About me

Hola! My name is Natalia and I am the Sr. Product Manager for the Community Tech tools, thanks for popping into this page to find out more about who I am. Drop a note! I am passionate about access to knowledge and excited to tackle that problem together. Prior to WMF, I wrote programming courses for Codecademy (check out the R courses here) + co-built products to increase learning engagement for the platform. I've also tackled knowledge accessibility with the American Museum of Natural History by building products with the Science Visualization Group and teaching at the Bridge Up STEM program.

In my free time, I like to interrogate assumptions and romanticize the power of community while reminding myself individuals are complex! I was born in Mexico and am currently living in NYC.
