Elevate K-12 (a service of Edblox, Inc) was created and is driven by a growing team that is passionate about creating high quality teaching and learning opportunities for teachers and students. We are on a mission to make zipcode free intervention teaching available to all students irrespective of where they live. We take pride in being a women-centric organization focused on creating value for children and women.
Shaily started Elevate K-12 based on her personal educational experiences by always being a creative, visual learner. A traditional classroom format never worked for her creative, hyperactive personality. An Industrial Engineer by degree, she dove into education with a teaching degree and teaching for two years in a classroom before getting her MBA at the University of Michigan where she conceptualized Elevate K-12. She had a brief stint as a management consultant with AT Kearney and is also a restauranteur, where she built and sold a three store restaurant in 1.5 years to one of the largest F&B players.
She thinks of herself to be more of a creator and an artist of ideas. She leads her company with focus and a razor sharp “get it done” attitude. Her passion and mission in life is empowerment of kids and women. In her free time, you will find her immersed in a book, or diving underwater or hiking a mountain.
Deepali is the operations brain behind Elevate K-12. She leads the virtual and in-school operations at the company. With a data-driven focus, she brings with her 20+ years of prior operational and analytical experience with GE. Her strengths lie in people development, six sigma operational excellence and developing high service levels while bringing a “quality” focused learning environment.
She is a Mechanical Engineer from Indian Institute of Technology and a PhD from Brown University. In her free time, she tries to sing, gets her focus from yoga and spends time with her husband, two kids and a rough collie aptly named “Lassie”.
