“I think I’ve always been a problem solver. I love crossword puzzles and analytical types of tasks. Once I started working at Harvard Business Publishing, there were just so many great problems to solve and analytical challenges about building a new eCommerce business. My transition into the tech space was a little bit unusual, but it was being at the right place at the right time and falling in love with the work,” explained Colleen Miller, Senior Director of Product and UX at Toast.

Colleen grew up in Brighton and attended Boston College where she studied French and Psychology. She got her first job at Harvard Business Publishing working in Customer Service.

In order to tackle her new role, Colleen dedicated her free time to coding. She spent her nights learning HTML and Javascript and created the first intranet at work. She worked with a web development firm called TVisions (now Isobar) on building out the eCommerce site and learning product management.
