Director - Accounting
After graduating from college in 2000 with a degree in accounting and passing the CPA Exam, I started working at a big accounting firm. However, after around three years, I felt the need for a change and joined Insight, a cable company where I met Rajesh who was consulting there. We quickly became friends, and when he started Mage (then MENTIS), he asked me to help with the financial accounting.
As one of the first few employees to join Mage (then MENTIS), I have had the opportunity to play an integral role in managing the finance operations. In the beginning most of my interactions were with Paula, and occasionally with Rajesh. However, over the past few years as our India office expanded, I have had the privilege of collaborating and working alongside Priya, Meera, Dinesh, and the sales account managers.
Apart from my work at the company, I used to have an audit office in New Hampton where I would practice. However, due to the pandemic, I had to change my working arrangements and shift base to my home, which has proven to be more convenient. I do occasionally visit my audit office, but most of my work is now done remotely.
Outside of my work, I am a busy mother of three children who keeps me occupied all day. My daughter will be starting college this year, while my two sons are still in school.
As a food enthusiast, I relish the experience of trying new cuisines. Although I was initially hesitant to sample Indian cuisine, my perceptions were completely transformed after trying it with Rajesh and Paula. Now I have developed a deep fondness for the flavors and aromas of Indian cuisine, which has become one of my favorites. As an Italian, I have an innate love for my native cuisine as well.
Apart from my culinary adventures, I also prioritize my physical well-being by making time for daily exercise. I hit the gym every day and thoroughly enjoy engaging in various forms of physical activity. For me, exercise is a vital aspect of maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle, which allows me to stay energized and focused throughout the day. During the festive season, I invite my friends and family to my home and enjoy spending time with them. In addition to my work and family responsibilities, I also enjoy indulging in a few hobbies in my free time. Reading books and traveling are two activities that bring me enormous joy and help me unwind. However, with three children to care for, I have to plan my trips well in advance to ensure that they don't clash with my kids' activities.
I recently visited Iceland, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. Exploring the scenic beauty of the country, including its glaciers, waterfalls, and hot springs, was a breathtaking experience. The people there were friendly, and the food was delicious. I enjoyed learning about the country's culture and history as well.
I am eagerly looking forward to my next trip, which is already planned for this year. I can't wait to discover new places, meet new people, and create more beautiful memories that I will cherish for years to come.
My inspiration in life is to be the best version of myself as a mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, and businessperson. I believe that constant self-improvement is crucial to success in all areas of life.
