🧔🏻 Bio

Organic, farm-raised human. With an interactive journalism degree, and five years of experience leading cross-functional product teams, I bring my storytelling and engineering background to each new problem. I’m as comfortable discussing complex API integrations as I am editing impactful marketing copy. I’m a Certified Professional of Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) and I work every day to make the digital realm a more equitable place.

Originally from a soybean farm in Maryland, I now live and work in Washington, DC. At YNAB, I work to identify & understand the problems preventing people from loving how they spend their money – and lead a cross-functional product team to craft solutions to those problems.

❤️ Philosophy

I believe in doing good, and doing it well.

Clear, transparent communication.

I tell the truth & tell it well – and I expect the same of others. I sleep best after sending a well-worded PRD, GitHub issue, or meeting recap.

Hands-on collaboration.

Product management isn’t just telling people what to do. Often, it’s doing the work alongside the team. In 2021, I made 677 GitHub contributions (mostly tickets & simple PRs) and made countless design tweaks in Figma. I’m a digital generalist with a planning habit.

Digital accessibility.

I believe that the digital world is for all people - including those with physical, mental and economic barriers to access. Accessibility is an equity challenge that can only be met with knowledge.

LGBTQIA+ inclusion.

I care about making the world a better place for LGBTQIA+ people to live and work. Together with queer colleagues, I worked to increase the visibility of LGBTQIA+ people at Viget and even led a lunch discussion on queer identity.
