We’re a team of expert product managers backed by seasoned leaders with decades of experience building innovative digital products in top tech markets. We are women-founded, growth-focused, and results-oriented.
We first met while working at a mid-sized start-up in LA back in 2008 and instantly connected. We worked seamlessly together, complimenting each other’s strengths and weaknesses and building some very successful teams and products in the years that followed. We also became good friends and did some cool stuff together, like jumping out of a plane and hanging out with turtles on the beach in Costa Rica.
Since then, we’ve worked together at 6 more companies in both FTE and consulting capacities. We continued to see and experience the challenges organizations of all sized & stages faced in hiring and retaining great product talent. We started to notice trends...
Some companies were small or not tech-focused, so they didn't understand what role a great product manager should play. Others were too big for their own good, and they didn't foster an environment where the valuable functions of product management contribute meaningfully to the business (too many cooks in the kitchen scenario). Many had great product leaders, but poor company culture or environments where work-life balance was lacking and burnout was a common theme. Low morale, high turnover, knowledge gaps, inefficiency, and high costs were just a few of the negative impacts we observed.
In the post-COVID job market, things have changed, people have changed, and priorities have changed. It's no longer about where you’re located or just the numbers in an offer letter. People can be more selective about where they work, and they want to be part of exciting, healthy companies with positive culture and leadership. We recognized these emerging trends & shifting priorities, and saw a way to help solve the challenges that both companies and product managers faced. We created a better, more flexible way for companies to get the specific product support they need, when and for as long as they need it, without the time & cost associated with in-house hiring. We also wanted to help product managers find exciting & rewarding work, provide them with leadership & a supportive team, and facilitate a culture where they can create balance & enjoyment in their careers. Thus, The Product Consult was born. We might be biased, but we think we’re really on to something big here.
We do product differently (and better). We provide a collaborative & supportive environment for product managers of all experience levels to do their best work, for a variety of clients, all while enjoying ourselves and being less stressed.

"TPC allows me to do the work I love with the flexibility I want. The model has been flipped on its head - great product people CAN be super effective for clients in short term engagements, building the next great release or defining a client's product strategy and roadmap. I've had a long career, and never worked with this caliber of talent. We're all rock-stars and the caring, supportive environment lifts us up and makes us better"
“Consulting through TPC gives me the flexibility of freelance with the security and camaraderie of a larger team. I'm grateful for the path it's given me back to the product management career I love, while maintaining the freedom to prioritize time away with my family when the need arises. I also appreciate that these engagements are structured so I can make huge contributions to a company in part time hours.”
“Working with everyone at TPC has been such a great fit for me. Since joining their team, I've gotten the opportunity to do game changing work with amazing startups while also coaching and collaborating with other PMs. I wasn’t quite sure how impactful my role could be in a consulting capacity, but it turns out, when you approach it as intentionally as the TPC team does, it can move mountains.”
