Why do you live in the Columbus Region?

The Columbus Region has everything I want and need without the craziness of a city like New Delhi. This is an extremely friendly, multicultural and multilingual community that is very comfortable to live in.

Why do you work in economic development? 

Economic development challenges you to stay nimble, confident and assertive—and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I really enjoy that it presents a unique opportunity to connect with business leaders from diverse industries and geographies.
