As a project associate, Suchi plays a vital role in supporting the consulting team by managing client project logistics and operations to ensure a successful partnership that reaches our shared goals. Her “growth mindset” and seamless adaptability makes her well-qualified in enhancing the client experience and understanding their unique needs.
Prior to joining McKinley, she worked at the Wake County Public Health Department to identify valuable resources for uninsured and under-insured patients. She went on to become a research assistant at the North Carolina Institute of Medicine where she assisted in facilitating health task forces. She specifically focused on statewide policies around maternal and infant health and early childhood development. She credits the facilitation aspect of her role for piquing her interest in consulting.
Going to college in a predominantly homogeneous setting after growing up in a diverse community rich in culture instilled in her the importance of social acceptance and human connection. She quickly got involved in several on-campus diversity and inclusion efforts. This experience, combined with her background in public health, has shaped her interest in giving back and helping others while keeping an open mind, maintaining compassion and always looking for opportunities for improvement.
Suchi has a bachelor’s degree in global public health studies with a minor in economics from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Some of her favorite things to do include cooking, checking out local restaurants, getting lost in a good book, practicing yoga, and hiking and running. She recently ran her first 5K and aspires to add longer races to her list in the near future!
