Founding Member & Chief Editor
Starting her career in 1994 as the youngest member of a PR firm, Parul went on to work in different aspects of Corporate Communications over the next decade at organizations such as Perfect Relations, Media Workshop and Ascom India. This wide ranging experience gave her a comprehensive understanding and hands on exposure to various aspects of Corporate Communications – from media strategy to content creation across print, multimedia and Internet.
She took a break from full time corporate work only when her children arrived and then decided to spend quality time with them. While she may have stepped back from a full time corporate career, she found a new calling in creative content generation. She credits her two daughters for unleashing her creative side like never before. Parul continued to write on a project basis and also co-founded Tweetmintt, a creative agency that conceptualized and produced personalized, innovative products for children.
Parul is part of the founding team of Momspresso (mycity4kids) and was responsible for the content generation for the website. With a combination of her experience with content and the unique ‘mums’ perspective, she has been able to contribute immensely to the strategic positioning of the platform, including coining the new name – Momspresso.
In addition to her role as Chief Editor, Parul is also heading Momspresso Studios, the video production arm of the company. She brings her core strength in content creation to conceptualizing, scripting and producing videos across several formats. The films that hold particular place of pride in her portfolio include funny slice-of-life videos shot entirely on an iPhone, documentaries made on women’s health issues and critically acclaimed concept-based digital campaigns for brand partners. While conceptualizing these films, her focus is to ensure a progressive and realistic portrayal of women, smashing stereotypes pushed by commercial media for years. She has also anchored over 200 panel discussions, live social media sessions with other mothers and experts and interviews with celebrities.
On Women’s Day 2019, Parul launched Momspresso’s very own talk show, ‘Let’s Talk with Parul’.

Each of our topics leads to thought-provoking conversations with the accomplished guests on our panel – whether an expert, a celebrity, a survivor, an inspirational personality or the quintessential mom-next-door, but each one with a personal story of strength and inspiration. ‘Let’s Talk with Parul’ is produced in partnership with Facebook and is broadcast live from the Facebook Studio every fortnight.
