I am a product management strategist & eCommerce expert. I’ve worked for and with some of the largest eCommerce companies in Arkansas. I was a core part of the team at Country Outfitter that created a $100m online boot company on the backbone of Facebook. There, I sat between 20+ devs and designers and translated the needs of the C-Suite into actionable projects and product releases. After leaving Country Outfitter with CEO John James, I co-founded Hayseed Ventures. At Hayseed Ventures, I mentored and served as CTO for 13+ startups and met with over 300 entrepreneurs. Hayseed created over 170+ jobs and has seen follow-on raises and exits of its portfolio companies.

At Engine, I spearheaded the creation and product direction of an entirely new eCommerce platform. From the customer-facing cart storefront, intuitive admin to product creation, I led teams to develop and create a market-ready, sales increasing platform used by multiple brands and a few household names.

I bridge the gap between stakeholders and developers, helping to iron out requirements, assess scope, and then track the projects through to completion. I'm passionate about developer-stakeholder communication, agile tools, and creative solutions to tough problems. I love making connections between people and teams. Fluid communication and finding middle ground solutions that favor the user is my specialty. I think that the strongest leaders are servant-leaders, leading their teams from within to drive success and launch successful products.
