Terri Eccles is our owner, head consultant, instructor, and coach.
She found product management early and built a career on adapting,
learning and thinking critically and creatively.
She was Director of Digital Product at Capital One and the Director of
Digital Web at Premera, leading large cross-functional teams building
disruptive products in highly complex industries.
She loves bringing people together to reimagine and build products that are deeply impactful on people’s lives.
Planning to take a short break from corporate, Terri worked with startups, got certified as a coach, and taught product at General Assembly.
She realized regardless of company size, the same set of skills were required to lead teams to create compelling strategy.
She saw a gap. Lots of people were consulting on product, strategy, and leadership but no one was doing it together - especially not for complex industries (finance, healthcare, government) where it was needed most.
Virago Labs was born.
Rosie Olaivar joined Virago Labs in the summer of 2018 to help with a
large startup client and the development of Virago’s first course.
Her passion for design and tech support her dual role as Product Analyst
and User Experience Designer.
Her work brings together her degree in anthropology, her experience
teaching english overseas, and her software engineering studies.
She uses her past teaching experience to help Virago design experiential
and evolving curriculum.
