Shanti Kaur Khalsa
Shanti Kaur Khalsa is a wife, mother, and security professional. She is a Director for Akal Security, a Sikh-owned private security company with nearly 10,000 employees in more than forty states. This is a non-traditional role for women, and particularly for a woman in a turban and Khalsa bana. As such, she has been successful in bringing the Khalsa values to private security throughout her twenty-year career.
She is an active Sikh parcharic in the United States and abroad. Involvement with Sikh teenagers has led to mentoring young people around the world in the Sikh rehit, both in their personal and professional lives. She is an active kirtani, and has traveled widely giving inspirational kirtan and lecture programs. She is a published historian, and regularly contributes articles on both current events and Sikh history to Sikh publications. She currently lives in Espanola, New Mexico with her husband, Tyaga Singh, and their son Bhai Daya Singh.
