05 Jul Employee Feature | Sweta Kalyankar
Sweta Kalyanker, plant whisperer and IT genius
Sweta’s been working at Boost since January of 2018, and spends her days in the Database and Reporting department as a Data Analyst. While she may be a whiz with computers and numbers, we find it more impressive that she’s never killed a single house plant. Someone tell her to come over to my place and force me to water my succulents.
