Work

I’ve been extraordinarily fortunate to have had a rich breadth of work experiences, ranging from doing:

  • product design (ux research focus) at Counsyl, a health tech company (now acquired by Myriad Genetics),
  • research and analyses at the New York City Economic Development Corporation’s Center for Urban Innovation division, and
  • product management at Civis Analytics, a data science company created out of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

Microsoft

July 2018 - current

I’m currently a Program Manager at Microsoft as part of the Azure Machine Learning team. I work to make it easier to wrangle your data for machine learning, whether you want to do it locally or distributed on Spark.


Civis Analytics

June 2017 - September 2017

As a Product Management Intern, I contributed to the Civis Platform, a workbench for data scientists. Specifically, I kicked off the product development process for a new high-priority feature, managing it from conception to design to MVP.

Outside of my core project, I also managed the last miles on 3 feature ships into internal release; conducted market analysis on data science platforms; and added to the data-drivenness of the PM team by developing metrics and automated reporting for my features.

Beyond my PM responsibilities, I was very happy that I got to employ my design chops by conducting user testing alongside other designers; creating user stories; and participating in design sprints on product vision and roadmap.

Highlights:

Being inspired by thought leaders within data science and by deeply passionate data scientists who care about civic engagement and politics.


NYCEDC

June 2016 - September 2016

I received a Stanford in Government fellowship to serve at the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC). There, I worked within the Center for Urban Innovation, which partners with the private sector to identify and launch programs to diversify and strengthen NYC’s economy.

During my time there, I developed strategy and research for 2 verticals: the financial technology (fintech) and healthcare (specifically, health tech and traditional hospital institution) sectors.

Highlights:

Taking a behind-the-scenes look at how initiatives happens in the public sector and how decisions are made at a local level. Learning from and having a community of fellow urban enthusiasts.


Counsyl (acquired by Myriad Genetics)

June 2015 - November 2015

I took time away from college to be a Product Design Intern at Counsyl, where I worked on myriad projects including ethnographic research within ob/gyn clinics and information design for our billing webpage.

Highlights:

Getting lots of responsibility as an intern to influence product decisions, travel, and be client-facing. Working with brilliant designers, scientists, and devs on the cutting-edge of health tech. Having a tight-knit team that cares about professional and personal growth.
