Innovative Time | Product Coordinator / Designer

Product Coordinator: One of my first jobs out of high school was with a childrens watch company. I worked with the design team to coordinate the approval and manufacturing details of the watch designs.

Product Design: As a design student, the team allowed me to develop a few watch designs on my own. This was an invaluable opportunity and really shaped the direction of my career focus.
