husband Zach and five children—born to her by birth and through adoption. Tesi tells us about her interest in health, fitness, and helping others discover their personal best, as well as the challenges and joys of raising five children, three of them whom were adopted from Ethiopia.  Always quick to laugh, Tesi and Leslie enjoy a purposeful conversation that introduces you to one of the Mama Bears behind the podcast.

Follow along as Tesi explores mothering older children, her unique take on current events and race in America. www.tesiklipsch.com.
