I started my career as a mathematician and software developer. While working as a developer, my passion for delivering quality products really began to shine brighter. As a result of my advocacy for the end users and code quality, it was suggested that I become the first software tester for the team. Springboarded by my passion for quality and wanting to do a good job as the first and only tester in the company, I began to get more and more involved with the software testing community to help me learn everything I could to shine in this role. After spending 5 years as a community manager with Ministry of Testing, I moved again but this time returning to a role that gave me the opportunity to be a hands-on software tester.
