Richa Sharma, PhD
Associate, New York
Why did you join Deallus?
As I was completing my PhD, I knew I wanted to move into consulting. I started interviewing with the big consulting firms, but I didn’t want to be another ‘cog in the wheel’ and that’s kind of how it felt for me. So, I started searching for smaller, boutique firms with a life sciences focus and came across Deallus.
I really love the culture here. There’s a strong sense of team – I enjoy coming to work and working with my colleagues. I also like that you can be at varying levels of your career and still be able to have an impact within the team, whether it is presenting to the client, giving your input on a proposal, or participating in workshops.
Life outside of work
I love running (and wish I was doing more of it!). Outside of that, I enjoy seeing friends and exploring the NYC restaurant scene.
