San Francisco, CA
Product Manager, Quizlet
Board, volunteer, and speaking opportunities
Born somewhere in between central Pennsylvania’s chocolate factories, cheesesteaks, and Amish country, I embarked on my first entrepreneurial adventure at a very early age. My first business, headquartered in my elementary school cubby, became my first successful enterprise and resulted in my first and only trip to the school's principal and a dividend for my first angel investor, my grandpa. Since elementary school, I've been busy developing a track record of leading and shipping high-value products.
A transplant to San Francisco, I work at the intersection of education and technology building products that make learning more accessible at Quizlet. I consider myself a prototyping pro and believe in testing with real people against actual problems. I aim to understand the problem and to empathize with the person. For me, problem solving is second nature - I just do it.
Professionally, I have worn many hats thus far - analyst, communicator, researcher, manager, marketer, and strategist. As a result, I have a unique ability to manage multi-disciplinary projects and to navigate complex challenges. In addition, I am a multi-linguist of technology-driven business. I speak fluent geek, marketer, editor, designer, and difficult client.
Hopefully I've piqued your interest. If so, let's connect.
