Leading with data culture, solid mentorship, and emphasis on process.

As a leader, my top priority is to support my team by creating a data culture, taking process seriously, constant education and empathetic mentorship. With these pillars in place, my team can create their best work and stay engaged. I bolster this by letting honest feedback flow in both directions. My aim is to empower my team, have fun, and hold safe spaces for creativity to flourish.

Always curious about the world and how we fit in it, I love to keep up to date on news that affects the world of art, design, data and marketing. I take on the role of librarian, making sure information is collected and stored in ways everyone can access. I also love to facilitate group conversations about hot topics in the design and tech world.

“Luci has been the most amazing manager any direct report could ever hope for. When Luci started working with me she inspired me with her unique illustrations. As our working relationship grew she taught me about data, helped me hone my attention to detail, and pushed my designs to new heights. She always had my back, and helped me achieve any goal I set for myself and for that I’ll be forever grateful. Luci would be the best manger, designer, illustrator, or leader for any team.”
