Family and giving back

I have two kids. My husband works in corporate America. I emigrated from India about 15 years ago and have lived in Colorado ever since. I love hiking, biking and gardening. I am an artist and vocalist.

I have 17 years of experience in corporate America. I recently resigned from my job at Boeing, where I managed all of North American and Europe operations Portfolio.

I believe compassion is very important in life and I love to volunteer. The more you give, the more you get back. What goes around comes around. I volunteer with different associations at the Douglas County schools and at the animal sanctuary.

Need for education

I have always been very passionate about education. I look at education as a vaccine. Education has been a single constant in the development of the entire human race. The disease here is a barrier. We can evolve as global citizens. We can focus on being more empathetic and seeing how our actions impact the rest of the world.

Entrepreneurship


I recently started an education website called Learnskillz.

We officially launched around November of last year. It is a marketplace to everything related to tutoring and learning. A lot of places you can find tutoring and teaching but this site brings it altogether. There is a feature where, if you pay the monthly fee, that gives you access to a lot more things at affordable prices. This is an educational technology start-up. Today we have 500 tutors in Colorado and are expanding to neighboring states. Pretty much, we are a marketplace to anything related to learning and tutoring.

We are trying to bring up the best and brightest students from across the world.

We had a kid who lives in a remote part of Colorado who is disabled and can’t travel but wants to learn the clarinet. I am not saying that Skype is the best way to learn the clarinet, but he could now use technology in a way where he can take lessons at home through Skype.
