Lekshmi Krishnan

Editorial and Marketing Associate

As an Editorial and Marketing Assistant, Lekshmi helps to ensure that your stories are told in the finest manner possible, precisely capturing the gravity of your passion, achievements, and ambitions. She also researches top business schools and maintains Menlo Coaching’s content library and web pages, assisting with the overall content marketing strategy.

Her favorite part about working with Menlo Coaching is the nurturing environment that offers the space for personal and professional growth. She enjoys the warmth and camaraderie of working with an enthusiastic team, whose members are fully committed to Menlo Coaching’s mission of helping people achieve their true potential. 

Before joining Menlo Coaching, Lekshmi was a Research Fellow at the Central University of Kerala in India, where she researched hyperreality in Indian historical cinema. She also mentored graduate students, and assisted them with their academic and professional endeavors. Later, she worked as a content writer at the Center for Culture and Development-The Netherlands (CCD-NL), where she published and edited blogs on traditional handmade fabrics while assisting with social media marketing.

Lekshmi obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English language and literature from Mahatma Gandhi University, during which she was awarded the coveted Junior Research Fellowship instituted by the Central Ministry of Education. She completed her second Master’s degree in Literature, Culture and Society from the University of Amsterdam. Her thesis focused on the ‘“new Indian woman” as portrayed in postfeminist chick lit novels. 

Lekshmi moved to the Netherlands in 2021 and immediately sensed that the small rainy country was where she belonged. As she describes, “Amsterdam was the city where I discovered myself, where I felt truly independent and free.” Lekshmi also loves to learn new words and is positively jubilant when she chances upon an obscure entry in the dictionary. On the weekends, she can be found browsing thrift stores, cooking up a full menu of Indian food, or engaging in combat with irregular Dutch verbs.
