Ashka and I worked on several projects while at school. She demonstrated great ability to not only conceptualize very innovative ideas, but ... to also lay out a clear path to executing them. Her intuitions as a designer and her technological knowledge made her a great co worker!
Vikram tej K
We worked together  •  Senior Designer, Visteon Corporation. Previously senior designer, LUMIUM.
Hi all, I have worked with Ashka at Visteon, It was an awesome experience working with her. She is a process driven, thorough designer. She ... is a dead sharp strategist and a fun-loving team member. She has all the capabilities of leading any project and seeing it through. I am not a person with a great vocabulary but I recommend to work with her without giving a second thought. She has designed this amazing app in the field of STI prevention, I hope she can launch in the market soon. I hope someone from FD community joins her on this fun venture soon. she works fast as hell.
Tapan Mehta
We worked together  •  Drexel grad.
Hi All, I am Tapan Mehta, I am a Neurology resident physician at University of Connecticut. I have worked with Ashka on designing an iPad ap ... plication for Epilepsy management. I know her well, and have worked with her from last 5 years. I have seen her growing into a profound designer and strategist. She is fully equipped to work in healthcare tech. She has all the talent required to take responsibility to lead a startup. She is a very quick learner, and she has always impressed me with her ability to get a grip on completely new subjects. She is kind, sharp, self driven and hard working. In the project related to epilepsy and ketogenic diet she was able to grasp the medical concepts very well and played a pivotal role of linking medical, design and management tams together. She is a great team player and co-ordinates really well with all the team members with different back ground. She can think ahead of time and utilize this skill in her work. Though her works speak for itself, I would strongly recommend FD community to work with her. Sincerely, Tapan Mehta, MD, MPH Department of Neurology, University of Connecticut Health Center, 263 Farmington Avenue, Farmington, CT 06030.
