Violet Skinner

Product Manager, Technologist, Dreamer

I'm a personable person with personality whose eye is always beyond the goal. A hustler on the inside, business person on the outside, I work to get the job done. No goal is too lofty, no idea is too creative, and no project is too big. With over one billion dollars worth of successful projects under my belt, I'm not the woman, to mess with. I seek to bring my tenacity and perseverance to your organization to make sure that the work gets done.
