It’s been richly rewarding experience living in Silicon Valley for the last year and a half, but due to various factors I’ve decided to head back home to Australia and take some time off work to focus on my health and spend time with my family. I’ll be based in Brisbane for the most part, with regular trips to Rockhampton to hang out with my parents and cats.
So I won’t be committing to any conferences or similar for the time being. I’m taking a leave of absence from Google and I’ll keep you posted on what city I end up in once I figure that out.
I know I mentioned health reasons but I don’t want anyone worrying about me or sending me messages of sympathy. All in all, in Australia with my family is exactly where I want to be right now and I’m looking forward to it.
Does this mean you may have some capacity for Sydney testers?
Hi Samantha, this will depend if I end up moving to Sydney or not. At this stage I am still in Queensland, tackling some health issues, and haven’t yet decided if I will move to Sydney when I go back to work. But if I do end up in Sydney, I would love to be involved with Sydney tester meetups again.
