Olga graduated from Moscow Engineering Institute with a BS in Computer Science. After immigrating with her son to New York City from Moscow in 1989, she spent her time learning English and working odd jobs. She moved to Cincinnati in 1991 and was hired by a large Cincinnati-based Software Company as a QA Software Tester where she worked for the past 23 years with a variety of different software and testing methodologies.
Olga’s testing methodology experience includes black box, white box, grey box, unit, functional, GUI, regression, and systems integration & performance testing. She also has experience in manual and automated testing in both Agile and Waterfall environments. She demonstrates a continuous effort to improve operations, reduce support cases, and decrease turnaround times.
Olga is very excited to join the Thrive team as a Senior Consultant because its purpose of bringing change to the city by reducing poverty resonates deeply with her. She currently lives in Loveland with her husband and enjoys reading books, playing a variety of computer games, and watching her favorite TV shows.
