Kshama strongly believes that a person’s access to quality education, healthcare, and employment opportunities should not be determined by their zip code, and is passionate about addressing these inequities through her work. Kshama lives in Belmont with her two kids, two dogs, and husband. You can email Kshama at email@example.com.
