VIBHA GUPTA M.D.

Founder/Executive Director

Second gen daughter of Indian immigrants, born, bred and raised in the midwest, now firmly transplanted to the left coast. Emergency room doctor by day (and night) I see firsthand the humanity that both inspires and devastates me on a daily basis. 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.

CASSANDRA TALLEY

Content Creator/Twitter mama

Michigan native who spent the past six years practicing immigration law. A true mutt of Irish, English, German, and French ancestors; I love advocating for immigrants and educating folks on immigration law and its impact on immigrants and Americans alike. An avid traveler with an insatiable culinary curiosity I've never met a piece of pasta I didn't like.
