Vasavi unabashedly admits that she’s made enough mistakes and unhealthy choices for a lifetime. Her zone of genius is the ability to listen without judgement. When you talk, she’s listening for your greatness, so you can generate it into action.
Her path in life has inextricably forced her to change her perspective and outlook on life. She had to learn the painful way that in order for her to truly help anyone, she had to help myself first. And most importantly, that real change starts from the inside out.
She plays an integral role in shifting her client’s perspective and outlook on themselves and the world around them.

Vasavi lives in Austin, TX with her Golden Retriever Laney and loves to cook, try every vegetarian restaurant, break a sweat every day, and loves talking to her mother and father multiple times a day! She’s quite the introvert, but can be convinced to go to a social gathering (as long as she has an exit strategy). Her favorite flavor of ice cream is coffee, and would rather get cold brew at 7-11 than a fancy coffee shop. Her ability to relate to anyone about anything is what makes her light up any room that she walks into.
