Growing up in India my dream career was to be a doctor just so that I could be different in a family full of engineers and technologists. When it came time for me to actually make a long term commitment to my studies the apple did not fall very far from the tree. I chose a bachelors in Computer Engineering on a whim and went on to earn a masters in Computer Science - I was completely hooked with technology. I read somewhere that doctors do not upgrade human intelligence but engineers can upgrade computer intelligence and reach for the impossible. That's me.

I have worked in the IT industry for well over 20 years now and joined Cisco 13 years ago. At Cisco, I have held roles in various IT organizations and currently I play an IT leadership and senior manager role in enabling video communications and collaboration services across Cisco. I am consistently energized by all technology innovation and opportunities in this rapidly changing and interconnected world of visual social networking.

I live in beautiful Los Gatos, CA. I am also a full time wife and mom and in my spare time I enjoy reading, movies, cooking and gardening. I miss my family and friends in India and try to visit as often as I can. You can also find me on LinkedIn at
