  • LAS Director of International Student Success


Languages Spoken: English, Telugu

A little bit about me: I was born in Hyderabad, India, and I moved to Iowa City with my family when I was just 5 years old. As a child of immigrants, I can connect and empathize with the unique challenges that international students face when they arrive on campus. But I also understand the joy of journeying across different countries and meeting others from various cultures.

How can I support you as international student?

  • Guide you through the transition to new university life and American culture
  • Connect you to the appropriate campus resources
  • Invite you to socials and outreach events hosted by the LAS International Student Network so you can build relationships with your peers and important staff members
  • Be a trusting source when you need a listening ear
  • Provide resources to help you achieve your goals (whatever they may be)

I am here to be a part of your support system as you navigate the highs and lows of your college experience!
