Namrata Kothari

Chief of Staff

As a trained engineer, Namrata has an endless curiosity for learning how things work and figuring out how to make them work better for the humans that they are meant to serve. The only thing she finds more interesting than learning how a process or product works is understanding what helps people, teams, and organizations function at their very best as well.

Namrata's operations leadership spans a wide range of industries, including consulting, education, startups, engineering, manufacturing, nonprofit organizations, human capital, retail, and e-commerce. Namrata holds an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and a BS in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University.

As a Seattle resident, Namrata has taken plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Pacific Northwest landscape, including sailboat racing, wilderness backpacking, and any other excuse to head to the water or the mountains year-round and rain-or-shine. She also loves indulging her creativity and curiosity through writing, reading, and culinary experimentation, and believes that kitchen karaoke is the only acceptable way to food prep.
