    Need Expert Software Test Case Writer
    Dana exceeded my expectations in many ways. What started off as an expert test case writer for our software program turned into her interviewing and hiring a full time QA for us and managing that entire process which she did with minimal oversight. She was available all along the way and the quality of her work was second to none. I would highly recommend her.
