VP, Product
Zest Health


I'm a product designer, software engineer, team builder and startup evangelist. I love and enjoy building businesses, teams and new mobile products together with intelligent, driven, fun and passionate people. In my role as VP, Product at Zest Health, I am responsible for our platform, mobile products (iOS and Android), analytics and supporting web applications spanning both design and product development. Additionally, as an active member of the Chicago community and the larger mobile software industry, I often speak and teach on topics like the design of mobile enterprise apps, API engineering and startup team-building. In an earlier role as VP of Product & Mobile for RECSOLU, I led product development and focused on the customer experience, API architecture and mobile applications in a mission to reinvent face-to-face recruiting via a SaaS enterprise platform and connected mobile apps. Previously, I served as mobile technology strategist and headed the design team for Lextech, a mobile engineering group focused on Fortune-1000 enterprise customers looking to deploy custom business apps to an employee workforce. Earlier, I built and led the mobile applications / R&D group for the Tribune Company and was responsible for several dozen apps from conception to shipping including the L.A. Times for iPhone, Chicago Blackhawks for Android, etc as well as the architecture, design and delivery of mobile tools and APIs used across newspaper, radio and television businesses. Academically, I received a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Michigan and a master's degree in computer & information systems from Northwestern University. Specialties: • Mobile Product Design and Engineering • Building, Prototyping, Shipping • Enterprise Mobile Strategy • Strategic Partnerships & Business Development • iPhone, iPad & Android App Development • Product Marketing
