The Little Things Foundation
While connecting deeply with individuals, she realized that most often people with issues do not reach out to the right people at the right time for help. There is also a stigma attached to counselling that makes one hesitate to meet a counsellor when there is a need for clarity. She realized that there is a great need for an educational model in relationship enhancement. Thus, by creating safe spaces for dialogues on relationships, The Little Things, conceptualized in February 2018 is based on the principle of early intervention and psycho education. The collective comprising of certified counsellors, mind coaches, financial and communication experts, work towards laying a good foundation for relationships with a special focus on marriage. Her team carefully research, collate and present the best of little things people can do effortlessly to ensure big differences in their relationship with themselves and with those around them.
NSRCEL, a felicitous affiliation

During her incubation at NSRCEL, she soared to great heights with superlative mentors being the wind beneath her wings. The guided direction and validation stemmed from the eye-opening sessions nourished her to move forward.
With an assertive tone of command, she says, “Being a woman is actually a great strength. Draw on the fact that, as a woman you can do business with sensitivity and sensibility.”
