Q: What’s your role at Populi, and what does an average day look like for you?
A: My role is Product Manager of Provider Intelligence. I work closely with our clients, internal stakeholders, and engineering teams to develop and constantly improve our products. Each day can look vastly different — the only consistent part is the daily scrums with engineering.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about working for Populi?
A: The culture! Populi’s unofficial saying should be “teamwork makes the dream work!” Our success is truly attributed to everyone at Populi working together to deliver the best possible outputs. Having a culture where everyone’s voice is heard is incredibly rewarding.
Q: What do you think is the most important benefit of the detailed healthcare analytics and insights that Populi provides?

Populi’s products enable clients to explore market trends and answer tough questions.

A: I love exploring Austin’s latest restaurants with my fiancé and taking our two dogs on adventures.
Q: What’s your favorite city that you’ve visited?
A: Manuel Antonio/Quepos, Costa Rica. The locals are some of the happiest people I’ve ever come across.
Q: Do you believe in any conspiracy theories?
A: Not typically BUT I just watched the movie Blonde about Marylin Monroe’s life. I suspect the Kennedy family may have been involved in her untimely death. I’m bummed to think we might never know the full truth about what really happened!
Q: If you could live in a movie, which one would it be and why?
A: Jumper! It would be awesome to teleport anywhere in the world.
