My name is Athira Das.
I grew up in Cherthala, a village on the Southern coast of India. After earning my Electronics and Biomedical Engineering undergraduate degree from Model Engineering College Kochi, I started my data career in Bangalore, India. I have always loved working with customers. I enjoyed finding patterns and making business suggestions with the help of data. During a high growth stage in my career in India, I moved to Chicago in 2016 to pursue my Master's in Business Analytics from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I restarted my career as an immigrant at WeWork. I witnessed the company's accelerated growth and downfall, which helped me understand the management's good, bad, and ugly side. I worked as a Data Egnineer at Meta in the Instagram Ads and Central Social Impact teams.
I discovered the Integrated Attachment Theory to work on myself. I saw some fascinating changes in my personal and professional life. I was always passionate about personal growth and career growth. I took a certification in Integrated Attachment Theory from Thais Gibson. I also did a voluntary apprenticeship program with a smaller group with Thais Gibson for 1-1 and webinar-style coaching.
I left my corporate job in 2023 and joined the Master's in Organizational Dynamics program at the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently enrolled in the Leadership and Organizational Coaching Cohort. My focus areas are leadership and organizational coaching. I am also doing some research about AI coaching.
My coaching style draws from a passion for psychology and systems theory, a decade of hands-on experience in data and the tech industry, and the unique insights gained from embracing immigrant life in Silicon Valley. Above all, my approach is guided by an insatiable curiosity about human behavior.
