Visa began dancing in middle school.  She studied Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam dance for three years under the tutelage of Mr. Radha Krishna in India.  When her own children began dancing lessons in the United States, Visa's passion for dance from her childhood days returned.   She started training under Bonmayuri Kalita at the Natyasangam Dance Academy in 2005.  In December 2014, she accomplished her Arangetram graduation performance.

She loves any form of dance.  She teaches part time at the studio whenever she is needed.  She also manages the payments and finances for the studio.  In addition to dance, her other hobbies are music, movies, books and outdoor activities such as hiking.  She also loves traveling.
