Believe it or not, I was born and raised in Africa! Three generations ago, my forefathers migrated over from India. I grew up under the British standard education system which was prevalent in East Africa at the time and spent some years in my 20s as a teacher in the region. I have my Masters in Education, and I am a life skills coach and counsellor. Here in Las Vegas, I have been a Kumon Certified Instructor for over 21 years. I was amongst the first Kumon Centers to open in Las Vegas over two decades ago.
I have two children. My son is a physician specializing in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, and critical care medicine, and my daughter is an accountant.
Outside of the classroom, I always make time to work with local community groups. I am an outdoor enthusiast and enjoy gardening, hiking, and various water sports; currently I am currently trying to conquer snow skiing. Finally, as an amateur chef, Indian and African dishes are amongst my favorites.
