I enjoy the challenges that the software testing profession provides.  I’m not sure that I would declare myself a ‘Master’ of software testing because with the ever-changing technology landscape, there’s always something new to learn and adapt to for testing.  Areas that I continue to learn and grow in are Agile, Lean, social media, mobile testing, and web testing.

I feel confident enough in what I know to help others expand their knowledge and skills.  I’ve created and delivered numerous presentations and continue to grow courseware in the software quality assurance and testing realms for BenchmarkQA.  I also enjoy consulting work and find that the real world experience helps to ‘keep it real’ in the classroom.
