About the guest
In her “previous life,” Priyanka worked for an International air lines in India after earning her commercial pilot’s license, after that she earned her Masters of Science degree in Geology and worked as a petroleum geologist for Shell, Kerr McGee and Anadarko. After a life-changing experience, she realized that life is too short to not follow one’s passions, and she set about working on achieving her life’s goals sooner than she had planned.
