I am a pediatrician, small business owner, and community leader who has called Carmel my home for almost two decades. Prior to my election to the West District seat, I served in leadership roles on the boards of the Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Women's Fund of Central Indiana, and the Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School Board of Trustees. My family and I are proud members of the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana and actively participate in community service at Second Helpings soup kitchen, Habitat for Humanity, and other local non-profit organizations.


I am dedicated to ensuring that Carmel remains a welcoming and desirable place to live for residents of all backgrounds. As a physician and business owner, I understand how important it is to strike a balance between good business sense and compassion. During my tenure on Carmel City Council, I am committed to work with a diverse group of constituents to build consensus and make practical, compassionate decisions that drive vibrant and sustainable growth through data-driven fiscal responsibility. 


When I'm not working, I love spending quality time with my husband, children, our dog, Kulfi, and experiencing all that nature has to offer. I am an outdoor enthusiast and loves hiking, gardening, scuba diving, and travel.


I want to thank you for your trust in me to lead you on Carmel City Council. I promise to always put your interests and needs first as we make this city safer, smarter, and more sustainable.

Keeping Carmel safe and vibrant is a top priority for me. I'll partner with our local first responders and use technology to enhance safety. I also aim to create opportunities for neighbors to connect and get to know each other because a connected community is a safer community. My goal is that our children can grow and play without worry.


Carmel has a wealth of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and students who are eager to invest in this city and create a better community. I will empower these change-makers and ensure that Carmel has access to cutting edge technologies and resources that support our community and build it better. I want to create a Carmel that maintains its close-knit, family-oriented culture while using our city's native innovation to improve accessibility and connectivity for all of our residents. 


As a pediatrician, I know how important it is to promote healthy living.  I believe a clean and green environment is essential for good health. That's why I'm passionate about supporting initiatives that preserve the environment and promote healthy living. I also want to ensure that we support the mental and physical health of all people in Carmel. Everyone in our community should have access to high-quality healthcare and facilities like the Monon Center so they can live a healthy and fulfilling life.

Leadership and Service

I believe that local government leaders need to be transparent about their past work. Throughout my time in Carmel, I've served on boards and leadership positions across non-profits, religious organizations, and schools. I want assure our West District voters that I am a proven leader with no corporate bias or conflicts of interest that would harm the integrity of our city government.
