Awards and Achievements

QA in the Code

At MacPractice I was the very first QA to fix bugs, run static analyst, get my name in the Developer box. As Team lead I created trainings that would help my fellow QA learn. I brought in new practices and worked with my manager on a roadmap to move QA forward into the future. I even had a Blog at that time with over 1000 followers called QA Hipster for manual testers. Since then I have moved the blog to this site.

Automation at MacPractice

While working towards that future the company started moving to the web and with that I began automation. I started automation by testing the APIs using Postman and Newman. From there I moved to Automating the UI with Selenium, Cucumber, Serenity, and Java. You can check out my portfolio
