Here's the story -- I began designing websites in high school. This was 1999 when we all used AOL Press and I learned Adobe Photoshop, PageMaker, and then Macromedia DreamWeaver to create websites and newsletters. In college, I joined two major campus groups as webmaster and learned the ropes of marketing to college students. I was promoted to Lead Marketing Coordinator at UC Berkeley Residential Computing, managing all print and web materials for 6,000+ residence hall students.
Since college, I have worked through several tech startups and non-profits. I have found that I thrive at solving problems in fast-paced environments with big goals, and I especially enjoy leading web projects as a product and/or project manager. Both my work experience and side projects in chartering various women-in-technology groups have utilized my abilities in culling resources and maximizing ROI regardless of budget and other constraints.
My non-profit work with Women 2.0 and Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners has honed project and people management skills -- I’m flexible, responsive, and adapt well to high-pressure environments. My background in web design, marketing, and product management comes in handy at fast-paced tech and startup environments. I indulged in web 2.0, social networks, and social media since its infancy. In my spare time, I dream of building useful webapps in my spare time, and attend hackathons and industry events regularly.
My portfolio of marketing/design collateral is located in the left column of this webpage.
I am currently looking for a role in product management. I will also consider roles in project management, web design, and marketing. As a startup veteran, I have worn all hats -- sometimes several hats at once!
