Bio: Quality Assurance (QA) is a demanding discipline that can show value throughout an entire organization. Explicitly and implicitly can drive out, not only improvements in any Software Delivery Life Cycle (SDLC), it can also provide a mechanism to improve processes across the enterprise and create an environment of innovation and collaboration. As Director of Quality Assurance I oversee QA efforts for large programs, manage QA processes, work with all stakeholders reliant on QA initiatives and collaborate with internal and external strategic partners to develop efficient plans for upcoming changes. I am very passionate about QA, whether it is speaking at conferences or over a cup of coffee, I enjoy discussions of how this discipline provides great value to an organization. My goals are to improve the visibility and the value the QA discipline can bring to organizations to achieve my vision of making organizations great.
