Prior to becoming an educator, Prabha spent close to a decade in Technology Consulting, at which time, she taught Languages and the Performing Arts, in other settings.
When not working, Prabha may mostly be found curled somewhere, with a book. She also enjoys dabbling with technology and explores ways to integrate technology with education. Prabha is also an accomplished Indian Classical dancer, having performed both in India and overseas. She enjoys travelling, because she believes that it is a gateway to meet new people and explore new places and ways of living.
