I am a Senior Product Manager at LinkedIn, whose vision is to create economic opportunity for all workers globally. I was a Product Manager at Bizo, a B2B marketing company, until LinkedIn acquired us. I also co-founded SameGoal, an education technology SaaS company. As VP of Smart Solutions, I led product management, sales, marketing, recruiting, and customer service. I have an MBA from Columbia Business School and undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I did economic consulting at Charles River Associates. My passion for creating web-based products started in 1999, when I co-founded Yourworks.com, an early social network to share user-generated art, music, and code.
