Having worked with B2B, B2C, and platform products over the last 15 years, including the last 6+ at Airbnb, I have a unique understanding of what is necessary to launch products that resonate with users, and of how to bring those products to market quickly. I teach and coach at both General Assembly and UC Berkeley Executive Education and am passionate about helping teams use strong product development methodology!
As a mentor, I can help you:
- Build a product strategy and roadmap for your product
- Create a compelling story and/or presentation for your product plans
- Determine what metrics you should use to measure your product success
- Structure your customer research and capture customer insights
- Improve how your product team works, increasing speed and results
- Come up with a personal development plan to build your product skills
- Build a recruiting strategy, prepare for interviews, resume and LinkedIn profile reviews
- Navigate a career change, into product management, or something else!
- Improve your program or project management skills to better execute projects
As a mentee, you’ll have hands on support from me as you work to achieve your goals. Email or text me at any time, and we can set up video calls as needed. Add any questions you have for me to your application, and know you’ll have a 7 day free trial as we start working together for us to make sure the mentorship is the right fit!

Very happy! Colleen was extremely knowledgeable, listened carefully and communicated her professional opinion to me in a clear and helpful way.

Colleen has been literally been a lifesaver. I changed my career during the pandemic and somehow I was hired by a startup despite having very little experience. My mom did a Google search on mentors and found this website. Colleen's profile jumped out at me as being professional yet personable so I decided I had little to lose and contacted her. Best decision I could have made for my professional life. Colleen has been prompt, professional, helpful, understanding, informative, and insightful. She has worked on absolutely everything with me from the basics to higher-level needs. She is advising me on conversations, assisting hands-on with tasks, and guiding me in gaining more experience. She never misses a beat and I know when I email or ask for help, she will be there. I couldn't be more grateful for her help!

I am so grateful to have found Colleen on MentorCruise! She helped me through my first recruitment process and gave me so many valuable advice. She is warm-hearted and responds super fast to emails. I really felt that she cared about me and would definitely work with her again in the future. Highly recommend as a career and life coach!
