PHILOSOPHY AND FOUNDER
Founder of SELF at WORK,
Design Enthusiast, Data Nerd, & Lifelong Learner
I’m Sandhya and I’m the Founder of SELF at WORK. I believe life is all about the journey – whether it’s hopping on a plane to explore a new part of the world or the internal journey we take with ourselves. The only things you need to pack are the desire to grow and openness to change.
I started my career in the corporate world focused on marketing and sales, building a foundation of process and structure, while developing people. Since then, I have led teams through major acquisitions, experienced highs and lows in company culture and leadership, and worked across different industries experiencing great amounts of change. Through all of this, the main focus of my work has been turning insights into action, and now I am bringing that same focus into personal development work, one-on-one coaching, and team workshops and experiences.
