My Story

Niha Wunnava, MHSA created her elite, private Executive Coaching Program, CEO Reinvention for clients to master skills to be profitable and powerful without missing out on life or family. She believes strong, healthy leaders create strong healthy companies and thriving communities by being extremely effective – not working harder.

She quickly earned her place as a key player in the Boardroom & C-Suite early in her career working alongside CEOs and Executives and was the Director of Talent Development at Emory Healthcare.

Niha is exceptional at building strong relationships by solving strategic problems and understanding & encouraging people at their core.

She speaks and coaches CEOs and Executives internationally at Google, Apple, Amazon, P&G, NYU, Northwestern University School of Medicine, University of Michigan Ross School of Business and The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business.

She is also the host of the podcast Brown AF – Brown, Ambitious and Free to accelerate profitability and executive success by creating belonging and influence at the very top.

Niha lives with her husband and 3 daughters in Durham, North Carolina where she served as the Chair of the Board of Directors for an International Language School and moved to a 37-acre campus during her tenure. She puts her heart where her dreams are to make great visions a reality.
