She admits that she would be a terrible health care worker. If you want to make her day, cook her good food and clean the dishes. She has never kept a New Year’s resolution but she could give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation on the benefits and logistics of small-scale local food operations. She will NEVER go on a road trip with a dog and a cat again and her dream car is a Pagani Zonda. And PLEASE people, stop asking her when she is getting married! She spends her days at CodeWeavers discovering and recording where CrossOver breaks — introducing Anna Lasky, one of our Quality Assurance Engineers!
In her own words: I am a small-scale farm-hand turned software tester enjoying the comforts provided by making a living while staying indoors. I studied and practiced alternative farming while majoring in Anthropology at the University of Chicago. I moved to the Twin Cities for the Minnesota kindness and cold weather, and I have not been disappointed.
