Shivani and Karthik met at the Yale School of Management and instantly connected on both being from Texas and having education-focused careers. Shivani has always felt that the educational opportunities she got in her life comes with a responsibility to create similar opportunities for the millions of girls around the world who face huge barriers to their education, and she is so excited to fulfill this calling as the Senior Director of Development at Technovation. Shivani is a vegetarian and an ice cream lover. She enjoys all things music, and one of the reasons she fell for Karthik was his melodious voice! Another thing they have in common is a love for travel, through which they can learn about the histories and cultures of diverse places and people. Karthik and Shivani tied the knot in 2020 with a small at-home ceremony, but then celebrated post-COVID with friends and family - who are the most important gift in life!
