CEO and co-founder
Aparna Ramanathan is the CEO and co-founder of AskMyClass, with a focus on accessible mental health support. Aparna worked for 11 years as a medical doctor in Australia. After moving to the U.S., she coached professional women in practical stress management techniques, showing efficacy through heart-rate variability. Aparna sees a huge benefit in voice technology, being screen-free, hands-free, low-cost, and instantly accessible. It prompted her to first build mental health games on Alexa at home and is now building classroom-specific activities to support mental health at school.
