Sneh is the Program Manager, Monitoring and Evaluation for the SLDI program.
My journey at African Sisters Education Collaborative started in 2013 and since, I have worn many hats- Graduate Assistant, Research Assistant, Data Manager and now Program Manager. One of my major projects at ASEC has been working on building and processing database records for participants of our programs.
With the tremendous support of ASEC staff, we have been refining our data collection to meet all program and evaluation needs. My role as Program Manager, M&E is going to be a huge learning experience and I intend to do my best to support and improve program effectiveness.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Gujarat University, India, and I practiced as a Registered Nurse and Midwife prior to coming to the United States in 2009. I graduated with my Master of Science in Gerontology (2011) and my Doctorate in Strategic Leadership and Administrative Studies (2021), both from Marywood University in Pennsylvania. My doctoral dissertation was a quantitative study focused on exploring differences in breastfeeding attitudes and intentions of nursing students in India and United States.
Side Fact: I am a Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) of the United States Army and I joined the service in 2016. I hold the rank of a Sergeant and I am in charge of Training and Operations for 280 soldiers in my unit. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and I graduated as Distinguished Honor Graduate from the Army Nursing program. Currently, working towards commissioning as an Officer in the Army.
The inception and growth of ASEC over the years has been very impressive. I have a varied range of education and experience but the thought of being a tiny part of the greater good that ASEC is accomplishing adds meaning to my life and keep me motivated to continue my ASEC journey.
