While outside of work, she enjoys diving into books across a spectrum of subjects. In a world dominated by scrolling, she opts for the enriching escape of books during breaks, making the most of every moment.

What is the most useful item in your workspace?
The most useful items in my workspace are undoubtedly my pen and notebooks. They play a pivotal role in my daily routine as a Product Manager. In my line of work, there are countless details and tasks to manage, making it crucial not to forget anything. I find that taking meticulous notes helps me stay organized and ensures that I can create excellent work. Moreover, I also value the ability to revisit and recall what I've read or learned, making my pen and notebooks indispensable tools for both productivity and knowledge retention.
What does your typical daily routine look like?
My daily routine as a Senior Product Manager centers on overseeing our mobile travel app and managing the team. Mornings begin with email checks and team updates, followed by strategic planning. I have a mix of meetings with stakeholders and the development team throughout the day, while afternoons are dedicated to diving into app details and addressing challenges. I wrap up by reviewing tasks and communicating updates to the team. After work, I prioritize personal interests or exercise to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
When you sit down to work for the day, what is the first thing you do?

Coffee or tea?
COFFEE! I love Americano and Latte. It doesn't matter if they are hot or cold :)
