Who is someone you admire or an interesting person you have met, and why?
I would say, my husband, he is the most positive person I have met in my life, and I am glad to always have him with me.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
I am very proud of accomplishing my Chartered Accountant certification in India. I am the third generation in a row in the same profession. I am also, of course, very proud of my children and being a Mom.

What are some of the best pieces of advice you have received?
I like these two pieces of advice that I have received: "Knowledge is power, but the application of knowledge is more powerful," and "Hard work never goes wasted."
