    QA Manager / Freelance Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 9

    As a multi-faceted individual, I'm skilled in both software QA and writing, rewriting, editing, and proofreading. I'm venturing from full-time office work into a full-time work-at-home freelancer. My desires are to find and keep quality clients, and expand my skills and experience by providing them with quality work, while still having fun. My specialties in Software QA include Agile, manual testing, test management, requirements review, and end-to-end functional testing - including database verification, something I have a particular fondness for. When it comes to writing, I have a vast array of interesting experiences to draw from and specialize in travel, technical, or adventure articles, research, and creative writing. I fully research any topic that I'm not familiar with, as well as many that I am familiar with. I'm a writer and the content administrator for scubadiverlife.com, a popular diving site.

    Learning and translating all the time.

    Mexico - Portfolio: 1

    I was an English and French teacher for over ten years. I worked on academic magazines, as a freelancer, writing on very diverse subjects, from Comunication to Psychology... I love languages, I even met my french husband speaking just French and English, despite the fact that I'm Mexican and my first language is Spanish. I'd love to keep conquering interesting challenges, writing and most of all, learning. Each job, each new employer, represents a challenge, and I think, there's no better way of learning than challenging yourself. These past months working as a freelancer here in elance, I've also refined my skills in SEO and SEO writing. As I've said, I love the journey.
