With a strong foundation in software testing, I have been honing my Agile team member skills by contributing to the team in a number of roles. I have been a scrum master, coach, product owner and tester within Agile teams. I have also led testing and development teams in both traditional environments as well as those transitioning to Agile.
I have been very active in the local testing community as a board member for the Kitchener-Waterloo Software Quality Association (KWSQA) for the past 8 years. In this role I have been actively involved in organizing our annual software testing conference. As well I am the coordinator of the KWSQA Testing Games (where we pair professional testers with a local start-up for an evening of testing, fun and skills development).
In the past, I have presented on a variety of topics - ranging from test automation to mentorship.
