Leading and scaling teams with a drive to deliver digital transformation results
I'm responsible for leading and scaling a team of product designers to define game-changer digital experiences. I also support agile product discovery and product definition, collaborating closely across design, product, and engineering teams.
As a design manager, I'm the person to speak for the team and filter out the noise, so designers can work without blocking and find resources on their own.
I mentor designers so that they are able to decide through critical thinking and design rationale, so as not to act only reactively, having the power to decide "what to do next".
