Bio

I'm a product manager with over 7 years of experience in software and data products. I leverage my communication skills to manage discussions between engineering, sales, marketing, and executive stakeholders to ensure product success. I effectively manage P&L on multimillion-dollar, multi-product lines of business.

Before moving into product management, I wore many different hats in my career including data analysis, quality assurance, implementation, and technical support. As a result, I have a unique ability to manage complex challenges especially in a role where tasks may change day-to-day.

In my current role at Pitney Bowes, I have the exciting opportunity to lead direction for a global product inside the data line of business. Data is key to bridging the gap of physical and digital business operations, and will only grow as more companies realize the value in the data they already collect. We offer a comprehensive global portfolio of unique, up-to-date spatial datasets and reference files to help companies manage risk, understand customer segments, and make decisions with confidence.

I'm also attending the Professional Flex Evening MBA program at the W.P. Carey Business School (Arizona State University). I am looking to round out my business knowledge to help build better products and increase profitability in the future.
