In my words,
I was born in Mysore (a beautiful city known for its palaces) in Southern India. My parents are both from India. They are both physicians who ultimately immigrated to The U.S in search of fulfilling that magical American dream. As a family, we left India when I was 3 and we have lived and experienced the diverse and lively cultures in Saudi Arabia, England and the Unites States. My nomadic upbringing has really fostered my love for languages ( I also speak Kannada and Spanish ) and my intense passion for connecting and helping better the lives of everyone I meet.
I am married to Ajay Pallegar, a Sarasota based Attorney. Together, we have 2 beautiful young boys. We have called Sarasota home for 8 years and are excited to see all the influx of energy and development that is happening around us.
Aside from cooking, eating and sharing food, I love to travel; I love to create art and designs and I have the best time when I’m with the company of my closest friends figuring out all the ways to live our best lives.
To me; learning never ends; so I’m currently working on deepening my expertise and further training in the fields of lifestyle med, culinary med, functional med, integrative med, Ayurveda, and life coaching.
…. and yes! I’m ultimately going to weave these pearls that into my practice of medicine.
My medical practice is located in Sarasota, Florida. As far back as my memory serves; connecting with, helping and making delicious food for people has always been my thing. These qualities are my nature, which over time I have nurtured and culminated as my medical practice; If you are looking for ways to take charge of your health; you are in the right place!
