Hello! I'm Joyce - Senior Product Designer and Certified Scrum Master, currently based in Cupertino, California. My personal philosophy at work is to stay humble, stay motivated, and be useful. Sometimes I write and speak. I'm all about these three things:
I thrive on cross-functional product teams that value autonomy and collaboration. I believe in limitless learning, rather than being limited by the activities associated to your job title. To that end, I love being cross-functional - with a deep knowledge in design, and the ability to work across disciplines like Scrum and product management. I want to be part of a team that seeks to continuously improve and learn from one another.
I'm passionate about using agile management frameworks, especially Scrum. When executed well, I've seen how Scrum can accelerate excellence - it cultivates high performing teams and quality products, all in half the time compared to traditional frameworks. I'm particularly drawn to the integration of design thinking and agile software development - a topic that much of my thought leadership content centers around.
I'm fascinated by the speed of innovation and the power of technology to build impactful human experiences. Platforms that I'm especially interested in include native mobile apps, conversational UX, and connected experiences (IoT).
