President, School of Psychology & Counseling
I am a Doctoral student of Clinical Psychology. Originally from India, I have been a part of this diverse culture in USA for 2 years now. I have worked as a Human Resource professional for 6 years and enjoyed every bit of my life in between the hectic schedule. Now during our free time me and my husband love traveling, photography and being with the friends we love so much. As a school Senator, I would aim at promoting relationships across schools and hold up the values that makes Regent unique.
