Uma started working with Brindavan as a volunteer at the Jayanagar centre in 2019. She has had prior experience teaching children in Montessori and kindergarten environments. She has attended the PTC and the SLD courses at Brindavan and found herself drawn to special education even more. She is keen on helping children with different learning needs and she finds Brindavan to be a wonderful place to learn while teaching.

Her other interests are cooking, yoga, meditation and listening to music.
