Jean offers a valuable combination of both tactical help and taking in the bigger picture, tailored to technical managers. For example, she gave me guidance and actionable suggestions on improving our engineering interview process, and asking insightful questions to reframe how I was assessing a broader situation.
— Alicia Liu, Head of Engineering at Nava
Jean is a high-integrity leader who built up a huge degree of trust from her reports and peers. She worked alongside myself and other engineering leaders to scale the team; her influence was clearly visible, stretching beyond code to everything from on boarding, to hiring, to management principles and practices. Her pragmatic, process oriented nature, and insight into people’s motivations and fears, allowed her to solve ambiguous problems with complex tradeoffs.

Jean is empathetic, insightful, and dedicated to the people she works with.
