I moved to San Francisco in 2019 and immediately decided to join ShelterTech as I felt compelled to take action to address the worsening homelessness crisis. As Product Lead, I have focused on managing product development and on improving collaboration across all key teams to ensure we build an impactful product. At ShelterTech, we prioritize data quality over quantity, so ensuring timely and relevant updates has also been one of my top priorities.

Launching SF Service Guide last November was personally satisfying as the people most in need finally have an easy way to access essential services and resources. As part of this project, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with city agencies and community-based organizations who help us better understand the needs of those less fortunate and inspire us every day to make SF Service Guide even better.

As a volunteer, what makes the ShelterTech experience unique are my teammates. I am amazed every day by our volunteers’ dedication, professionalism and determination to build the best products possible while making a difference. I look forward to contributing my skills, knowledge and my passion for social impact while learning from my peer volunteers!
