Passion for healthcare

"As a medical student, I quickly became interested in what could be done to improve healthcare. The desire to make things better for patients became my driving force. In order to effect change in this complex sector, I believe it is important to have a thorough understanding of both the medical and the business side of things. As a strategy consultant, I’ve found a way to connect these two aspects so I can make a difference for patients."

Inspiring environment

"After seven years of experience working at McKinsey & Company, Gupta Strategists is the ideal place for me to be. I was immediately impressed by the people here and the entrepreneurial environment. This is a group of experts with a passion for healthcare. It is incredibly inspiring to work with the Gupta team and our clients to address complex healthcare issues. For me, this is a one-of-a-kind environment in which to gain further experience and expand my expertise."
