Jaelin Rios: November 2022 Consultant Spotlight

Senior Project Management Associate III

I graduated from Augsburg University in May 2020, where I received my B.A. in Marketing with a minor in Spanish. As of October 2022, I’ve been with Crew for 2 years.

My team at Allianz Life is currently working on a hardware transformation initiative where I scope, test, and plan the deployment of new devices. We are the connecting point between the product’s developers and end users. My end goal is to deliver a product that aligns with the vision of Allianz’s global product owner, while upholding corporate policies and a friendly user experience.

I’ve had the opportunity to take a variety of training sessions at Crew. One of my favorites was Authentic Leadership, led by the Yarbrough group.

Bonnie makes all aspects of PM’ing seem digestible and attainable! I learned so many project management tactics that I can easily apply to my current and future projects.
