Shefali Shah Chong
Health and Mindfulness Advocate
Growing up in India, I developed a passion for creativity, active spiritualism, and equally for science. My creative and active outlet was in dance - I received my certification in Bharat Natyam, a classical form of dance in India, at the young age of fifteen.
Later, when I moved to New York City for my undergraduate degree in Engineering and later a Masters in Business, I leaned on my love of dance and yoga to ground me. To get deeper in my practice and to share my passion with others, I pursued a course in teaching yoga and mindfulness.
Now, as a leader in the biopharmaceutical industry with more than 15 years of experience as an integrator of data, market research and a deep understanding of the broad life sciences landscape, I see a real opportunity to connect my life sciences background to my passion for health and wellness in a way that can deliver true value to broad audiences.
I believe that the next big health movement will be led by an authentic focus on a more holistic approach to health and wellness. It’s not either-or, it’s a true marriage where we leverage science as a powerful platform and create balance in our approach to healthcare by incorporating mindfulness, diet, and exercise. For me, this begins with using my experiences and my voice to start the conversation.
I invite you to join me on this journey to explore how health, wellness and mindfulness are integral to your leadership journey.
