My name is Debbie Meeks and the current Healthcare Division Chair. I am a Senior member of ASQ and have held various positions in both the Healthcare Division and the local ASQ section (Tidewater - 1128). I am the Quality Manager of Laboratory Services for a growing healthcare system in Virginia/NC. I have acquired a Masters degree in Quality Management (EMU), CQA and CMQ/OE (ASQ), and CPCO (AAPC). I am a life long learner and one reason why I appreciate ASQ - I am both amazed and humbled by the amount of experience and knowledge that I am surrounded with at ASQ.
This week I have celebrated my 30th wedding anniversary. Thanks to COVID, celebrating at home vs on a River Cruise on the Columbian River (there's always next year...right?). I have two adult children and an old dachshund forever puppy. Before COVID and the closing of gyms, I discovered a new appreciation for circuit training...I have a long way to go to be in shape but looking forward to the day the gym re-opens their doors.
Working in Healthcare is just amazing

My name is Sabrina Nunez. I work for Trustbridge Hospice in South Florida, in the Operational Excellence department, where I'm the OPEX Analyst. I manage all the performance improvement projects within the organization, regulatory reporting, and pave the way for a problem solving culture by training all employees on lean six sigma tools. I obtained my MBA from Florida Atlantic University, hold a Green Belt, and am currently studying for the CPHQ. Like many others, my job has changed a bit due to the pandemic.
