I spent my ‘growing-up’ years in India, and adulting years in America! Me and my husband moved from Nagpur, India to Eden Prairie, Minnesota 12 years ago; at once falling in love with the charm that every season brings to this warm, welcoming state.
I am a mother to my feisty 6 year old daughter and my equally spirited 2 year old boy. When I am not participating in their hoodlum/shenanigans, you will find me obsessing over books of all sorts. A self-proclaimed children’s book enthusiast, with a slight problem of hoarding books. I am passionate about early childhood education and developing emotional intelligence at a young age.
My formal education is in Microbiology and Public Health and I have held a variety of positions in the past, from research, undergraduate teaching to health communications at the University of Minnesota. Since the pandemic hit, I have primarily been enjoying being at hime with my kids. When I am able to, I volunteer with a Non-Profit called One Life to Love.
A die-hard F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fan, I identify most with Monica! I enjoy gardening, books, coffee, and soaking in the world through my kids’ eyes.
