osvinder Kaur moved to the U.S. from India at the age of 26 after a career in advertising and Bollywood. She’s a managing partner at Jester & Genius
, a brand story company. In addition, she’s on the SMU Cox School of Business
Associate Board and on the board at Bryan’s House. She has 20-year- old twin boys and a seventh-grade boy, all of whom went to St. Mark’s School of Texas
. When she first moved to the U.S. and lived in Tucson, Arizona, she found she was pregnant with the twins and delayed her applications to business schools. “I had a good talk with myself and said, ‘Snap out of it.’ I got into mommy mode, and I stopped my applications midway.” Kaur moved to Dallas when the twins were 2 and eventually attended SMU’s Cox School of Business. After working at PepsiCo Frito-Lay in brand marketing, she joined Jester & Genius. She teaches at SMU as a guest faculty and was invited earlier to teach as a guest faculty at Harvard.
