Hello, everyone! I’m Draupati Khubani, but most of you know me as Guddiya. Born and raised in Pune, India, my family moved to St. Thomas in 2004 to help my uncle run the family business. I stayed behind and completed my Master’s in Clinical Psychology, then worked for the government hospital and a private doctor. In 2013, I finally made my way to St. Thomas to join my family. After struggling for months to find a job in psychology, I decided to broaden my horizons, and found myself working as part of Navin’s team.

Navin and Simran started training me right away, teaching me to manage the inventory as well as basic accounting and other administrative work. As technology advanced, I became involved in our company website design, and helped to develop our social media platforms. Taking an active role in my professional development, I sought further training in web development and online brand awareness, and it’s been a pleasure bringing this passion to the Grand Jewelers website.

It’s hard to believe that four years have passed since I joined the Grand Jewelers’ family. From a trainee to a trainer, I’ve grown professionally and personally. As I plan another move back home to Pune, India, to join my extended family, I leave with “The Grand Experience” in my heart—dozens of new friends, a priceless extended family, and a few young, innovative minds to help continue the tradition. I’ll always be grateful to those who have made my journey possible—especially Navin.
