About me

I'm a whirlwind of enthusiasm for quality, agility and humans. I started out in testing and had an interesting and varied career as a product owner, consultant and team leader before becoming a part of the management team at the beginning of 2020. I now spend my time communicating with people! A typical week involves working with customers, teaching and coaching testers and developers about quality, being an agile leader, working on strategy and developing my team to fulfill their potential. I keep up to date on my favourite topics by supporting and consulting for teams and customers. I'm a frequent speaker and keynote speaker at conferences about agility and quality from my experiences in projects and with customers, and I was awarded the Most Influential Agile Testing Professional Person award in 2018. In my free time I love doing sports, playing music and being an auntie. I describe myself as an explorer and I love discovering places, cultures, perspectives and people.
