Welcome to the “Life in the Swimlane” blog series. Here we will feature interviews with Swimlaners to learn more about their experience. This series will give you a preview of Swimlane, our culture, and the people who keep us going.

I was born and raised up in Mysore, the city which is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, stunning architecture, and role as a center for art and education.

Before I started working in Human Resources, I received a post graduate degree in Business Administration specializing in HR from University of Mysore. After that, I went to law school at the University of Mysore.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending my time doing art work, cooking, and exploring Indian Mythology and the science behind it. India is a vast, populous, and diverse nation encompassing many different identities, languages, cultures, and religions. Indian culture has many complexities to it and for me, this brings in the passion I have for exploring India’s diverse culture, temples, mythology, and astrology. 

What does your job entail?

My job entails caring for people. Taking care of people means creating an environment of trust, engagement, and collaboration that helps the organization to sail.

What do you enjoy most about working at Swimlane?

The Dynamic Environment. I personally get bored with repetitive types of jobs. Swimlane is known for their fast-paced and ever-changing nature. I enjoy the variety and challenges that come with adapting to the needs of a growing and evolving company like Swimlane.

What excites you most about your work? 

The sense of community. As I’m a people person, I enjoy building close relationships with staff members and working collaboratively with other departments. I also find it fulfilling to play a role of facilitating the development of the skills and careers of staff members, and contributing to their personal and professional growth.

What do you like to do when you aren’t working?

 Art work, cooking, and cleaning my house. 

What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?

The cleaning OCD I bring into my job and expect perfection in everything. From myself and others as well.

Your motto or personal mantra:

Hold onto your commitment.  

Three words that best describe you:

 Open-minded, hardworking, and responsible.

What Swimlane core value resonates with you the most?

Honesty and Integrity in all the things.
