Senior Product Manager, Business Services at

I build products that delight customers in unexpected ways, creating relationships with them that lead to a natural increase in engagement and retention. This in turn, drives business outcomes. I have had the good fortune to lead cross-functional product teams at $122 billion global companies with hundreds of millions of customers, as well as product launches at early stage startups. Regardless of the scale, I’ve found the most satisfaction and success when empowered to focus on the WHY before the WHAT, with a cross-functional (AKA Balanced) team, either remote or co-located. I bring products to life with the features customers need most, based on the data at hand, with the product vision as my compass. Key Specialties: • Product management • Product strategy • Agile development • Analytics and data-driven insights • Customer retention • Game design
