Why Vivante? Product is a fun job in most organizations, but having the opportunity to build an experience that will translate into improving someone’s health and quality of life is incredibly fulfilling. The culture of collaboration, the team members, and the opportunity to work remotely made joining a no-brainer.
Claim to fame: I am a lecturer at Rice University Business School. I created and taught the first-ever “Intro to Product Management” course. My other claim to fame is that I travel a lot. I met my husband at the Toronto airport, I’ve been to over 60 countries and was lucky to have an extended honeymoon. On our honeymoon we went to Israel, Jordan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Australia, and a big 9,000-mile road trip camping and hiking through the American West.
