Evie and I worked together at Booking.com when she was just a product owner and I was a contractor working on the car rental aspect of the site. Since I left Booking, Evie has risen to become a senior product owner in spite of the rough year that COVID wrought upon the company.
Evie talks about her route into Booking.com and her fascination for both technology and travel. We spoke a little bit about diversity in tech and how there is a noticeable lack of female leaders to use for inspiration and advice.
Evie posts fairly regularly about her efforts to reflect and to keep herself mentally fit. We go into some detail on this topic and chat about things we’ve both struggled with and strategies we’ve found that have worked well during 2020, particularly for her living on her own.
