Who am I and what do I love doing?

  • Broke into tech with a non-traditional educational background

  • Taught myself Front-end Web Development and started shipping projects

  • Fast forward 4+ years, I've consistently built and released products + features that solve customer problems

  • Worked with distributed and local Engineering, QA, Design teams

  • Conducted a number of customer discovery and research sessions- Applied Human Interaction Design principles and design thinking to products and systems

  • Formed resources around maintaining healthy remote work environments

  • Consistently try to connect underrepresented and LatinX folks in tech

  • Using my Psychology degree in my day-to-day as a PM and consultant (**which is great because that tuition was EXPENSIVE....**)

  • Oh! I also rock climb, play guitar and make Youtube videos when I'm not deep in tech
