Would it be grammatically incorrect to use a comma after a dash? Here is an example:

"If you are looking for someone who is willing to take on the challeges to overcome obstacles — in order to provide top-notch client satisfaction —, then I believe that she has what it takes to do just that. "

In this case, the phrase " in order to provide top-notch client satisfaction" was separated with dashes within the sentence because it is an "abrupt interruption".

Now the reason for having the comma, after the abrupt interruptional phrase, is because the phrase "If you are looking for someone who is willing to take on the challeges to overcome obstacles" is an introductory phrase.

Any clarifications and/or corrections would be greatly appreciated.

 It's awful. Many issues of punctuation are style. This one is terrible. If the author wanted to add that parenthetical comment, the parantheses are the way to go.
"Any punctuation that normally would have been used in the sentence if the dashes and the material they enclose were not there should appear.

How would you proceed to do this if the sentence was already in parenthesis and was, indeed, an abrupt thought? Example:

(Even if they tell you everything—and there's no way of knowing that that's true—, there are some thoughts that just simply can't be put to words.)
I would omit the comma; it clutters the sentence:

(Even if they tell you everything—and there's no way of knowing that that's true—there are some thoughts that just simply can't be put to words.)
I would rather say: "If you are looking for someone who will overcome the obstacles of providing top-notch client satisfaction, then he/she has what it takes to do just that."

I would put the subordinate clause at the end.

FluentButNoProIf you are looking for someone who is willing to take on the challeges to overcome obstacles

That is a subordinate clause.

FluentButNoPro— in order to provide top-notch client satisfaction —,

it is not parenthesis and you don't need it but if you want it then add it to the end in a different context

there you go.
