Like most PMs, my path into Product wasn’t straightforward. I started out studying Mechanical Engineering (with just one course on coding) and realized that it wasn’t for me.
After completing my degree, I pursued my passion for technology and problem solving and joined a tech consulting firm. That’s where I discovered Product Management.
I wasn’t a clear sell right away but I taught myself how to position my experiences and strengths and landed a PM job at Canada’s largest telecom company. There, I launched TV products across Canada for millions of users and implemented best practices for the Product team.
But I wanted more. So I joined a Series A FinTech startup and became their sole Product Manager for a B2B product; we eventually ended up securing customers such as Wells Fargo, Royal Bank of Canada, Deutche Bank, and many other top banks around the world.
Currently, I am working as a Senior Product Manager for an EdTech startup that doubles as a social enterprise.
