Hi there..

My name is Pratheeba. I was born in India and currently living in USA. Married for 8 years to my wonderful husband and blessed with 2 beautiful kids (a son and a daughter). I come from a close knit family and my parents and brother are my biggest supporters. I’m a firm believer of God and grateful for this life and blessings.

I am also working full time and I love my day job. Like many Indians, I did engineering before joining the workforce. After few years, I decided to do MBA in US. Even though I’m frugal by nature, MBA helped me tremendously in terms of financial planning, investment and lot more things.
