Why did you join Nextdoor?

I joined Nextdoor because I believe in the power of community and wanted to be part of a company that is dedicated to building stronger, more connected neighborhoods. I saw an opportunity to contribute to something meaningful and work with like-minded people. 

What has been one of your favorite projects to work on?

The Product Vision Prototype allowed me to think creatively and help the design team push the boundaries of what’s possible. I really enjoyed working with the team to explore new ideas and concepts that have the potential to shape the future of our product. 

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? 

Traveling as much as possible with my family. We’ve been all over the world together and have created so many wonderful memories. I also love cooking and creating new recipes.

Most memorable moment at Nextdoor? 

Being able to share visionary work at the company All Hands. It was a great moment to showcase all the work being done to create better experiences for our neighbors. 

Best career advice? 

Be open to new opportunities and change that come your way because the path to a successful career is often not linear. 

Where is your favorite place in the world?

San Sebastian, Spain has the most picturesque beaches and delicious food. I would go there every year if I could!

How do you like to give back to your local community?

We love to give and take from the little free libraries in our neighborhood.
