I was born in India and immigrated to the US. I completed my Masters in Science at Kerala University, India. After arriving here, I received my diploma in Radiology at the Cook County School of Radiology and later completed my certificate program in Cardiac Interventional Technology at the College of DuPage. Currently I am working in the Cath Lab at Cook County Hospital as a Cath Lab Technologist. Currently, I am serving as Chief Steward for technician and technologist contracts. I represented our brothers and sisters in many grievances and have provided successful outcomes. I will continue to serve our brothers and sisters. I’ve served on many committees in the union such as the political engagement committee, the immigration committee, and the constitutional committee. I’ve been a negotiation team member and I am currently the Midwest regional chair person for the SEIU API caucus. I’ve participated in organizing many activities for the union. The most important one was the Core Center campaign where we unionized core center employees and successfully organized a strike, resulting in improved working conditions and wages. I promise to you all, I will continue to work harder and improve our union in the days to come.
