Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Lia Keston

Who are you?

I’m a Consultant in the Modern Apps Domain (Joint DOD space) and I’ve been in Software Development for almost 25 years.  I enjoy solving “unsolvable” problems for my customers and I’m rewarded by seeing the tangible value that software solutions bring to them.  Outside of work, I spend my time with my husband in beautiful Charleston, SC.  I love the outdoors, bird watching, tennis, boxing, and of course - my rescue dogs.  Many of my toughest coding challenges have been solved while clearing my head on a long walk with the beagles!

What makes you “tick”?

I especially enjoy the artistic side of software development – the creativity involved in taking a solution from an idea to delivery.  I have a competitive spirit, and so I continuously challenge myself both professionally and personally - stretching my comfort zone and trying new things.

Where do you live?

Although I’m originally from Virginia, I’ve lived in Johns Island, SC (outside of Charleston) for about 5 years.  I love South Carolina and can’t imagine living anywhere else!
