I have a passion for learning.
How value is exchanged globally is ever evolving, which means I’m always learning. Moving money can be deeply emotional, rooted in local contexts within financial ecosystems that are often fragmented at scale. I’m always on a quest for knowledge, seeking to understand the intricacies of the payments and fintech ecosystems so that I can uncover innovative solutions that are both simple and powerful.
I’m most excited about delivering meaningful product experiences.
I want to reimagine what’s possible in the payments and fintech ecosystems and deliver best-in-class experiences that push the boundaries of the industry and drive positive global impact for our society
I’m happiest when:
I’m hiking with my husband and pups. Ask me about some of my favorite hiking trails.
