Chaya has two siblings and she feels blessed to be born to her wonderful parents. Chaya lost her parents when she was a teenager. She attributes the inspiration and determination behind her success to the promise she made to her mother before she passed away.

Over 100 children are given medical attention, cared for, fed, educated, and provided with a nurturing environment which encourages overall personality growth and leadership skills under Chaya’s guidance and inspiration.

She mentors young high school and college graduates in progressing their professional career.
Chaya is also serving as a trustee on the board of MAHER (www.maherashram.org), a non-profit organization aimed at supporting destitute women and children, and Satyana Institute (www.satyana.org) supporting communities through gender reconciliation and inter spiritual training and workshops. Chaya is currently serving as a board member on many professional and women empowerment associations.
Chaya divides her time between New Jersey and California, USA with her husband Satya Mohan and cute little dog Coco. Her husband works as an IT director in BNY Melon in NY.
