Work experience

Aravo Solutions, Director, QA
January 2009 - Present, San Francisco, CA, United States
I was the first employee to lead the Quality Assurance efforts at Aravo. I started by bringing on a new QA/Testing partner and also implementing the Agile/Scrum process across Product Development in 2009. * Starting in April 2009, took 3 months to analyze and implement the Agile/Scrum process. * Aravo went live with the Agile/Scrum process in July 2009. Since then I've acted as a Scrum coach. I've also come off and on various scrum teams in that time in the QA role.
