Breaking barriers is Sonal Shah’s passionSEPTEMBER 27, 2021
Exploring new frontiers is the backbone of Sonal Shah’s life. Growing up alongside a very small population of South Asian children in the suburbs of Philadelphia, she has personal experience breaking cultural barriers. This resourcefulness continues in Sonal’s professional life, where she blends her acumen for business and technology to facilitate positive changes across multiple industries.
Sonal leverages her real-life and academic experiences to serve as the Director of Operations for AlphaGroup Medical Communications. She oversees the operations of the company’s agencies to ensure the continued delivery of the highest-quality scientific, medical affairs, and outcomes communication services. She also helps to successfully manage AlphaGroup’s most important asset—its team members. In this capacity, she applies her studies of Change Management from Cornell University and her MBA and BSBA from Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business Administration.
Sonal lives by the quote, “Wake up an hour early to live an hour more.” When she is not working, Sonal engages in outdoor photography and upcycling. She also mentors foster children and advocates for non-profit organizations that focus on emergency relief, financial support, and environmental conservation. And when there is time for more, she seeks adventures via kayak and foot to be one with the natural world.
