Vicky Irvin, Senior Product Manager
Vicky thrives on the challenge of understanding customer and consumer needs and then solving the puzzle of meeting those needs in creative, yet practical ways. She has over 11 years of software product management experience, specializing in products in the health and wellness and online community sectors. As a product manager, she loves starting with a vague concept or customer goal, and then working with every team in the company to figure out how to meet that goal by interacting with end users, clarifying business goals, designing user interface concepts, writing software requirements, and creating launch plans. Once a product is live, the most enjoyable part of her job is interacting with end users to figure out how to keep improving their experience on an ongoing basis.
Vicky lives in Encinitas, California, and in her free time enjoys running, swimming, camping, beach time, cooking healthy meals, and chasing after her two preschool-aged kids.
