Your legacy with uma

The Legacy Journey

Getting to the pinnacle of our life's purpose starts with one IDEA! 


Hello, I’m Uma, the voice and spirit behind "Idea to Identity." Born and raised in the vibrant city of Bangalore, India, I’ve called Dallas, Texas, my home for the

past two decades. My journey has been rich and diverse,

fueled by a deep-rooted passion for teaching and

connecting with individuals from all walks of life.


With over 20 years of experience in various realms including

vendor management, procurement, and finance in the

automotive finance industry, I’ve mastered the art of

negotiation and cultivated strong leadership skills.

My heart, however, has always been in teaching.

From inspiring young minds at the age of 16 to coaching

executives and running local community TEDx events,

teaching has been my way of giving back and making a


"Idea to Identity" is a culmination of my lifelong dedication

to learning and empowering others. It’s a space where

stories unfold, lessons are shared, and purpose is found

amidst the plethora of ideas that life throws at us. It’s about navigating through the noise, finding that one idea that resonates with you, and transforming it into your identity.

As a vegetarian food lover, an avid reader, and a travel enthusiast, I bring a global perspective and an inclusive approach to everything I do. I am a mother to two wonderful teenage daughters, a loving wife, and a caregiver to my aging mother. My Indian heritage plays a significant role in my life, guiding my values and enriching my cultural understanding.

Join me on this journey of discovery and empowerment, as we delve into the stories of individuals who have successfully navigated their path from an idea to their identity. Together, let’s uncover the “how” and “why” of finding our purpose and building a legacy that lasts.
