Hi, I'm Puja!
I've recently made a move to Starbucks, where I am leading product design across digital platforms used in stores across North America. I've also been a UX design manager in Seattle, most recently at the startup Avvo until its acquisition by the parent company of WebMD. Previously at ZAAZ and Microsoft. I have held product management and user experience roles in startups, agencies, non-profits, and research institutions. I enjoy taking photos, and also a volunteer with Rain City Rock Camp for Girls, empowering young individuals to engage their creative potential through music.
This year, I'm focused on growing my leadership and technical skills, and am trying to publish at least a fraction of my Medium drafts. I'm available for speaking gigs and currently mentor with Hexagon UX, a community of women and non-binary individuals in UX who support each other by sharing stories and fostering growth.
