Obu Ramaraj was born in India and migrated to Australia in 2006. She had a brother who was differently abled; with a burning desire to find a cure, she pursued a Masters in Biotechnology. When she was not able to get a job in research (translated as ‘fate had other plans for her’), she decided to pursue mortgage broking. She started her own mortgage broking firm in 2009 and is still running a successful practice in Melbourne. She has a passion to help women become property owners and hence authored a book called “Smart Women, Smart Home loans”. She is also an avid advocate of women empowerment and is working on offering finance workshops and one-on-one coaching for the same.
She is quite passionate about other things too! After a span of 20 years, she has gone back to learning a musical instrument called Veena, and has given stage performances for the last three years. Her other hobbies include cooking and painting. Charity is a big part of her and she is the Charter President of Inner Wheel Club of Point Cook, an International not-for-profit organisation that is based on the concept of fun and friendship through charity.
She is blessed with two lovely children and a wonderful supportive husband.
