Vicky Thomas is the Product Manager at Lucid Software, makers of top-ranked productivity apps Lucidchart and Lucidpress. Upon joining Lucid in 2014, she defined the

product strategy and target market for recently launched Lucidpress, the world’s easiest design and layout app. Lucidpress has since grown to 1M+ users, with Vicky continuing to lead product definition and development.

Vicky also founded Adobe’s STEAM Team, whose events like Hour of Code and the STEM Unconference drew 2700 students, educators, executives, and legislators in their first quarter. Vicky is also an active member of the STEM Industry Investors’ Coalition, and is a two-time BYU speaker on STEM career paths. Additionally, Vicky serves as President of the MIT Club of Utah, and volunteered 140 hours in 2014 with local organizations TreeUtah, Canines with a Cause, and Kids on the Move.
