Hello again!

I love building bridges, whether it's through networking, traveling, or working as a liaison in a team. As an agile product owner at Citi, I am the  bridge between developers,  business users, and cross functional teams  to deliver projects according to  the business' and users' needs.

 

Exceptional User Experience is the essential bridge between a great product's functionality and its implementation. I aspire to create inclusive products that solve problems, provide pleasant experiences, and create a positive impact in the lives of many.  

Upon graduating with a B.S. in Management Information Systems and International Business, and a minor in Business Analytics, I started my career as a UX and Data analytics intern at Citi. I worked on a complete redesign of one of Citi's website with an amazing team, after which I was hired full time as an agile product owner for the same project.

 

Working at Citi on a corporate project and on other stretch assignments helped me discover my passion for UX and product management. To further explore my passion in the field of UX, I enrolled in Georgia Institute of Technology's M.S. Human Computer Interaction Program, where I am currently gaining an immense amount of knowledge in Human Centered Research and  Design. Additionally, I am in the midst of acquiring the Management of Technology certification

When I am not designing, you can find me..

Traveling to new places around the globe, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and surrounding myself with nature helps me broaden my perspectives... 

Participating in Table Tennis tournaments. Focus, teamwork, and commitment are some of the skills I picked up while participating in numerous state and national level tournaments growing up.

Baking to keep up with the quarantine  “Made From Scratch”trend. I find it soothing and meditative to spend time  experimenting with different kinds of ingredients and unique recipes from different cultures around the world.
