Profile

I am an award winning Product Manager and UX Designer with 17 years of experience working and communicating with cross functional teams. I have led award winning Marketing teams focused on digital initiatives and software development teams focused on a variety of software projects. My passion is focused on teams and the products and/or projects themselves. I match and align business strategies with integrated technological solutions that surpass expectations.

I understand and can communicate with Marketing teams, infrastructure, software development, Business Analysts, UX Designers, and clients or internal stakeholders because I at one point of time throughout my career have been part of those teams. This has given me the ability to be a very effective communicator and establish a sense of trust with each of these teams, breaking down the barriers that sometimes occur between these areas. I am a fan of the Lean Agile methodology because, at it’s core, it’s about cross functional teams coming together in order to achieve a common goal. I have worked to help define corporate strategies, identifying problem areas and establishing measurements of success in those areas. I have experience both in an agency setting and in an internal corporate setting.

I am an award winning Product Designer. I managed teams where we utilized an agile process that starts with research and progresses to wireframes, prototypes, and subsequent actionable specifications for developers.
