My professor! In the beginning, when I was studying technology, my professor helped me to learn more and get involved in Quality.

Also, engaging with a like minded team of people helps to make the ISO certification process seem easier.

I love working in a growing company, which has a lot of potential for growth professionally and personally. Also, I enjoy working with smaller teams and to help increase productivity.

How would you describe your role in one word?
