Amita lives by the motto, “Do your best and leave the rest!” “I love what I do and believe in being my best every day,” she said. “This speaks to me because it helps me focus on what I can control and avoid being consumed by things that aren’t in scope.”

Apart from work, she spends time with her husband and two children. They play board games, read together, hike, and travel. Because Amita has food allergies, she maintains a blog to provide helpful information to others who face similar issues.
