Maalathi has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston, Texas. In 2010, Maalathi returned to Malaysia and began working in the cargo sector of the aviation industry managing the operations of several foreign carriers in Malaysia. After 10 years, Maalathi felt a need to expand her horizons and wanted to do more to contribute to society. Seeking to make a difference, Maalathi started teaching English to children and quickly realised that working with children and their families brought her much joy. Shortly after, Malaathi left the cargo industry and joined Oasis Place where she continues her own learning journey to assist clients and their families. In her free time, Maalathi enjoys yoga and learning about the benefits of the ancient practice of Ayurveda.
