About Me

I’m an experienced Product Manager and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) with a truly entrepreneurial mind.

Some of my skills that directly benefit my Product Management role include brainstorming, market research, presentations, marketing, prioritization, and the ability to make decisions with limited data. I specialize in identifying opportunities, sales, data analysis, and process improvements proven to increase efficiency and profitability.

I have the heart of an artist when it comes to empathy and the user experience, the speech of a diplomat when communicating in a cross-functional teams, and the mind of an engineer when it comes to data analytics and product development strategy. I maintain a positive attitude, have a contagious smile, and I’m fun to sit next to during lunch!
