I am a Harvard trained physician bringing a decade of leadership in the art and science of “being well” to empower today’s leaders to excel at their highest self – and a self proclaimed dancing queen.

Dance isn’t something that can be explained in words. It has to be danced.

Bio

L0A2128.jpg
 

I was the first generation in my Indian family to go to college, raised in Bombay, and I reached what some would say is a pinnacle of the education system, Harvard Medicine. For me, this was the start, not an end -- the beginning of a long journey to make a greater impact on health than I could seeing patients one at a time.

10 years ago, I made a shift from clinical practice to prevention, focusing on program management in wellness (nutrition, mindfulness, stress management, exercise) aimed at helping influential people make change for themselves, and around themselves, multiplying wellbeing in the community, helping to delay or prevent serious illness and enabling people to optimize their impact in life.
