I am a product director at Hearst Newspapers with ownership of a portfolio of products that cultivate engaged audiences, deliver meaningful subscriber experiences and help journalists tell great stories.
I am passionate about building a sustainable future for local news. I’ve demonstrated results creating innovative, engaging and impactful journalism — and thinking about the business model to support that work. My career includes a broad range of experience, with specific focus on product management, strategic foresight, scenario writing, audience engagement and leadership in legacy news organizations.
My network looks too much like me — and I’d like to change that. I’ve set aside time to network, review resumes and talk about careers in journalism inside and outside the newsroom (e.g., product management, strategy) with folks from communities under-represented in media.
