The ASQ Audit Division wants to use the MyASQ platform not only to support continuous improvement and knowledge on the subject of auditing, but to also build a stronger community.
Please use this thread to introduce yourself. We are looking forward to getting to know you more!
Social Media Chair - ASQ Audit Division
I will go first -
My name is Kristen Wagner and I am from Minnesota, AKA the Frigid North.
I started my professional career in the Ophthalmic Lens industry (ISO 9001) and eventually transitioned to Medical Device (ISO 13485) where I work as a Sr Supplier Quality Engineer, supporting Suppliers who manufacture catheters and devices that support angiograms and angioplasties. As someone who has been on a cath lab operating table myself, I love that I get to help ensure others also receive improved quality of life just as I did as a result of my procedure (cardiac ablation).
My favorite thing to do at work is auditing and supplier assessments. I love having the opportunity to confirm compliancy while also learning about different manufacturing methods and getting exposure to different cultures/countries.
I joined ASQ out of college when “Quality found me” and eventually connected with my current mentor who helped expose me to ASQ and ways to get more involved. I am currently the Social Media Chair for the Audit Division and am responsible for the Division's MyASQ Community as well as our LinkedIn.
Outside of work and ASQ, I have a strong passion for rock climbing (both indoor and outdoor) and cooking. I have 3 cats and also have a Peloton (yes, it is just like the commercials).
I look forward to learning more about all of you!
On weekends you can find me in a kayak on a lake or enjoying ice cream with my family. If we aren't connected on MyASQ, send me a friend request - we all need a network!
