How One Very Special Military Mom Finds Balance
Say hello to Grecia Smith! She’s a mother of two, wife, daughter, sister, and U.S. Navy veteran.
When Grecia turned 18 years old, she joined the U.S. Navy. Her husband Chaz served in the Navy as well, and though challenging, Grecia and Chaz cherish their time in service. All the while, the two fell in love and were engaged after three months while deployed in Japan. Married two years later, they now share two children – a son and a daughter.
However, after giving birth to their son, Grecia suffered from postpartum depression while Chaz was deployed. That inspired Grecia to receive her bachelor’s degree in psychology and focus on mental health counseling with a concentration on women and veterans. Never one to sit still, she’s also part of the League of Women Voters and the Women Veterans Alliance.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, The Balancing Act is giving her a day of relaxation, beauty, and more. You don’t want to miss this!
