President & Co-Founder
Hey I'm Alok, also known as Dr. K, and I'm President and co-founder of Healthy Gamer. My personal mental health experiences and gaming addiction nearly forced me to drop out of college; however, having overcome these hurdles to become faculty at Harvard Medical School, I've now dedicated my time to creating Healthy Gamer in order to deliver mental health services to help the internet generation take control of their IRL. I stream over at healthygamer_gg on Twitch.
CEO & Co-Founder
Hi! I’m a startup veteran with a track record of building high-growth media companies and high-impact social enterprises. My specialties include working with niche audiences, emerging digital trends, and digital health. I’m passionate about creating healthcare solutions that put people first. I’m so lucky to lead an incredible team on a mission to redefine mental health.
Chief of Staff
Hey, I am the Chief of Staff for HG. I am a total spreadsheet nerd, and its pretty cool that I get to use my technology and operations background to serve the internet generation in the mental wellness space. I love bringing technology and services to market and optimizing team resources to best serve our clients. I have always considered myself a coach, and I am enjoying coaching the coaches! Follow us as we continue to expand the mission and millions more around the globe!
Hey there! I work on product planning and execution for a lot of projects going on at Healthy Gamer, including managing the engineering design and dev teams. I got involved with Healthy Gamer after recovering from my own bout with gaming addiction (read as: I slid into Alok’s reddit DMs), but really appreciate working somewhere that I feel is doing something impactful. In my free time, I really enjoy playing (MMO)RPGs and traveling for food :)
Director of Coaching Services
Hi! I started with HG as a coach in November 2019, coming from a background of engineering and biomedical research. Now, as the Director of Coaching Services, I oversee operational activities, such as platform and curriculum development, service delivery, policy revision, and new product launches. I advocate for our coaches and clients across the company with the goal of making our services more impactful and accessible. I also want to acknowledge my senior cat, KitCat, who is an S-tier WFH office assistant.

I’m Kabir, Community Manager at HG. My role includes developing our discord and reddit communities to create an environment where people can come for growth, connection and support. Working at HG has been super fulfilling, and I am grateful for being exposed to such valuable and diverse perspectives that have allowed me to grow as a person.
I’m Healthy Gamer’s Igor, a small strange man that helps the Doctor experiment on the monster he’s created. I manage Healthy Gamer's research programs. I have a background in medical outcomes research. I am very passionate about finding innovative ways to promote health and science literacy and am very happy to be working to improve our generation's understanding of mental health and wellness.
Product Marketing Manager
Hi, I’m Josmary! I’m a grad student who’s passionate about helping people, and the Product Marketing Manager at HG. I had just started my meditation journey when I first came across HG, and it felt like the stars aligned. I’m grateful I get to work around such talented people at a place that’s making a positive impact. I love all things art, tech, and anime.
Coaching Program Administrator
Hi, my name is Dragon (no, it's not my gamer tag). I've been with HG since February of 2020 and got involved after going on a whim to invite Dr. K to speak at an event I hosted for Boston University's Gaming Club (Go Terriers!). I do a bunch of things for HG, but am mainly involved in the hiring process for new coaches. I have two cats, Bilbao and Cordoba, my top personal achievements are that I can squat 275, bench 175, and my vertical is 2 inches (not actually...). I’m also currently studying counseling in hopes of becoming a mental health wiz like Dr. K one day.
Hi everyone! I’m the Frontend Dev at at HG and I mainly work on the coaching platform. With the help of the other devs and our super talented designer, we pushed out Dr. K’s Guide to Mental Health, the meditation index, and a ton of other features scattered throughout the platform. I’ve been here for a little over a year now and I’m really excited to release more awesome stuff! Before HG, I used to make websites for large alcohol brands such as Ciroc, Johnnie Walker, and Smirnoff. In my spare time I like to game, lift, listen to music (my library is like that meme where you put all your songs on shuffle), cooking, and make amateur content.
Human Resource Administrator
Hi, my name is Syaidah (pronounced Sigh-ee-duh). I am the HR administrator. Some of the areas I cover are to help recruit and onboard new hires, help to explain policies and procedures, explain benefits and champion employee and coach engagement for Healthy Gamer. I love music, all things fiber related, reading, traveling and making memories with my family. I enjoy working for a company that has a focus on improving mental health and promotes a work/life balance.
Senior Web Designer
Hey, I'm Tristan, Senior Web Designer at Healthy Gamer where I work on the UI and UX of our marketing site and coaching platform. Working at Healthy Gamer combines all the things I love — design, video games and mental health. I'm happy to be apart of a passionate team where we all share the same purpose of helping others and improving the mental health of our generation. After work you can find me playing Overwatch with my Discord group, at the dog park with my pup, exploring Austin, or becoming one with my couch.
Hey, ya'll! I initially joined Healthy Gamer as a community lead on Discord in 2021, running events in the tech and career communities. HG was looking for a backend dev while I was in the process of leaving my previous role, and I immediately jumped at the opportunity to join full-time. I work on features for the coaching platform and the guide while doing my best not to break the front-end side too often. My previous experience is working primarily on Microsoft technology, including several years on the Azure Community team. When I'm not spending time with my dogs, Rikku and Lulu, or my plants, I'm deep into some craft project or the latest indie colony sim.
Coaching Operations Manager
Hi! I’m Alexandra (she/her). The Coaching Operations Manager. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Geek Therapist. I have worked in Community and School Based Mental Health for 10+ years. I’ve seen firsthand the lack of access to qualified therapists and mental health resources. I joined Healthy Gamer because the peer support coaching model we utilize is greatly needed in the field and has the potential to become an integral part of mental health care.
When I log off (work/life boundaries!) I am probably curled up with my German Shepherd reading a book or playing a cozy game to relax.
Hi, I'm Acadia, a Growth Marketer at HG. As someone who's passionate about mental health, it's a privilege to be part of a team that makes a positive impact on people's lives. I take pride in connecting the HG community with the right mental health resources while driving growth and awareness of mental health as a whole. When I’m not at work, I like to explore new places with my family, bake delicious treats, watch anime, and play video games. I also run a few nerdy groups as a way to connect with others who share my interests.
