My name is Meriem Touami. I’m an Atlas Corps Fellow serving at boodle as a Business Analyst since July 2019. I have a background in computer science and four years of professional experience in IT project management, Information System management and IT and Business Analysis. I’m eager to learn, enjoy solving problems and finding unique and innovative ways of solving them using technology. I’m passionate about Information Systems, enterprise architecture, data and evolving technologies.
At boodleAI, I support the software development team by assisting in the identification of incoming features that are valuable to the business and their clients through data analysis, gathering and analyzing high level requirements, tracking sprint progress and elevating risks to management, creating and maintaining project documentation, defining and executing test scenarios, and participating in all Agile ceremonies.
I love being outdoors, hiking and rock climbing. I’m a nature girl and nature has a way of surprising a person. Take the words of a passionate hiker, whose mind takes refuge in mountains, for it!
When I take a break from my computer, and I’m not wandering in the mountains; I volunteer to teach Arabic and French and help the elderly with several NGOs in DC.
I also enjoy sipping coffee with my obese and lazy cat. He’s adorable but can’t risk showing much love. He’s the neighborhood mob boss and can’t put his reputation at stake. Understandable.
