Leadership

Besides being hands on with visuals and development, I have led the design and creative direction of products, teams, and design systems that has crafted complex user journeys and solved complicated problems.

Management Background


During the past 15+ years I have led teams in diverse industries including education, health, media, SaaS and non-profits, with environments ranging from tiny startups to Fortune 500 companies. My leadership has been instrumental in contributing millions to these same companies through a good understanding of the design process, coupled with great project management skills. Besides leading teams, I have represented some of the largest corporations at very pivotal meetings. One meeting in particular I represented my department at IBM at Manager Directors’ meeting in Armonk, New York.

This meeting consisted of our CEO, Ginni Rometty, talking to directors of the largest accounts at IBM on how they could be more effective. Besides representing my division at this meeting I also created a web application for the managing director of Pfizer. This application was useful in showing him what we offered as a division. In addition to presenting at this Manager Directors’ meeting in Armonk, I led over 16 internal projects which were important in changing the view of not only our division but IBM as a whole. One internal project I worked on was creating web portals for some of the largest IBM accounts. Working with the account holder, I helped develop a variety of internal web portals for Morgan Stanley, Coca-Cola, MetLife and Pepsi just to name a few. This project helped to add millions of dollars to IBM’s bottom-line.

During the past decade I was the iteration manager of my department. Where I coached my team through design thinking workshops and using agile methodologies including daily stand ups, kanban, sprints and retrospective meetings.

As a manager, it is important to have a far-sighted vision to guide the team towards a clear goal. To that end I led Agile and Design Thinking workshops and created a monthly global web development guild where I mentored other designers and developers around the globe on the best practices in web development. Also, I have created applications that help us be more innovative and perform better as an overall department.

In one project I created a microsite hosting application that stored all the sites we created as a division. Besides this web application, I have been a scrum master and lead teams on creating projects for different departments. Some of these projects include a website I created for IBM cloud division for their annually cloud boot camp and a flier I created for the global woman of IBM.
