A Senior Business Development Analyst at GlobalFoundries, brings her talent for defining, driving and executing transformation initiatives for business, as well as her passion for community-building and food security to Pitney Meadows.
For Sanju, being on the Board is an extension of a previous collaboration with our Farm. As an international student in management and business at Skidmore College, in 2018, Sanju was selected to be on the team of the Skidmore-Saratoga Consulting Partnership (SSCP), which worked with community businesses, including Pitney Meadows, to analyze current activities and strategies and make recommendations for growth and improvement. Many of the recommendations the team made for the Farm, including enhancing programs for children and families, and building relationships with fellow community organizations have led to some of our most successful endeavors.
Born and raised in Bangalore, India, to a family of food, beverage, and hospitality professionals, Sanju has committed herself to issues of food security both in India and in her current home of Saratoga.
"In India, I did work with NGOs and programs that helped children go to and stay in school," Sanju says. "One program provided two hot meals for students during the school day. It is so important that folks not only have food to eat but that they have access to healthy food. This is a big part of what Pitney Meadows is doing, and I am eager to help the Farm grow in this way and further build bridges to the greater community through its many programs."
