Saili Gosula
Synergy HomeCare
BOD/Executive Director

Saili was born in India and grew up in Brazil.  She had lived in 3 countries by the age of 4, and has lived in the US since she arrived to attend college at the age of 18.  Saili is the owner and Executive Director of Synergy HomeCare and of Active In-Home Therapy. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Math and Computer Science and a Masters in Computer Science, and was the Director of Inventory Systems at Gap, Inc at her last corporate job. After a successful 20+ year in Corporate IT, Saili decided to start her own business and work full-time in a job that she could be passionate about from beginning to end. Always an avid volunteer in the schools and local non-profits, focusing on people and the community became more important to her, and she made a radical career switch. She is passionate about her career in home care, where she gets to help others, be involved in the community, and create jobs. Her two companies together provide a spectrum of services focused on keeping the elderly happy, healthy and safe at home – caregiving, physical therapy, massage therapy, and more. She differentiates herself by her tirelessly giving and positive approach. This has quickly grown her businesses and provided her with many loyal fans and followers, across clients, associates, and employees.

At first, most of Saili’s volunteering was related to her children – PTAs, coaching soccer, theater organizations. As her children grew and her business ties deepened, Saili has continued to be involved in her community, contributing her time and talent to various organizations. In addition to being the Chairman of the Board of the San Mateo Chamber of Commerce, she also serves on the Board of Hillbarn Theatre, another one of her passions, as well as some senior industry organizations.

Saili enjoys singing, dancing, laughing, exercising, reading, and spending time with loved ones and friends.

Fitphoria
Personal Trainer
I love that I have a job that makes people feel better. Personal training and Pilates instruction is my second career. At age 40, like many working professionals, I had trouble balancing family and work, and it was taking a toll on my body. So, I decided to make my fitness and nutrition a bigger priority. I changed my eating habits gradually, scheduled regular exercise, lost 18 pounds in one year, and decided I needed to change my career path. 
 
Because I was feeling, moving and looking better, I was inspired to help others get on track. I started teaching Pilates, got a certification in Personal Training through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and am still continuing education in Pilates and nutrition today. 
 
I've made it my mission to learn the most I can to help clients reach their goals so they can feel great, too. My clients say that I pay attention to their goals, abilities and desires, and help to make fitness attainable, challenging and fun. Check out my website, videos and blog to get a taste of what I do, and let me know when you're ready!
