Priyanka Sivaramakrishnan - Office Administrator

Priyanka is a storyteller at heart, and that extends to all of the roles she's held in her life. After working as a corporate lawyer, Priyanka dove head first into books, her original passion. She authored several children's books and worked as a writer, editor, and storyteller, setting up libraries across India dedicated to get kids into the habit of reading early on, by telling them just enough of a story to hook them. After a decade or so of being steeped in the world of children's books, she acquired a Master's Degree in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College, and discovered a passion for cooking and telling stories through food. Her journey into wellness comes from her own struggles with scoliosis and she aims to be a reassuring presence for the clients at the clinic. When she's not greeting clients with her trademark bubbly self, she's busy telling stories on her blog "Passive Aggressive Kitchen", tending to her 100lb dog, or driving through the countryside with her husband.
