Director
Shanthala is a successful Entrepreneur and founder of Athena Academy. She started her entrepreneurial journey when she was 28 after being a successful family woman. She always had a great passion for teaching and training. She comes from a family of business heads and so the tricks of the trade flowed naturally.

Her journey started with the IT recruitment industry which lasted for 7 years. Here, while interacting with individuals from various backgrounds and looking at the challenges faced by them to get into the corporate sector, she realized the need for training in English and communication.

She believes that to make a country progress you have to train its future, the youth. She also wants to leave her footprints in the area of women who have successfully balanced personal and professional areas in their life. Her ambition is to work exclusively with women from different strata of society and create an example that nothing is impossible.

She has Bachelors in Arts and has always believed that an educational degree is just a societal identity but in life you require a strong mind and pure heart to reach your goals of life. She loves to read and travel while not working.
