I attended Hardinge from 1966 to 1970.

Past president of West Hudson Psychiatric Society & mental health coalition.
Volunteer for Rockland family shelter and Asian women's alliance for kinship and equality i.e. AWAKE assessing psychiatric needs of victims of domestic violence.
My career has spanned work in the ER, in-patient, out patient, partial hospital programs, consultation & liaison services. I have been in private practice for the past 30 years. I am interested in Hinduism, meditation, serving local and large communities. I have a spirit of generosity and like to help others less fortunate than me. I am very interested in uplifting women.
My Vision for the Nomination Committee:
I envision LHMCAANA having motivated alumni for the Board and Executive in the following years keeping the spirit of LHMC girls alive.
My Vision for the Liaison Committee:
On the Liaison Committee, I will liaise with FFE and I envision LHMC alumni giving back to LHMC generously in the form of scholarships. We received much and it is time to give back. It blesses him that gives and that who receives.
My vision for the Scholarship program:
I would like to expand the list of grateful Hardonians, amongst our alumni, who are now able and willing to establish perpetual scholarships or sponsor the education of students at LHMC, who are unable to afford the education. We are grateful for those amongst us that have already stepped forward and welcome more of you to do so. These scholarships can be in honor of your loved one, your parents or yourself. We have identified partnerships that enable tax deductible sponsorships possible.We have all benefitted from a world class education at a premier institution that is Lady Hardinge Medical College.
