She wants to keep exploring, even in simple things like learning a new skill or a new recipe. Coming from a defence background, she has travelled the length and breadth of “both India and Bharat.” After completing her B.Sc. in Microbiology, Zoology & Chemistry, she moved to humanities and did a Master’s in English Literature and then subsequently completed her Communications from the Xavier’s Institute of Communications in Mumbai . A friend suggested that she look at the alcobev sector as a ‘brand new’ canvas and a huge opportunity So, after two decades in the banking and financial services sector, she moved from ‘Being a Customer,’ to the ‘Know your Consumer’ side.” Early in her career, she learned that necessity is the mother of invention.
