Thank you for stopping by! I am Anisha Vinjamuri, the founder and CEO of UMM. The inspiration to build a purpose-driven eco-luxe skin health brand stemmed from my personal need and desire for 360-degree holistic body care.
I'm a mom to a wonderful teenage boy 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.
I was born and raised in India, Hyderabad, in a traditional South Indian household where I finished my Masters in Commerce & Foreign Trade. I had an arranged marriage right out of college and moved to Seattle after my wedding. Since then, I've worked in the technology industry (Microsoft) and subsequently owned a technology management firm InnovationsIQ for close to 2 decades. UMM is my 3rd career shift and entirely out of my comfort zone. I enjoy a good challenge :).
Apart from running my business, I enjoy drinking lots of red wine, Olympic lifting, training my K9s, cooking & growing my indoor garden. (Not necessarily in that order).
My day working on project UMM is filled with managing operations, developing ideas around functional body care, creating content, answering emails, shipping out packages to all you lovely folks who chose us as a part of their daily self-care and wellness practices. Last but certainly not the least, figuring out how to be social media savvy to develop a direct line of communication with our consumers.
If you ever want to brainstorm an idea or work with me or need some advice in my area of expertise, send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org Or message me on https://www.linkedin.com/in/anisha-vinjamuri-b1965235/. I love discussing new ideas on a variety of topics, especially startup & growth-related.
