About me

  • International Experience
  • Regional Background

My role as a Solution Consultant at Skedulo enables me to be a people person, passionate about solving business challenges, creating meaningful engagement with customers, and believing in having a positive impact on society.

From a young age, I have been very curious as to how the microbes, animals, people, and the universe came to existence and what they were made of, and this led me to pursue a master’s degree in organic chemistry. During my education, I won various academic awards, volunteered in raising environmental awareness amongst high school children in China, and took part as a social worker in raising awareness amongst the community via leading campaigns on social issues in India.

I moved to Brisbane with my family and almost enrolled myself in a PhD programme at UQ. Later, I realised that I am a people person and solving problems comes naturally to me and this led me to pursue a career in the technology space. I worked in various roles in the tech space like customer support, data analyst and finally had a calling to work in pre-sales. I currently enjoy this role as it lets me put both my skills and creativity into action plus have a greater impact on society through Skedulo.
