In the works


Yashika is a young professional that has recently begun her Agile journey. Before going into Agile, she graduated with a Degree in Fashion and was a retail buyer for a well established and beloved South African Retail Megahouse for 6 years.
She is currently an Agile coach for a South African insurance company, but started her Agile journey at the start of 2021 through a small start up, which then gave her way to her current position and has been using the Agile ways ever since.
She is always eager to learn and pursue new ways of incorporating Agile and Teal in her workplace as well as in her personal capacity.
