Professionally, she is a part of the Healthcare Businesswomen of America Boston Chapter association which is a global nonprofit organization comprised of individuals and organizations from across the healthcare industry committed to achieving gender parity in leadership positions, facilitating career and business connections, and providing effective practices that enable organizations to realize the full potential of their female talent. She is also part of their subgroup called the Tomorrow’s Executive group which is a young professional affinity group dedicated to the development of professionals with less than 10 years of experience in the healthcare industry.

For fun, she is a huge foodie and loves trying out new restaurants and cuisines. Also, she loves to travel to different parts of the world, spend time with my friends and family, watch Bollywood movies, shows, and music, go into the city or beach, cooking/baking, and going to the gym.
