Good Morning!
I am a consultant for QMS evaluation; ISO9001 & 14001 are my areas of expertise. I would be glad to review your QMS remotely as a start, and then on site. 
This is similar to a pre-certification assessment. You can see my profile on LinkedIn:
I am a certified lead auditor and have been the QMS Management rep, developing ISO compliant QMS's for manufacturing in automotive, consumer electronics, military and power grid support manufacturing operations. I would be glad to send my resume directly to you.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Cassandra,

There are many people who can help you do exactly what you need.
May I offer my experience, for how to choose someone.
First, make sure they are a Lead Auditor who is certified and currently working for a Certification Body.  Certification Bodies work hard to calibrate their auditors.  A person who functions in Lead Audits knows what Third Party Auditors expect.
Secondly, ask for recommendations at your local ASQ section.  

Also you may want to look at  Their are free videos, free documents for your use and they will answer your questions.  Give a call, 229-798-0277.

Remote reviews of your documentation using GoToMeeting are available at Cornerstone..

Best Blessings to You and Yours as Your Pursue assistance,

I would recommend Diane Kulisek, 805-522-5005. I've known her for a few years now and think quite highly of her. I don't know if she is available, you'll have to check.
