GoodRx has been like a family to me. I started as an intern while finishing grad school and never left. I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by some inspiring and talented leaders who have given me the opportunity to work on a multitude of engineering projects across the business. I’ve now come full circle, managing a team where I first started on!
