    A huge thank you to Atul for setting up this site. I know that some of us were feeling a little 'homeless' when our previous online water cooler was removed. I look forward to seeing this site grow with the same amazing group of people and wonderful new contributors.

    Formerly known as RCBeyette in the other virtual home, I've switched over to my first name and last initial. I will unleash my flying monkeys on anyone who incorrectly spells my name (...ahem, Andy!). *lol*

    Professionally, my background is predominantly manufacturing. I only "fell" into the world of ISO 9001 because I used 'crap' in my definition of it during an interview. I was hired on the spot. :) Over the years, Quality evolved to included Environment, Health and Safety, Financial, Lean, Analysis, Standardization, Training, Quality Tools and Project Management.

    After 15+ years of ink, buses and steel, I dabbled briefly in the financial sector before landing a gig in healthcare. I've been working for a not-for-profit organization that is mainly community care (i.e., we care for patients once they are home from the hospital) for 3.5 years.

    While the work environment is certainly different than manufacturing - I miss the smell of steel in the morning! - my skills, experiences and passions are still used and challenged as a member of the organization's Operations Innovation team.

    Aha! Darth Roxy enters the fray, and about time too. What took you so long? ;)
    Now, why does that not surprise me? :D

    Claes, you mean that you're not surprised that I was hired on the spot, right? *lol*

    As for what took me so long, technical issues are strong in this one. ;-)

    I am more than confident you should probably do this to Andy anyway. After all.... he's a Detroit Lions fan.

    :D:p

    Great to see you here, Roxane. You were a massive help under the old lighthouse.

    Staying put? If you mean professionally, the only response I can provide is "...for now." ;-)

    Thank you, Jim. I like to think that the majority of the members were. Great help feeds great help, and the members usually had valuable discussions (even if opinions differed)and built upon advice, ideas and suggestions.

    You only just got a new office, so you'd better stay put for a while...

    Maybe...it's still a bugger of a commute. 4 hours a day.

    Four hours of commute! Yikes! I don't miss my daily commute but I do spend more of my nights in Hampton Inns these days than at home.
