Sri brings to her leadership coaching practice a deep understanding of the leader’s role in building successful organizations.

Prior to starting her coaching practice, Sri worked in the corporate sector for 14 years. She rose through the ranks of the healthcare software division of McKesson Corporation to become director of development and technical services. At Lucent Technologies, Sri managed a global team with members in all continents.

A resident of Lancaster, Pa., Sri founded Upohar, a catering company whose social mission is to generate employment opportunities for resettled refugees.
