Hello! I've been in the Software Quality field for 20 years now and a manager/director for over 10. I've worked for small and large companies in various industries, from Advertising to gaming, to personal finance, to security, to search and publishing. My areas of expertise are building teams, reorgs/change management, personal growth, process improvements, managing up (and down), motivation, and more. I currently work for Quicken, a personal finance management solution company with a 30 years old history. It employs amazing people, still has a start up culture with benefits of maturity, and forward thinking leadership. Happy to be a part of this group and share the knowledge!
