Sravya Durbha  
About Sravya
I grew up in Greenville, South Carolina and attended UNC Chapel Hill (Go Heels!), where I majored in Health Policy and Management within the Gillings School of Public Health. I worked in healthcare consulting after graduating, first in Charlotte, NC at FTI Consulting and then in Washington, DC at PwC. My work with the National Institutes of Health at PwC involved working with healthcare entrepreneurs, which kickstarted my interest in innovation and entrepreneurship in the health sector. I also worked very closely with the WIN (Women's Initiative) at PwC and got to interact with many awesome female colleagues on special projects for our firm.

At Fuqua, I have been having an absolute blast working with so many amazing AWIB members and Allies as the FY Communications/Digital Media Lead on the AWIB Marketing Cabinet. I also helped plan the Duke MBA Health Care Conference as part of the Health Care Club FY Cabinet and am part of FCCP as well. Outside of Fuqua, I love running themed 5K races, scouting out the best local wines, and abusing the Instagram Stories feature to share all my ~super exciting~ adventures!
