Movie-theater popcorn lover | Marathon runner | QA Practice Lead
For Heizel, quality assurance (QA) is the ideal combination of tackling fresh challenges around every corner, flexing her master’s-degree-backed and PMP-certified project management skills, building strong working relationships across large, dispersed, and diverse teams, and being of service to clients and colleagues alike. With more than 12 years in the field, Heizel’s accomplishments include building QA processes from the ground up, creating QA automation strategies, and working closely with clients to identify which processes and tools best support their work cultures and goals.
As QA Practice Lead, Heizel mentors Gorilla Logic quality engineers, sharing best practices and emerging technologies and trends to support the goal of becoming faster and better at delivering continuous business value. Heizel aims to inspire her colleagues with her own career journey, from discovering a special focus area in QA to becoming an expert and leader in the field.
Going to the movies may be one of Heizel’s favorite activities when she’s not at work. She loves rom-coms, but loves movie-theater popcorn even more. With experience as a triathlete in the past, Heizel has recently shifted her focus to running marathons. And she loves spending time with her family or going on outings to the beach or mountains with her two dogs.
