About Me



Hey! I’m Avani!

The girl with passion, persistence, and peace!

I’m an IT Professional, a Leader, a Blogger, a Reader and an all-time Learner!

My Journey

I live in San Francisco Bay Area with my husband and teenager son. I’m born and raised in the city of Ahmedabad in Western India and moved to Silicon Valley before a little more than a couple of years for more explorations and adventures.

I have done computer engineering and I’m fortunate to contribute, learn and grow in IT industry at different levels since almost two decades. I started my career as a software engineer with hands on experience in software and firmware programming. There is almost no looking back since then except a couple of short career breaks when the call was for the dedicated mom!

In the Digital Engineering World, I lead end-to-end Product Development Life Cycle starting from Conceptualization to Stabilization and Value-Add segments. We work as a team for setting up right Frameworks of Agile, DevOps and Cloud Practices using Latest and The Most Reliable Technologies to build Scalable, Secured and Reliable Solutions. I mentor leads and managers for their organic career growth. I lead PMO organization to establish and practice niche processes and build a data centric organization. I have served in distributed domains as FinTech, Retail, Textile, Hospitality and Event Management, Healthcare, and more.

My Philosophy

Life has been gracious to teach me amazing lessons by forming stories through experiences! Practicing values with persistence is the fuel to energize all fragments of my life.

The most important thing life has taught me is to Start and Move On! The key is to start, to keep moving, and then only you can see the path ahead of you! I believe that life is short and just waiting for the perfection takes nowhere. Fun is in Starting Now and Progressing for Perfection!

The second most important thing is Simplicity! Simplicity is natural and crystal clear. It is complex to simplify but then it is simple to understand. Simplicity is about celebrating lifelong companionship with Real You! As perfectly quoted by Leonardo da Vinci: ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication!’

I hope to summarize my life something like this on the day of Goodbye: ‘I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith’ (2 Timothy 4:7)
