About Jana Soares

I hold an MBA in Marketing and am a Certified Product Manager (CPM®) who is passionate about bringing innovative solutions to market and fostering cross collaborations to solve issues on a global scale.  International experience through work in Australia, study in the UK and France, cultural exchange to Japan, and travel to Canada, India, New Zealand, Portugal, and Spain, has allowed me to develop lasting connections with people across the world.

Participating and winning in Business Plan, Innovation and Hackathon competitions, provided the perfect platform to apply my natural curiosity and creative instincts towards proposals for marketable products to meet customer needs.  I pitched ideas, motivated the formation of diverse teams, conducted market research, and developed award-winning solutions.

My work in the United States and Australia, as a Fulbright Scholar, enabled me to design, implement, and manage projects to improve health.  In my spare time, I’ve blogged, presented at domestic and international conferences, been interviewed by news outlets, participated in Toastmasters International, and engaged in community service.  While managing residents living on campus and acting as a mentor for 3 years, I led teams, facilitated conflict resolution, and helped others grow personally and professionally.

As a product marketer, my goal is to provide customers with innovative products and solutions.
