Bio

Hi my name is Whitney.

I live and work remotely from a tiny house in Austin, Texas.

I manage engineers at Medium and

sometimes speak about remote work, leadership, and OKRs.

Hobbies include tweeting and

seeing new cities.

 
 

"We need a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and skills to improve the products, platforms, and services we deliver."
