M​aalathi earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston, Texas and thereafter returned to Malaysia bringing back professional and academic experience.  Maalathi worked in sales and administration discipline in the aviation industry for 10 years, where she handled a few foreign carrier’s cargo operations​ in Malaysia.

Maalathi realised ​that she needed to expand her horizons further to bring changes to herself and to people around her. Seeking to make a difference, she ventured into teaching young children English during her off days. She then had the realisation that the cargo industry is not where her heart is. Joining the​ Oasis Place’s team, she brings in valuable work experience gained from working both locally and overseas.
