I am a product lead, focusing on projects with a user-centered, human-centered lens.

This includes truly getting in the head of user to see what makes them tick, and identifying and implementing processes and infrastructure where they’re most needed to support the customer, across the organization. I translate a company's mission into a product strategy, vision and roadmap, and embed with tech teams to rigorously test those potential solutions through all phases of research, user testing & feedback, design, launch, and iteration, as well as feedback loops with collaborators. I ensure that stakeholders are heard, and that the final product has measurable success metrics. I seek collaborators who prioritize trust, positivity, and quality, as well as putting their users first.

Two projects I've created that express my perspective on the best ways to create technology:

Hire More Women In Tech: about why it's financially valuable to hire women in leadership positions in tech.

Real Names Online: about the outcomes of "real name" defaults in social platforms, and how it plays out poorly for large populations of people.
