As an avid lover of the outdoors, Ananda was immediately drawn to NatureBridge when she joined the national board in 2017. 

As a board member, she hopes to expand NatureBridge's reach so that more kids, particularly those from underserved communities, have the opportunity to experience our national park classrooms. 

In 2017, Ananda was recognized on San Francisco Business Times' 40 Under 40 list for her work at Pacific Gas and Electric Company. She is currently Head of Talent Management at Atlassian.

Ananda, a first generation college graduate, earned her undergraduate degree at the University of California at Los Angeles and a graduate degree from Northwestern University. She lives in Oakland, CA with her husband and two children.
