March, 2019

I graduated in 1999 and then went on to The College of Santa Fe for a B.A. in International Business Management in 2003, attended the Summer Institute for Global Justice, Utrecht, Netherlands in 2005 and then attended the School of Law at Washington University to get my J.D. in 2007.

I am a Partner/Shareholder and Director at Keleher & McLeod, P.A., one of the oldest and largest law firms in New Mexico. I am a civil litigator, primarily practicing in medical malpractice defense, meaning that I represent physicians, hospitals and other medical providers if they are sued. It is a job that I love and believe in, and I am very grateful to get to defend such incredible people.

I serve on the Board of Directors of KIIT Company, Inc., helping to oversee the Boards of Directors of businesses including East West Tea Company and Akal Security. I am honored to have the opportunity to do seva for our community in this manner.

My sister Sarab Shakti K. is also an MPA alumnus. She now works for Apple, Inc. in Cupertino, CA as a Kitchen Manager after years of sharpening her skills as one of Apple’s famed vegan chefs.

There is no education like MPA. MPA has given me context to my overall world view in a way that impacts every aspect of my life. The self-confidence, independence, and composure/meditative mind that are often necessary in my work (and in all aspects of life) were developed throughout my time at MPA. Just today, one of my law partners mentioned to me how unique and valuable my schooling in India was. Not that she had to tell me, because it’s a part of who I am.
