She graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Economics, and an MSc in Management and Regulation of Financial Risk, both from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Since then, she has worked in the financial industry, as a Private Banker for Standard Chartered and Credit Suisse in London, covering clients across the world. 

From her childhood days, she enjoyed being an activist for the condition, helping raise awareness through various platforms at the time, having given talks, and helped organise fundraising events for the Diabetes Management Institute (DMI), Kenya, and currently an Ambassador for the DiaBeaters support platform for patients. With personal experience of the condition for the last 23 years - Pooja is a pillar of support and inspiration for others, helping them overcome any challenges endured. She covers the U.K. and EMEA regions.
