What relationship has been most influential in your life?
My uncle Mukesh, who died in a plane crash when I was 10. In the most formative years of my life, he was present, engaged, curious, affectionate, and loving with me. He taught me to have fun and made sure that I believed in myself. He protected me from bullying and complimented me on my ability to connect to people. He even let me ride the white horse with him into his fabulous Indian wedding!
Professionally, Jim Gordon and Mark Hyman are physicians who not only showed me there was an entrepreneurial path that an MD could take in medicine, but also believed in me at the times when I lost faith in myself. Their steady friendship and wisdom has inspired me to keep moving forward, even when it was hard.
