Where I've Been

I’ve spent my professional career in journalism as an award-winning radio producer. My work’s been heard on KERA, NPR, Marketplace and the Texas Standard. I’ve done other production work that’s been heard on podcasts such as Brains On!Death, Sex & Money and Morgan Stanley’s Ideas Podcast.  I’ve also written for Current and Nieman Lab.

Where I Want To Go Next

I’m interested in transitioning to the tech industry. I want to learn best practices in project or product management. I’m eager to start from scratch and learn new skills.

What I've Done

My career has spanned across editorial, product, customer success, and operations. I have a mix of skills that transcends journalism. Throughout my career, I’ve improved or built upon product, processes, and content. I’m happiest working through projects and finding efficiencies.

I enjoy using empathy, goal-setting, and prioritization tactics to solve problems; generating buy-in, connecting dots across teams; building and fixing systems; and mentoring others. I’m also a passionate advocate about equity and inclusion in the workplace and creating a healthy work culture.
