About Me

As a Product Owner and Senior Business Analyst at Children International, I lead the development and delivery of digital solutions that empower children and youth to break the cycle of poverty. I collaborate with cross-functional teams, stakeholders, and users to define, prioritize, and validate the product vision, roadmap, and features, using agile and design thinking methods.

I am a community leader with a penchant for connecting professionals wherever I go. I am passionate about community building and an evangelist for growing the number of women in technology careers. I enjoy problem solving, public speaking, developing and delivering training, ‘just enough’ documentation, and contributing to high-functioning Agile teams.
