Senior Product Manager, New Products, Location Labs
Tanya is a product and business leader who dives in and does what’s necessary, when it’s necessary, with humor, humility and hustle. She’s usually the one asking why, (a lot), and annoying a few people along the way. She currently leads new product strategy at Location Labs.
Tanya was a marine research scientist for years, studying population ecology of monk seals, the cognitive psychology of bottlenose dolphins, and the fisheries biology of favorite game fish in the Florida Keys. She traded in her bathing suit for an uncomfortable pair of heels and a pant suit, though, when she returned to school for industrial and organizational psychology. She then coached Fortune 500 executives and managers to help them understand how to practice better leadership.
Tanya is a former startup founder and CEO. and VP of Product leading teams in engineering and design for social, community-driven services and platforms. Her not-so-secret passions are digital health, wellness and waiting for the first time she can enter a Gnocchi Eating Contest.
