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.
