As a startup founder and CEO, and public company exec, Tina was one of my most trusted advisors.  Good managers solve hard problems.  Tina goes one step further.  She builds trust and digs into the personal whys (she is one of the most authentic people I've met) but is also pragmatic – she prioritizes the company first, followed by the team, then the individual.  This gave us a deeper understanding of our business and helped us make better decisions.

Who you are

As the company grows and the team scales, you want team members to maintain a deep connection to end users, a sense of urgency, and ownership that is present at early-stage startups. Whether you’re a year or a decade out from the founding of the company, it will take a mental shift to operate with scrappiness if your team is accustomed to just executing against a clear roadmap.

Working together, we can accelerate the way your team operates, helping you and the team gain confidence that they can understand the needs of end users and navigate ambiguity to ship quickly.

By learning and iterating quickly, finding product-market fit for new features and products might not be so unlikely.


Tina’s history as an engineer and a designer at start-ups have shaped her into a powerhouse with lots of insights to share. In addition to her research and design skillset, she has an uncanny ability to quickly assess team dynamics and identify and leverage the strengths of each team member. This ensures that ideas flow seamlessly within teams and contributes to the overall success of the project.
