UX CONTENT STRATEGIST
Mona has deep experience creating world class content solutions for a range of audiences and across devices and platforms. She has experience building productive, lasting partnerships with engineering, UX, localization, marketing, and other partners to understand and deliver on customer needs and expectations. Mona was most recently with Microsoft, where she developed a comprehensive content strategy for support and user interface content for Office across mobile platforms (iOS, Android, Win Phone). Prior to this, Mona was with Mediaocean as a Product Manager. In this role, she initiated the practice of UI design reviews and created editorial guidelines for developers. A common theme in her professional life is that she can often see what's happening (or not happening) that interferes with a team's ability to be its best; lack of collaboration, excessive reliance on the status quo, processes that should or shouldn't exist, and can present solutions that all involved can endorse. Mona is at her best working on products with talented multi-disciplinary teams that are obsessed with their customers.
