RESUME

Value Propostion Statement

Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of gaining diverse experiences that contribute to a company's success. While my focus has predominantly been on client-facing and partnership management roles, I've always sought to understand the underlying reasons behind various perspectives and functions that drive success. This curiosity has led me to navigate different positions in the entertainment industry, pursue an MBA to develop a business mindset, and ultimately transition to the world of technology. I firmly believe in the potential of people, the power of innovation, and the importance of embracing an inquisitive and collaborative approach to shaping the future.

My goal is to support organizational missions by efficiently maintaining, proactively strengthening, and creatively enhancing processes, strategies, and communication methods. With an educational background in MBA and extensive experience in partnerships, client relations, intellectual property, branding, and creative management within the entertainment and tech industry, I bring a well-rounded perspective to deliver value and drive positive outcomes.

Work Experience

2020-2023

Global Program Manager 


In my role as a Global Program Manager, I had the privilege of leading and strategizing for teams focused on Intellectual Property, contracts, and compliance. A key aspect of my responsibilities involved developing effective communication methodologies for both internal team collaboration and partnerships with external stakeholders. This entailed establishing and nurturing relationships with Third Parties and cross-functional teams, facilitating problem-solving and conflict resolution, and implementing streamlined communication flows with robust tracking mechanisms. Additionally, I managed a team of compliance consultants specialized in intellectual property, communications, and contractual compliance, providing valuable guidance and support to Meta Reality Labs.

Before assuming the role of Global Program Manager, I gained valuable experience as an Intellectual Property Strategy Manager, where I honed my expertise in managing intellectual property assets and formulating strategic approaches.

 

Overall, my career has been dedicated to optimizing communications and fostering strong partnerships, allowing organizations to navigate complex landscapes and achieve their goals effectively.

2018-2020

Sr. Manager of Intellectual Property & Partnerships, NBCUniversal

In my role as the Sr. Manager of the IP and Partnerships program, my primary responsibility was to cultivate, strengthen, and manage all external Intellectual Property relationships. This involved employing adaptable communication strategies tailored to each unique partnership and IP holder, while also employing diplomacy to facilitate smooth collaboration between high-profile IP holders and project teams. By fostering effective communication and alignment, we ensured seamless project development and the attainment of overall business objectives.

During my tenure, I spearheaded the establishment of a global process to maintain and align with negotiated contractual agreements with IP holders. This encompassed developing key strategies for Universal Creative, including IP approvals and review, documentation management, process implementation, and overseeing all communication channels. By implementing robust processes, we streamlined operations and ensured consistent interpretation of the IP throughout the organization.

In instances where challenges or misalignment arose between internal and external stakeholders, I took the lead in facilitating conflict resolution. By fostering open dialogue and promoting effective problem-solving, we ensured that projects progressed smoothly and that the IP was utilized in a manner consistent with the shared vision.

Managing and operating the program required overseeing a team of dedicated IP Managers and coordinators. I provided clear assignments, guidance, and support to enable their professional growth and to collectively achieve our goals.

Through my experience in partnerships and process management, I have developed a deep understanding of the intricate dynamics involved in fostering successful collaborations and maintaining strong relationships. I am confident in my ability to leverage this expertise to drive the success of future endeavors in the realm of partnerships management.
