I was and raised in the Middle East, Kuwait, a country I called home for a good 15 years. As a teenager, I then relocated to a country my folks called home, India, where I was trained at Fr Muller, to be a medical doctor and graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). Over the years, the different places, people, and life circumstances themselves, gave me a glimpse of the real world.
I was fearless, curious, uninhibited and open-minded.
I was all set to explore, grow and develop my life.
I moved to New Zealand at 29, to study the psychology of Addictions at Weltec (GradDipAOD). It was a whole new world of understanding the human mind, in a whole new way! It was an exhilarating experience.
During that time, I stumbled across a study exploring the link between nutrition and mental health. I took a semi U turn, and dived into the discipline of nutrition – first learning about its effects and later mastering it with an advancement in diabetic nutrition.
I met my now husband Luke, five days after I landed in New Zealand! We were married in 2017 and in 2018, we decided to extend our family of two. During my second trimester, me being ME … I decided that if I wanted to understand the psychology of the human mind more than I already do, I needed to start at the very basics.
So I plunged into the world of psychology again but this time, started at its roots. I graduated with a diploma in Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology (GradDipChildPsych) to help better understand the minds of the little ones, for when they come into this world.
And in 2019, we welcomed our son Joshua.
After a year of dedicating my time to our newborn, I got back to my day job, my skincare line and was back with my books. I was multitasking with writing my book, recording episodes for my podcast and learning about motherhood through firsthand experience.
I continued on my journey of deciphering the inner working of the human mind with dipping my toes in the field of neuroscience. I came out the other end as a certified Behaviour and Cognitive neuropsychologist that helped me add more to that book I was almost done with.
I am a certified Results Coach© from the Authentic Academy, certified Breakthrough Life Coach© from NZ Life Coaching, certified Mental health and Nutrition Psychologist and a member of ANZCAL as a certified Professional Coach.
I currently live my dream life in Wellington with my husband and son!
