Proggio’s Employee Spotlight: Alice

Let’s get to know Proggio’s QA Manager– Alice Goland

A little bit about Alice:

I’m a heavy metal junkie who loves to travel, run, and Netflix and chill. I started reading Harry Potter at age of 32 (!). I’m a marathon runner, and the only thing keeping me from iron man is the fact that I don’t know how to swim!
