After experiencing different roles within finance, I felt this strong call to find a function where technology played a bigger role

Can you tell us about your journey into product management? How did you get started?

Product was one of those things I fell into. My undergraduate studies were at Seton Hall University where I double majored in Finance & Technology. From there, I went to work for a Fortune 500 company in a management rotation program within the corporate finance community. After experiencing different roles within finance, I felt this strong call to find a function where technology played a bigger role and financial knowledge was important. I had a friend who had moved into product management one year before I did within the same company, so I shadowed her and talked to everyone I could to understand why product management was so important. Not only did I realize I could intersect the two things that were important to me (Finance & Technology), I also realized that it used my other strengths (presenting, fostering relationships) and I was sold from there.
