I'm a writer and journalist of Indian origin focused on the issues that lie at the intersection of gender and health. As a person living with chronic illness, my goal is to challenge and humanize narratives on health and wellness. Prior to freelancing full-time, I graduated from The University of Leeds and spent a decade working in communications and journalism.
I led digital media engagement and communications efforts at Yahoo! India, Picsean Media, a digital publication company in Bangalore, Ashoka, an international non-profit headquartered in Washington D.C, and the Solutions Journalism Network. In 2017, I reported on gender and human rights as a Global Journalism Fellow at the Munk School of Journalism (The University of Toronto).
My reportage and essays have appeared in Catapult, the Guardian, Forbes, Entropy, Yes! and Folks magazine among others.
I currently live in Washington D.C and contribute to Invisible Illness, the largest mental health publication on Medium.com. I also blog frequently on Love and Words, a publication where I write essays focused on health and womanhood.
