To do something for the nation, is always a passion for her. As she grew up she thought the profession of teaching and academic leadership are the best means for the same. In the beginning, she felt disappointed before negative criticism, inspite of her good intentions she hesitated to move forward. But experience, time and guidance from her ‘gurus’ and peers have seasoned her with good balance of mind. Whatever, she did she wanted that to be unique and different which gave her a lot of challenges.

She was confident that she can contribute much to mould the future citizens.

She was compelled to leave Anchal as she had to shift of her residence to Cochin and then to Trivandrum, to take care of her family. Without leaving her job, she continued working in other reputed schools like BharathiyaVidyaBhavan, Cochin and Trivandrum till 2000. Thereafter, she joined back Sabarigiri Residential School, Anchal as the Principal.
