A healthy work environment is conducive to people achieving their goals and being happy at work. This philosophy has driven my 15+ year career creating and shaping systems in which teams can thrive. My winding journey has included a brief stint at web development, QA, agile coaching, enterprise agile, product management, and people leadership. Today, I’m lucky to apply these skills and learn new ones as an Engineering Manager at Spotify. I'm also a proud participant in the technology community. My contributions have included: co-chairing the Enterprise Agile track for Agile2017 & Agile2018. I have also been a meet-up organizer, speaker and guest-blogger.
Today, digital products and companies are not just changing the way we live our lives, but also playing an increasingly influential role in public policy and governance. We have reached a point where consumer goods produced by technology industries are beginning to reshape what it means to be Human.
