I credit the anime Sailor Moon with changing my life. At age nine, I became so obsessed with the show that I picked up a pencil and started to express my love for it through art. I then found a computer and started to design and code terrible Sailor Moon websites. While doing that, I found awesome communities of folks online through AOL and Livejournal. I didn't understand what was happening back then, but my super nerdy obsession for Sailor Moon grew into a love of digital products, design, communication, and technology.
Currently, I am a product manager for ConnectWise. As a Certified Scrum Product Owner, I own the end-to-end process of product management: developing strategies, roadmaps, feature definitions, marketing, and forecasting. Dual qualifications as a product manager and product marketer give me a unique skillset, allowing me to not only plan and write requirements for complete product features, but also devise how those features play into the overall positioning of the product, pricing and subscription packaging, and go-to-market strategy.
I've been invited to speak on topics such as social media and customer acquisition and retention as well as facilitate workshops on market and competitor analysis, entrepreneurship, startup pitching, design, and coding.
