"I connect managers, content owners, technical architects, developers, user researchers—working collaboratively and strategically. My focus is all about user needs. I translate user needs into functional, usable and accessible digital products and services. I also do less fun things like budgets, cost recovery models and I’m a champion priority juggler."
