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.

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

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.
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.
