Aashka Merchant

Executive Operations Specialist • Executive Office • Department Head

Aashka, in her capacity as Executive Operations Specialist, works with the Executive Director, the Board of Directors and the Executive Team to ensure that all executive operations function smoothly and in sync.

Aashka started her career as a professional intern (as she likes to call it!) working with the World Affairs Council, the UN World Food Programme, and finally, AIUSA, where she’s been ever since!

Aashka received her undergraduate degree from Temple University in Philadelphia and her masters degree from St. John’s University in Rome, Italy–she wonders why she moved back to NY every day!
