Avkash Patel and Dr. Sunita Saini - Coached by Fabian DeLeon

Sunita and Avkash have been married for 2 years. Sunita is a born resident of Turlock and has been a board-certified pediatrician for 17 years.  Avkash is the CEO of rebuilding LV.  Avkash moved to Turlock 4.5 years ago. They have four children: Anisha (18), Navin (13), Alisha (11), and Sachin (9).  When asked about his favorite thing about Sunita, Avkash states "She is a Super Mom.  I am in awe of all that she does."  Sunita states that Avkash is a "fixer" and will do anything to help those around him.  "It melts her heart!"  
Sunita attended all Turlock schools growing up and was Valedictorian of THS class of 1991 (Go Bulldogs!)
Both Sunita and Avkash are heavily involved in the community, including school PTA groups.  Sunita has volunteered for Michelle Obama's Let's Move Campaign and the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Avkash is a Master Chess Champion and has placed 7th in the Country.  He states that "chess is opposite of dance, but I'll do anything for the 'queen'".  Sunita has some dance experience, but is most looking forward to making a life-long memory with her husband!
