I am Operations Lead at Reforge, a Growth program for experienced professionals, based in San Francisco, CA. Previously, I was President of Assembled, a professional social network for STEM students. I am passionate about the future of education, personal development and building self-awareness, unlocking human potential, creative confidence, artificial intelligence, and learning.
I was co-director of Spectra, an all-women's hackathon, from January 2016 - July 2016. I completed a B.S. in Computer Science at Tufts University in 2015, and founded an organization for young women in technology called The Violet Society in 2013. I've also completed General Assembly's UX Design Course, Project Breaker's Design Thinking program, and Breakthrough Collaborative's Summer Teaching Residency.
I am a trained Bharatnatyam, Bollywood, Ballet, Jazz, and Contemporary dancer & choreographer. At Tufts, I was co-captain of Tufts Tamasha, an all-female Bollywood-fusion dance team, and a member for 3 years before that. I ran multiple fundraisers, designed our logo and online presence, and choreographed dances every year that I was on the team. I'm a certified BollyX fitness instructor.
