India is passionate about conveying stories that enlighten, inspire and enrich lives — no matter the industry. Her almost 20-year career has spanned entertainment, finance and health care. Through it all, she has enjoyed the art of storytelling. She began in television, where she worked for seven years as an advertising account executive writing and producing proposals, marketing collateral, commercials and television specials to help grow small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. Her clients included pharmaceutical companies, retailers, universities and government agencies, including GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals (formerly GlaxoWellcome), Georgia Department of Agriculture and Men’s Wearhouse.
In the financial services industry, she learned money-management skills as a financial advisor and shared “stories” with members of her community to help them lead more financially healthy lives.
For the past six years, India has worked in health care for some of the world’s leading health care institutions, including The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (the No. 1 cancer hospital in America, per U.S. News and World Reports’ Best Hospital’s Survey) and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, the oldest academic medical center in Texas.
She’s covered stories on breakthrough research and patient care, health policy, medical history firsts and social causes. These stories have taken form through videos, infographics, web content and news articles.
India holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a master’s degree in communications.
