Owner
Parul is the on-site owner of The Goddard School of Chattanooga®. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and a Masters in Corporate Finance from Bentley College. Parul worked for PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Microsoft Corporation and General Electric for 10+ years specializing in evaluating business synergies for mergers, dispositions and acquisitions. After becoming a mother, she saw a growing need in the area for a quality preschool and loved the idea of being able to provide the children and parents in her community with a loving and nurturing environment to grow and learn. As the on-site owner, Parul would like to extend an invitation to visit her at her beautiful school, introduce you to her eager, caring professionals and tell you all about the Goddard approach to learning.
