Hello! I’m so happy you are here. Through training to be a professional athlete (since the age of 9), overcoming a career debilitating eating-disorder, retiring from tennis at 22, going back to college and setting out in the business world, I learned a lot about the body, mind and practical ways to improve oneself. Nehauberoi.com is a collection of these insights to help power your journey to an elevated existence.
Neha is an ex pro athlete, entrepreneur, tennis coach and wellness blogger based in New York in the United States. A former professional tennis player, she retired from the game after 6 years at the very highest level. After graduating from Princeton University, Neha founded AcedUp, a college admissions consulting and tutoring business. She also focuses her time on helping students and followers of her smash-hit blog and YouTube channel, elevate their existence by promoting healthy living and empowering them to adopt positive habits that have enduring physical and mental results.
A graduate of Princeton University, Neha brings a smart, no-nonsense approach to her work, which is grounded in inspirational and practical strategies to improve the body and mind and produce optimal performance both at work and play.
Her professional sports career began at the age of 9 when she moved, with one of her older sisters, Shikha, to Florida to train at the prestigious Saddlebrook Tennis Academy. She joined the professional tennis tour at age 16 and made it to the US Open and WTA doubles finals twice before retiring in order to return to her studies.
While her sports career hit many highs, there were some dark moments that she has had to work through, surfacing happier, stronger and eager to use her mountain of experience to help others start afresh with their physical and mental health, and never look back.
An Indian-American role model, Neha now advocates for healthy lifestyles and excellence in athletics and academics across the US and in India. She also co-founded South Asians in Sports, a network of South Asian professionals that work and play in sports. She is in constant demand for media and speaking engagements and writing appearing on, among many others, The BBC, Sports Illustrated, The Huffington Post, Bloomberg and Al Jazeera.
