Hi, I’m Cristy,

an Operations Director in the DC area.

I enjoy working with growth-stage startups by building strategy, improving processes, and optimizing for efficiency.

Currently, at Skillcrush I oversee the development and delivery of digital courses, instruction, and career coaching. That means working closely with Product, Marketing, and Sales to deliver courses our students love – with the goal of getting more women into tech.

My favorite parts of the work I do? Figuring out complex problems and being committed to a bigger mission.

What’s next? I’m interested in expanding my work in product management.

In my spare time, I like woodworking, eating cheese, and traveling (my pre-pandemic favorite activity!). I’m also very into financial independence.

WORK

Things I do well:

  • Develop processes to make work more efficient and less manual
  • Optimize cross-functional communication so teams can do their best work
  • Own team priorities and ensure they’re met on time and on budget (or under!)
  • Hire and manage teams so high performers grow happily in their roles
  • Create and implement high-level strategy
  • Project management
  • User testing
  • Talk to customers to ensure I deeply understand their needs
  • Learn new things!

I’m also a Certified Scrum Product Owner and trained in people management.

In previous roles, I’ve worked as a freelance web developer, marketing coordinator, and patent illustrator.
