Hello! I’m Hallie Newman, a Philly-based Project Manager, certified Scrum Master and Product Owner, avid cook & baker, knitter, and mom. I’ve been with Pantheon for almost four months, where I work with the Professional Services team to support and project manage our bigger engagements to ensure our customers are set up for success on the platform.
In a previous life, I lived in Brooklyn and worked in the nonprofit world, focusing on marketing and administration. Several years ago, when I burnt out on both the hustle of NYC-living and nonprofit work, I took a leap to the middle of the country where I started working in St. Louis as a Project Manager at a software development shop called Lelander, with exactly zero technical experience. A trusting manager and a dose of self-confidence propelled me into the tech world, where I proved to myself that good project management is often no different than dealing with a sinkful of dirty dishes: Process is crucial, and when you approach it piece-by-piece, it’s actually quite manageable. Also relationships are key. Okay… so my dirty dishes analogy doesn’t quite hold up, but you see where I’m going with this, yes?
When I’m not managing projects with my wonderful Pantheon team, I am probably watching my omg-how-is-she-almost-1-year-old? daughter grab her 50 lb pitbull brother, Frankly #like&subscribe, by the jowls; knitting a new hat or shawl; baking bread, or cooking up a feast from my food-stained Modern Jewish Cooking, or my new favorite cookbook: Falastin.
Go ahead, ask me, and Frankly in a Pantheon t-shirt, anything!
