Professional Experience:
I am a recent graduate from Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), and have diverse experience across sectors. I believe that I am well suited for roles in international development.

I currently am the Founder at In Plain Sight, a project focused on creating social networks that foster improved mental health. At HKS, I focused on management, leadership, strategic communication within the context of international development. I was able to hone these skills in my recent position at FleishmanHillard, working with clients ranging from the WHO to the United Nations. While at Harvard, I interned with KPMG Consulting and the United Nations, both in the MENA region, focusing on developing Public-Private Partnerships and on economic transformation. Prior to Harvard, I managed social infrastructure projects for IDFC First Bank, one of India’s largest universal banks, for over three years, and managed large scale projects and grants, both rural and urban, covering livelihoods, health, education, governance, and financial inclusion. I have also worked as a Consultant with Cambridge Economic Policy Associates and Economist with Deloitte. I have also worked in Finance and Journalism. I have extensive experience as a board member of non-profits and social enterprises.

I am a US Permanent Resident.
