“When I began my product career, I knew I had found my passion. I loved seeing the impact that strategic focus and alignment could have on business and customer outcomes. What I found just as rewarding was supporting my team’s growth as they evolved into product leaders. This is how I discovered product coaching – it is the perfect marriage of my expertise in product management with the personal connection I make while growing product leaders.”
