Product management is an incredible discipline that I find incredibly hard to break into. But I love the work that I get to do, and I want others who enjoy this work to have the chance to do so. I have experienced firsthand how diversity makes us work harder to connect, but provides deeper and more meaningful connections, and ultimately, more creative, different, and better work, too. I want to work harder every day to bring more diversity to an industry that desperately needs it, and will absolutely be better for it. And I want to give my time and skills to organizations that are fighting for the necessary change.
On the professional side, I’ve worked in tech for just over 10 years, and 6 of them focused on product management. My passion for problem solving, enthusiasm for learning, and desire for deep collaboration has served me well while building products at both startups and growth-stage companies. I’ve had the opportunity to launch products, to foster innovation while supporting current business needs in production, and to create a strong framework for product and customer discovery that informs the product and business strategy.
