Thank you for stopping by! I am Anisha Vinjamuri, the founder and CEO of UMMSKINCARE. The inspiration to build a body care and wellness brand that bridges the gap between internal wellness and external skin health stemmed from my journey of experiencing burnout while living life at a fast pace in the technology world.
I was born and raised in India, Hyderabad, in a traditional South Indian household where I finished a double Masters's in Commerce & Foreign Trade. I had an arranged marriage right out of college and moved to Seattle, WA, in 2003. Since then, I've worked in the technology industry (Microsoft) and subsequently founded a technology management firm InnovationsIQ, taking it through a successful exit in 2017. UMM is my 3rd career shift and entirely out of my comfort zone, and I enjoy a good challenge :).
I'm a mom to a wonderful teenage boy, Nirekh, and two gorgeous K9 German Shepherds, Axie & Neo. We live in the beautiful PNW and take advantage of time in the healing nature, mountains & lakes around us.
Apart from running my business, I enjoy exploring local wineries and learning about Red wines specifically. Some of my hobbies are Olympic weight lifting, training my K9s, cooking & growing my indoor garden. (Not necessarily in that order).
Thank you for making it this far to learn about me. I hope your journey to healthier skin, better body and mindful moments begin with our thoughtfully developed product portfolio. We look forward to being a part of your everyday elevated self-care moments.
