A recovering transactional lawyer, Veenita brings over 20 years of advisory experience in large, global law firms and in-house in both emerging and established organizations. Since graduating from Rutgers College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, her comprehensive and diverse legal practice has spanned various industries including pharmaceuticals, venture investment and advisory services, technology, real estate, retail, sports, manufacturing, and marketing. Throughout her long and varied career, what has excited her most is the challenge of counseling and growing start-ups.
Though Veenita lives outside of Philadelphia, as a devoted “soccer mom” to her two daughters, she regularly travels to all corners of the United States to cheer them on from the sidelines. Joining IAE was the perfect opportunity for her to marry her professional skill set with her fundamental belief in the positive messages regarding self-esteem, playing with power, and the benefits of story creation that IAE offers young girls.
Food-obsessed, she is a voracious collector and reader of cookbooks. She is also very grateful to have an incredible cook for a husband who does more than just read the recipes. A superpower Veenita would love to have is the ability to master and communicate in any language.
