“As a product quality specialist, my job involves quite a bit of travel as I fly to airports all across the southeast to support quality inspections of transportation security equipment. It’s certainly a bit of a different experience with COVID as some of the perks of being on travel – like eating out at new restaurants has been limited – but we’re making sure our team is staying safe while still doing what we need to do to ensure quality is maintained to TSA’s standards. I got my start as an electrical engineer and then found myself working with one of OEMs making transportation security equipment. My time there from being a field service technician to trainer has given me a lot of depth in understanding how this equipment is built, operates, and been essential in enabling my transition to the quality side of the house. When I am not traveling for work, I am home with my wife and our son in our little farm town tinkering with cars or electronics.”
