Meet Tonya Mork
Tonya is a leader, architect, engineer (software and electrical), educator, and learner. She became hooked on contributing during the 5.6 release cycle. She saw the impact the Test Team can and could have on the project. She brings her empowerment and transformational approach to help the team rebuild itself, help fuel continuous improvement, and help contributors get started, gain and grow their skills, and grow their impact.
Within the project, she served as the 5.6 and 5.7 Triage Lead, coached the 5.8 triage and test release squad, is a
Build/Test Tooling co-maintainer, and is a full-time contributor (as of February).
Outside of the project, she’s likely best known as a developer educator. She’s been leading and advising multi-disciplined engineering teams for over 3 decades in the areas of architecture, quality, testing, performance, and operations.
On the personal side, Tonya lives in a small fishing village on the NW coast of Lake Michigan in the US with her spouse (celebrated their 35th anniversary this year), dog (who thinks he’s a cat), and cat (who thinks he’s a dog and ruler of the house).
