Started and led the Human Interfaces group in Messenger, where we focused on defining the core Messenger experience and ensuring it felt great to use every day. Supported a team of 6 PMs across an organization of 100+ on Core Messaging, App-wide Product Standards, and Web.

We built the core messaging experience for "Lightspeed," which involved re-imagining, re-engineering, and shipping 90+ of our core features to be lighter and faster than ever. Lightspeed was also key in Messenger's strategy to streamline development of new clients by writing most logic in the server layer.

Grew a team of 11 designers and leads to build Facebook's Business Messaging Platform and Monetization products. Established a people and business-focused product culture, where success meant that people enjoyed their experience and that businesses could sustainably increase their reach or drive revenue.

We built a platform for businesses to power their services with messaging, for moments like when you might need to ask a question before buying something. Developed models like Click-to-Messenger ads from News Feed that drove revenue for businesses as well as Facebook.
