Designing silver linings

I believe resilience is the key to building mental strength. As a mother, business leader, cancer survivor, and caregiver, resilience has helped me thrive throughout life's curveballs. My mission is to share the learnings from my warrior stories and help individuals and organizations create their own silver linings.

A Champion of Resilience

Strong personal resilience is critical for coping with uncertainties, overcoming hardships, and protecting our mental health. Parul helps individuals, teams, and organizations learn how to better face challenging times and emerge from them wiser and stronger by discussing actionable steps to build resilience.

A Unique Voice for Healthcare

As a BRCA1 carrier, cancer survivor, caregiver, and former management consultant and genomics healthcare executive, Parul uniquely represents the patient voice while also speaking the language of business stakeholders. Topics range across genomics and precision medicine, women's health, cancer, patient advocacy, transparent access to quality care, caregiving, and more.

Parul's blog, "New Job. New Baby. New Cancer.", has been read across ~80 countries.

A Believer of Ikigai

Across a 15+ year corporate career, Parul has navigated transitions from management consulting to start-ups, from advisor to operating executive, from consumer tech to healthcare, from full-time to part-time, through motherhood and personal health issues, all while re-defining her own sense of identity. Topics include finding purpose, intentional living, ikigai, and how to navigate your career to pursue an authentic life.
