About Me

I am an Author, Motivational Speaker,Storyteller, a Creative Writing Coach and a Positive Psychology Coach, dedicated to helping people move from 'surviving to thriving' in every area of life. I received my formal coach training from The CaPP Institute, Atlanta, known for its finest coach training and positive psychology program in the world approved by International Coach Federation (ICF).  I am known through my writings on Meaningful Parenting, Mindful Eating and Leading a Meaningful Life on Four Clover Life. I am a contributing author/essayist/columnist/Storyteller to some of India's leading online platform--------Women's WebReadomaniaMyCity4KidsBlogAdda and contribute extensively to various parenting forums.I am  currently putting final touches to my maiden novel which shall be published soon. 
I teach because I write. To say I was born to be a writer, is the unvarnished truth of my life. As cliche as it gets, the talent undoubtedly lies in my genes;coming from the illustrious, the revered academician, bureaucrat, advocate, scholar and writer- Late Shri.Ramashish Singh- MY GRANDFATHER. 
My husband & I grew up in India and currently live in California, The United States, with our son.

A grandfather who blessed me with his genes and a foster father -late Mr.Raju Raghavan who believed in my talent when I started to falter; I owe it all to them.

My article ‘A letter to my daughter on the first day of her menstruation’ garnered lots of popularity where moms have saved the article to read it to their daughters when they reach puberty. I have received several awards and honors which decorate my writing life. I have written over 100 blogs and currently engage in group coaching with various parenting and woman forums online.
    My story It is your choice won second place in Muse of the month contest organized by Women's Web.
Another story The Typo Error features in the 'Most Read Publication' on Readomania.

Last but not the least, I owe my knowledge, skills, and capabilities to my teachers and the wonderful books that have illuminated my path, my life and made me realize my Purpose. I have four teachers who stay in my mind every moment of my waking life- Dr. Alpana Chalil, Dr. Vasantha Patri, Dr. Anand Prakash and Dr. Aruna Broota. I can never thank them enough for teaching me what was not there in the pages of the book.
