Born and raised in rural, central India, Purvi moved to Vancouver to pursue a Bachelor in International Economics at the University of British Columbia.
Purvi is really passionate about mental health & wellbeing, and has conducted research on depression in adolescent youth that went on to get internationally published. She has also kick-started many campaigns for the same back in India. After having worked in the development of a tech-startup in Vancouver, and her own social enterprises, she is really excited to be bringing her interests and skillsets together at New/Mode.
Outside work, you can find her cooking (more than necessary), hiking, or missing her two beautiful dogs who are back in India.
