Director Quality Management Programs ValueCentric, LLCSoftware Testing Department and Quality Department


I have more than 20 years of professional experience encompassing a variety of technical disciplines and I currently serve as the Director of Quality Management Programs for ValueCentric LLC. My years of diverse experience has come together that includes software programming, testing, business analysis, program assessment and implementation. I currently lead the company’s Software Testing Department and oversee the company’s strategic Quality programs and roadmaps. I strongly believe that everyone has a role in Quality and that Quality is not a department or a job description.

I am passionate about testing and am always looking for creative ways to train Testers and develop their careers.  I like to draw upon practices in the context-driven and agile theories and methodologies to guide foundational efforts. In particular I enjoy exploratory testing and solving difficult testing problems. Reading blogs, connecting through social media, and viewing webinars are favorite activities as continual learning and challenging your skills is important in the Testing field.
