About

Sucheta began her career teaching communication and neuro-cognitive skills in a rehabilitation setting before moving into the field of educational consulting and professional development. She is the founder and CEO of Cerebral Matters, a company that has helped individuals strengthen Executive Functions, self-management, and self-directed leadership through coaching, intensive programs, and professional development for the past 16 years. Executive Functions permit individuals to be self-directed. This empowers people to freely choose their thoughts and actions in order to conceptualize goals, make plans, and activate oneself, solve problems, and manage themselves.  

Sucheta’s work is informed by ideas and innovation in neuroscience, cognitive retraining, social psychology, and human communication. Her work is rooted in the notion that all brains can learn to self-optimize, particularly those who are often labeled as “capable underachievers”.

Sucheta earned her B.A. and her Masters in Linguistics from University of Bombay. She also has an M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from University of Ohio. Finally, she is Board Certified in Neurogenic Communications Disorders. Sucheta is a recipient of the “Stephanie Macaluso Expertise in Clinical Practice Award” and the “Partners in Excellence Award” for leadership and innovation. She recently received a “Professional Achievement Award” for outstanding professional achievement in speech-language pathology field. Sucheta was an invited TEDx Peachtree speaker in 2013. As a graduate of the Leadership Atlanta Class of 2015, Sucheta is involved in many socially inspired initiatives in the Metro Atlanta area. Finally, Sucheta serves on many non-profit boards including the International Dyslexia Association (GA), the Georgia Speech-Language and Hearing Association, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, and the Sanatan Mandir of Atlanta.

Sucheta’s latest adventure has been the founding of a new software company that will bring her innovative cognitive tools to the web. This project centers around the development of a web-based brain training application designed to help learners optimize their focus, organize their time, prioritize their actions, remember to remember, and become self-directed.
