Every adventure needs a calming, chill presence and an excellent negotiator – Pooja takes on both roles naturally. A true third-culture-kid, her time growing up and working across the US, Europe, and Asia gave her a unique perspective of working cross-culturally and a myriad of techniques to conquer the universe. If you’re really nice, she might share some tips. Although she hibernates in the winter, Pooja is always down to grab a relaxed drink and talk about anything. Prior to Ross she was a Strategy Consultant at Accenture, working at the intersection of business, environmental sustainability, and social impact. New Zealand has been on her list of places to go for a while and will leave her with one continent left to explore (fun fact: it’s not Antarctica).
