Astha was born in Nepal but she spent most of her life in boarding schools in India. After earning the Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) degree from Delhi University in India and a summer course in Management in London School of Economics in UK, she decided to come to Clark University in Worcester for her MBA in Marketing. During her two years at Clark, she honed her marketing skills not only in class but also in the "real world" as a summer intern at both KPMG Advisory Services and Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages in India. When she graduated in May 2010, she was offered an internship at WICN Public Radio as a website and social media intern. As the months passed by she became more and more involved with the station and took on more responsibilities. She eventually took on the role of Membership Coordinator and since then there has been no looking back. You will find her at the station knee deep in working out every little detail of our membership drives, harassing hosts to send information about their shows for our website and social media, chatting with our beloved volunteers, hosts, staff (anybody she can get a hold of), munching on burgers or smelly Indian food in the conference room. Yes, she is everywhere! She loves her job and people she works with – they are her American family now (go Amerimom Kate!). And though she did not grow up listening to Jazz, she is really enjoying learning all about it directly from talented artists and our knowledgeable hosts.
