I am originally from Blacksburg, Virginia. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my childhood, which led me to obtain my undergraduate degree in English literature from the University of Virginia.

I currently live in Charlottesville, Virginia, and work for PRA, which is a contract research organization in the pharmaceutical industry. I am a Software Quality Engineer on the in-house software development team, ensuring that the software we develop works correctly before it is released. Through my work, I have gained a keen interest in the pharmaceutical industry, and at Fuqua, I plan to pursue the Health Sector Management certificate.

I have been married since 2007, and my husband is originally from New Delhi, India. We enjoy travelling together, and one of our best trips was to India. I greatly enjoy eating Indian food, watching Hindi movies, and learning about Indian culture. My other hobbies include watching sports (primarily golf and tennis), reading, and knitting.
