Sanjay is originally from Nepal, but has been living in the US since 2008. His greatest joy is his doberman pup who is now a year old and he keeps him busy most of the time. He graduated from Salem State University in Massachusetts and moved to California after getting married. He enjoys being a part of PEERS, and hopes to make a positive difference in the health and well-being of people who identify as mental health consumers. Sanjay enjoys a good Netflix binge but can also be found on long bike rides. Outside of work, he enjoys reading, meditating and playing video games. He always wanted to contribute to society, so joining a non profit organization seemed like a good way to start.
