VIBHA GUPTA M.D.

Founder and Executive Director

Second gen daughter of Indian immigrants, born, bred and raised in the midwest, now firmly transplanted to the left coast. I started NINS as a way to positively channel my frustration and create something that combines my passion for food, culture and people. My hope is that this can be something that is fun, transcendent, educational and above all helpful.
