Hey! That’s me ^^^
My pronouns are she / her or they / them.
I’m a quality coach, software tester and UX enthusiast, with a past life in IT recruitment, sales and banking. I’m very passionate about all things testing and software production and have also performed the roles of product owner and business analyst.
I started this blog as a way to reflect on my own thoughts, share them with others, and learn from those who are kind enough to comment and share their own experiences with me.
I also speak at international industry conferences and events. It’s really wonderful to have audience members approach me with their feedback and stories. I love being part of the community and hope that I can inspire others to do great things.
