Jenny Bramble 

Jenny came up through support and devops, cutting her teeth on that interesting role that acts as the 'translator' between customer requests from support and the development team.  Her love of support and the human side of problems lets her find a sweet spot between empathy for the user and empathy for my team.  She's done testing, support, or human interfacing for most of her career.  She finds herself happiest when she's making an impact on other people--whether it's helping find issues in applications, leading scrum, speaking at events, or just grabbing coffee and chatting.

Triangle’s Software Quality Conference

We invite you to participate in the premiere Software Testing conference and workshops of the Carolinas. Come on out and join us for a two day confirmation that testing is alive and kicking!!
