About Asha

Hi, my name is Asha.

I have over ten years of leadership experience in municipal government, with a focus on healthcare and technology. I am a committed leader with a dedication to enabling teams to function at their best. I have led the governance and adoption of new and existing technology solutions, evaluated and improved services, and worked with partners to extract maximum value across the corporation to enable business operations and deliver on strategic priorities. My areas of expertise include business process optimization, program & project management, and client engagement.

I am passionate about helping others with career growth strategy, navigating office politics, and leadership. It can be difficult to get a sense of where to start early in your career, and I would love to talk through strategies in tackling some of these tough topics and conversations.

My happy place is lounging on the beach with a good book in hand.
