Service Description

14 years cumulative QA testing experience in commercial and government software development environments. As a lead Sr. SQA Engineer (with Sage Software) and Test Analyst (with VetsAmerica Consulting) stakeholders relied on me for in-depth testing and business analysis results. The personable and technical skills refined over my career can be a positive attribute to any fast paced testing environment.
When supporting the U.S. Veterans Administration's forty three million dollar software upgrade, my responsibilities as a Test Analyst include requirements analysis, test case development, user acceptance test management and comprehensive manual/automated testing.
Being with Sage Software for well over a decade, I have qualified many timely software releases. The valuable lessons learned during these software development life cycles are essential when planning and executing future testing strategies. I have vetted effective methods which can be utilized as actionable items for requirements decomposition, QA testing and customer support.
