Class of 2024

Born in India, I moved to the Midwest at the age of 10. I attended Purdue University as bioengineering and pre-med student. I’ve always had a passion for healthcare but coming from a family of engineers, I decided to merge my two interests and become the first female engineer in the family. During a business internship in Seoul, I realized the impact I could make within the pharmaceutical industry as an engineer.

After school, I spent the last three years working in global operations at AstraZeneca. I loved developing my analytics skills while solving complex business problems. I also had the opportunity to be a member of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 Vaccine Team. I decided to attend business school to sharpen my business acumen and have a more strategic impact in the industry. I chose Ross for its strong Michigan network, action-based learning opportunities, and collaborative community.

Ask me about living in Ann Arbor, the Consortium, Forté, and any of the listed clubs and organizations I'm involved with!
