I am excited about the prospect of being a part of the committee for the PM Cooperative – Mid-Career Growth program. This initiative aligns perfectly with my passion for empowering and supporting mid-career women in the product management field. I am excited to give back and contribute my knowledge and experiences to help others along their journeys.

As a product leader with over 10+ years of experience leading product organizations at companies like Chipotle and PetSmart, I understand the challenges and opportunities that mid-career professionals face. I am eager to provide guidance, advice, and support to a group of talented women. I am confident that our collective experiences will lead to valuable insights and personal growth for all involved.
