Bhavya was born and raised in India and her job brought her to Albuquerque in a strange twist of fate. She liked Albuquerque and the people here so much that she decided to move here as a full-time student. She holds an undergraduate degree in Biotechnology, and has experience working as a Financial Analyst for Private Equities and Investment Banks. However, her true passion revolves around optimizing operations & marketing functions within organizations to create value and help align the organization with its true mission. She wishes to utilize her quantitative and analytical skills for this in her career going forward. Through this program, she wishes to help our partner organizations do the same, and in turn help make a difference to the New Mexico community which she now considers her home. In her free time, Bhavya enjoys hiking, and enjoying the beautiful New Mexico outdoors.
