Founder of The Bulldog Companies USA (10 years) - IT Consultants UNLEASHED! I want to be thoroughly worn out before I am dumped on the scrap heap; a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making me happy.

Katie Weinmann

 

Avid cycling enthusiast and always on the go!  When I’m not spending time at the office as a Technical Recruiter, or volunteering with TCQAA, I am outside enjoying everything that mother nature has to offer.  My professional passion is Technical Recruiting, which I have been doing for just about 5 years and have loved every minute of it.  There is no better reward than helping someone find the job of their dreams or knowing that you have positively impacted their life and career goals.  Never a dull moment and I wouldn’t have it any other way, which is the reason why I joined the TCQAA as the Membership Chair- bringing people together who share the same passions.           

Melissa Stone 

I have been in the software testing field for 18 years doing mostly manual testing, but am now getting started on Agile methodologies and learning Selenium. On the TCQAA front, I've been involved in the organization for the last 12 years serving in various roles such as member of the Program Committee, Treasurer and VP/President. I continue to be involved in TCQAA as a way to gain and spread knowledge of the crucial role we play in the software development field.

Molly Doyle

 

I have worked in the quality assurance consulting services arena for more than 15 years.  As the Sr. VP of BenchmarkQA, I had the joy of working closely with clients to help them improve their overall quality program.  I developed an in depth understanding of the broad range of challenges businesses face in getting a quality product to market on time.  Now in my role as an Account Executive with Trissential-SQS, I help my clients develop greater business agility and performance through innovative services and world class quality.  I am so glad to serve on the TCQAA board – to have the opportunity to assist in bringing together local professionals and providing information to the QA community during this time of exciting, disruptive and dynamic change.  I am also a Mom of 2 awesome boys and I love biking, tennis, skiing, random road trips, and making the most out of every day!
