Experience

Through her education and experience, Karishma has been trained as a research-based reporter. Her undergraduate minor in Biological Sciences has given her a background and knowledge in reading through medical jargon, which allows her to relay the information you need to know on health and wellness. Karishma's passion for beauty and lifestyle emerged from her days as a classically-trained dancer. She learned how to do her own elaborate stage makeup for Indian classical dance recitals. These skills helped her later on when she had to do her own makeup as a TV reporter. Now, she wants to inspire other women to love themselves and feel beautiful through self-care.

Education

Having earned her BA in Communication-Media from North Carolina State University and her MS in Journalism from Boston University, Karishma has a strong foundation in informational writing, coupled with content marketing skills.
