Senior Program Manager | PMO, Shark
What makes your position at SharkNinja unique?
It allows me to lead and learn from cross functional teams during the entire product development cycle, manage up and down and across, and grow through challenging and being challenged in an ever-changing, never-boring business environment.
What is your personal theme song?
Fight Song. Life has its ups and downs. What’s important is to always believe in yourself, keep the fighting spirit and never give up even in the most trying moments.
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.
- My career started at the Chinese National TV network, covering bilingual business news as a reporter and then producer.
- I have 2 beautiful daughters, one into math and science, the other a social butterfly.
- I hate reptiles.
What is your proudest moment to date at SharkNinja?
The proudest moment came at the end of what had been a very challenging project. I had led a cross-functional team overcoming challenges, tight delivery timelines, and constant market-driven changes to successfully launch the NV600 on time. My proudest moment was walking into the Best Buy store, and seeing it right there, on the shelf: our tremendous team efforts had come to fruition.
What is your favorite SharkNinja product and why?
The Nutri Ninja® Auto-IQ® blender. It’s so powerful and makes healthy nutritious smoothies within a minute. I found an easy way to introduce more different vegetables in to my daughters’ diet and also to make drinks on the go for myself.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with my family-walking, cheering at soccer games, ballet performance or concert, pizza/movie night, shopping, traveling with them around the world… I also love taking barre classes as my work out routine.
