Niti is a former property lawyer who made the decision to leave the field of law and pursue her passion for working in the disability sector. She now works for an SDA (specialist disability accommodation) provider and brings valuable insights to the table, drawing from her firsthand experience as a parent of a child with additional needs, her legal skills and her role as Community Engagement Manager with her employer.

Having specialised in the Specialist Disability Accommodation sector and gained extensive experience providing legal advice on SDA projects, Niti is well-equipped for her role as Board Chair at SEQUAL. Her skill set includes a strong emphasis on customer service, analytical prowess and unwavering drive to ensure those with disabilities can take charge of their lives and gain greater independence.
