I've always been fascinated with how people think, how they learn, and how that changes with interaction with technology. By third grade, I would get calls from the office when the school computers weren't cooperating, and I could walk a grandparent through a UI over the phone that I'd only seen in person while visiting. As a classroom teacher, I learned the power of technology in learning. I developed methods for creating an environment where the technology becomes transparent and enhances learners' ability to see and do. As a product manager, I orchestrate interdisciplinary collaboration. I work with my teams to trust their instincts and empathy in understanding people and interactions, while testing against real-world data and customer interactions.
