Since many clients ask me why I do this, I’m making it part of my bio! I am an advisor with Square One Prep because of the fulfillment I feel getting to know remarkable young folks and helping them succeed. It’s really that simple. Now, enabling that success is anything but simple. But I’m prepared. In addition to advising here, I’ve spent the last 7 years honing my coaching and mentoring skills on ADP List, a mentorship platform through which clients worldwide partner with me, now a Top 1% mentor, to navigate their MBA journey and Product Management careers. I love unlocking a client’s potential by digging deep to understand their motivations, showing empathy, and offering brutal honesty with my structured approach. Clients appreciate my focus on their personal goals and experiences to bring out their unique stories. They appreciate the offers they secure at the end of the process even more.

I received a Bachelor of Engineering from University of Mumbai after which I got foundational experience in consulting before attending Kellogg for my MBA. I then transitioned to building products at Amazon where I sharpened my product athleticism. I managed industry-first and billion dollar products across Amazon Search and Amazon Baby Registry & Family. I eventually jumped into startups to lead the entire customer facing digital experience for a Series C real-estate tech startup – Flyhomes – founded by Kellogg alums. Kellogg has played a pivotal role in post-MBA journey. The business school you attend can do the same for you.

I live in Seattle, and when I am not building products or helping clients achieve their goals, I dance semi-professionally. I choreograph and perform in off-Broadway theater productions and teach a variety of dance styles. I also run an Etsy shop selling Indian heritage art, hand-made by me!
