I am an engineering professional with 25 years of wireless communication experience in a wide range of roles including engineering management, product development, chipset software, hardware program management, customer management and building strong teams. I moved to San Diego in 1997 from Mumbai, India. Currently, I am a Senior Director in the Program Management Organization in the QCT division at Qualcomm. I hold a Bachelors of Engineering in Electronics from University of Mumbai, India, and a Masters of Business Administration from the Paul Merage School of Business at UC Irvine.

I am passionate about helping students. In my free time I have mentored MBA students from SDSU, coached for different STEM and other activities, and I have been a Science Olympiad coach for middle school students. In John Wesley’s belief I found a resemblance to my dad’s views, who believes in sharing knowledge widely. It is with that belief that I look forward to using my learnings and experience in making Wesley House successful in its mission of eliminating student homelessness and housing insecurity.
