How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at NC as a FullStack Product Designer, which gave me insight into how models form NC’s stack – driving creation of features with value to partners. Then, I moved into leadership by owning the ideation of individual features and facilitating their scoping, design, and development. Now, I’m managing an Agile team for delivery of milestones.
