Kathy,

You provide an excellent example of what ASQ is all about - members helping members.

It is the personal connection that we make at our Sections and the thought leadership that Divisions provide that make ASQ the Society that it is.

Congratulations,
Dan
Thanks for being in our Member Spotlight!   We had a workshop where we Gemba walked a process - we were able to make some great improvements to the process because of it.  
PS - I love that you named your sons Sebastian and Atticus...great names!  
I really like the book recommendations. The leadership book once a month is a very good practice. I think i'll pick it up myself. 

Quality is now a commodity to be sold via email blasts, pop up ads, and now cyber sales by an ASQ HQ who see ASQ Members as little more that segmented target markets driven by performance metrics such as revenue per member.  Does anybody else miss the days when members helped members advance in our profession via mentoring instead of marketing?

Kathy is a great example of a quality professional and ASQ member.  I have had the opportunity to hear and speak with her as part of geographic community activities.  Congratulations on Fellow status!
