I am a software engineer at Course Report in San Francisco and previously was a software engineer at Tradecraft. Before that, I was a Data Analyst at Reforge, a Growth program for experienced professionals. Before that, I was Product Manager & UX Design Lead at Assembled (fka TenXList), 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, in 2016. I completed a B.S. in Computer Science at Tufts University in 2015, and founded an organization for young women who wanted to start startups called The Violet Society in 2013. I completed General Assembly's UX Design Course in 2013, Project Breaker's Design Thinking program in 2012, and Breakthrough Collaborative's Summer Teaching Residency in 2011.
I am a trained Bharatnatyam, Bollywood, Ballet, Jazz, and Contemporary dancer & choreographer and have been dancing for 20 years. In college, I was co-captain of Tufts Tamasha, an all-female competitive Bollywood-fusion dance team, and a member for 3 years before that. I'm a certified BollyX fitness instructor. In my spare time, I also enjoy drawing, painting, and reading.
