Shanaz Chowdhery

General Manager, Vemo Education

Washington, D.C.

Shanaz firmly believes that education is the strongest vehicle of economic mobility, having experienced its transformative power firsthand as the first member in her entire family to attend college. After graduating from Yale with a B.A. in Sociology, she became a Teach For America corps member and taught 5th and 7th-grade math in Ward 8 of Washington, DC. In early 2014, Shanaz joined the General Assembly team, first as an Admissions Producer, then as an Admissions Manager, and finally serving as the Regional Director for the Washington, D.C. region from 2015-2018. In 2018, Shanaz left General Assembly to join Vemo Education as a General Manager. Today, she serves on the Vemo Education leadership team and works with non-traditional education institutions to develop and oversee ISA programs that help democratize access to education and align incentives between schools and students.

Throughout her career, Shanaz has pursued two main objectives: democratizing access to high-quality education and optimizing inefficient workflows. In addition to helping skills-based training providers succeed and sharing new keyboard shortcuts to accelerate productivity, she enjoys visiting Virginia wineries, learning to ski, and reading non-fiction.
