How does this work?

I’m a product and strategy leader who is passionate about helping companies accelerate growth through innovative customer experiences, strategic partnerships, automation, and integration. I leverage my product management, strategy, and leadership skills I have developed through owning the strategy and roadmap across various products and SaaS offerings, leading agile development teams to build and launch numerous product features and new products, and the testing and innovation mentality from Intuit. These experiences have positioned me to help high-growth companies create world class products and offerings. On a personal level, I’m passionate about the power of technology to transform the everyday life of people and businesses across the world. I have experienced this in my personal life growing up and witness first hand how this can transform and accelerate the growth of businesses. I’m always looking to grow my professional network, learn something new or take on a challenge so please don't hesitate to reach out to talk shop or maybe even a bit about travel, skiing or boating.
