Prior to RALLY, Aarti worked as a research assistant at Benenson Strategy Group, where she aided her team in developing messaging and strategy for a myriad of corporate and political clients. She also interned at Center for American Progress, where she produced content for the online advocacy campaign Why Courts Matter—a project committed to discussing state and Supreme Court cases and calling on US senators to confirm a diverse set of judges to fill court vacancies.
She also spent time in Washington D.C. interning for Sen. Maria Cantwell of her home state of Washington. A proud Trojan, Aarti earned her Bachelor of Science in Policy, Planning, and Development from the University of Southern California. She was the Co-President of Teach for Los Angeles, a student-run organization that tutors local elementary-aged children in reading, writing, and math in order to help them reach their fullest academic potential. She also served as the Co-Scholarship Chair of her sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, and briefly participated in USC Women’s Ultimate Frisbee.
Aarti is a Seattle native and a diehard Seahawks fan. When she isn’t watching them play, she enjoys hiking, bungee jumping, rafting, dancing, traveling, and hosting friends. There isn’t a food truck in existence that she won’t try.
