Hi, I’m Karen Nicole Johnson.

I am an IT professional with experience in fast-paced environments. I am experienced in both startup and large corporate environments as well with teams located onshore, offshore and a blend of onsite/offshore. I help organizations and teams create high quality software.

Over the course of my career I have focused on software testing and I am well-known in the software testing community, but in the past eight years working as a solo consultant, I have acquired practical business and organizational acumen. I often assist and am hired by senior executives (Directors, VPs, and CTOs) who want to improve quality in their organizations (but are not typically sure how to go about doing that). I work “on the ground” with teams and individuals, by advising and mentoring.

As of 2017, I am employed at Jamf .

My opinions expressed on my website are my own personal views.
