About Me

I am a curious, self-driven Product Manager with a background in UX Design and library based project management, where I’ve championed for the user, equity and access. 


Who I Am

To me, good product keeps the user at its very heart and creates meaningful solutions that empower and enrich lives while returning value to the business.  A huge believer in the power of human-centered design to change communities, I used design thinking throughout my seven years as a professional librarian to build empathy with stakeholders at all levels and deliver value to our users through customized experiences and meaningful services.

Moving into product and user experience was a natural progression for me.  I care deeply about the user and working with them to solve problems in ways, and contexts, that make sense to them.  I am a champion for equity and access and believe in “meeting people where they are.” By beginning and ending with the user, we can create empowering solutions that push the world forward.
