Esha brings a wealth of diverse experiences to the Brazelton Touchpoints Center. During her undergraduate studies, she served as a research intern at Saheli, where she contributed to projects addressing domestic violence and sexual assault within immigrant and non-English speaking communities. Esha actively engaged in campus leadership and advocacy initiatives. Her dedication to social justice led her to serve on the Racial Justice Coalition, where she worked on redesigning a campus-wide emergency response plan to improve support for sexual assault survivors and vulnerable populations.

Following her graduation, Esha worked at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as a research assistant in the Department of Medical Oncology. Most recently, Esha worked in the Wu Tsai Female Athlete Program at Boston Children's Hospital, providing compassionate care and administrative support to patients experiencing issues pertaining to the female athlete triad.
