New to ASQ - San Diego

Hello ASQ Community,

I am new to the site and a first time ASQ Professional Member. I am interested in finding a mentor, I would love to have a conversation and learn what all ASQ has to offer!

A bit about me…

I am a San Diegan, Quality Specialist with 3 years of experience in Quality Management. I have an additional 4 years of related Dental experience as an Office Manager and Lead Dental Assistant.

I have a diverse background in managing processes such as Corrective Action and Preventive Actions (CAPA), document control, calibration and preventive maintenance, and auditing. I have experience supporting company-wide Quality Management System (QMS) projects involving certification, harmonization and simplification.

I have cross-industry experience in Medical Devices, Aerospace, Computer Hardware & Systems, Metal Finishing, and Dentistry.

What I like most about Quality is that it is both static and dynamic across all industries. Static constitutes basic standards, whereas dynamic quality is a culture. I can attribute my unique skill set to the various best practices and quality approaches I have learned and integrated over the years.

I look forward to getting to know you, Happy Friday :)

Hello again @Trish Borzon,

I filled out the mentee application on Monday, November 8th. When should I expect to hear back from someone? What are the next steps?

I apologize if I am jumping the gun!
