I'm a quality enthusiast with more than 10 years' experience in guiding people and projects toward better results.
I came to software development in 2018 out of interest for UX design and human and computer interaction, and I've never looked back.
My goal is to equip product owners, stakeholders, and development teams with the tools, processes, and perspectives to deliver on good quality for their users. All while not sacrificing things like efficiency, creativity, innovation, and common sense.
Talk to me about the annals of exploratory heuristics, retrospective workshops, sensible automation, and effective language in bugs and tickets.
Oh, and I love to test :)

Nice things people had to say
Lead QA Engineer
I had the pleasure of managing Kelly while she was still a junior quality assurance analyst and software developer while working as the Lead QA at Comgy GmbH, a role Kelly eventually succeeded me in.
Kelly proved herself to be an adept and fast learner, a trait which did not diminish her thorough and holistic approach to the field of QA. Kelly was well respected by her peers and continued to challenge not only her own conceptions and approach to software development and internal processes, but indeed my own approach to these same topics. I am not at all surprised to see that Kelly remained on and continued to be promoted after I left considering all of her immense work output, dynamic approach to problem-solving, and excellent communication and people handling skills.
I would not hesitate to indeed hire or work with Kelly again and would recommend her for any process, QA, or software development role without hesitation!

Kelly Miller produces excellent, high-quality work and is for this reason most warmly recommended. In my many years of professional experience with publishing, I have had the chance to work with many editors. I would count Ms. Miller among the very best.
