Resume

I am currently a Product Manager of Web Performance at REI Co-op. My responsibilities include managing the site speed initiatives for the co-op with a dedicated team of front-end and back-end engineers, as well as aligning our initiatives with overall business objectives and communicating KPIs to stakeholders.

Previously, I worked as Senior SEO Strategist at Vox Media, Inc. where I leveraged my skills and passion for SEO to improve the presence of our networks in search with product and content strategies.

Before that, I worked as an SEO Product Manager at Gannett and the USA TODAY NETWORK and as a front-end web developer, using my skills in HTML, CSS, and Javascript to improve and maintain their suite of websites and digital products.

I have also worked as an interactive project manager in a boutique design shop as well as a separate national media organization. In each position, I was in charge of multiple projects across differing organizations, bringing each project from conception through implementation. My past experience as a project manager helps to bridge the gap between the development and business side of a company.
