78: Dr. Lisa Walters
Cut the BULL$H!# Rant: The Problem with “That’s Not My Problem”
Today’s guest is Lisa Walters MT(ASCP)SBB, CQA (ASQ), MBA, PhD. She has extensive experience in cGxP auditing and consulting, including medical labs, transfusion services, tissue banking, plasma collection, and blood services. She’s a faculty member of State University of New York at Fredonia and Penn State-Erie, Center for Continuing Education. She was the principal of Healthy Solutions Consulting and began her career in Quality Assurance with the American Red Cross. She’s also a published author.
Full disclosure, Dave has known Lisa since first grade…where he gave her the nickname Ziggi.
Lisa went into the field of medical technology and wanted to specialize in blood banking. As she says, “If you can secrete it, I can test it.”
She moved into quality management for the Red Cross, then soon after opened a consulting firm in an effort to “keep her hands bloody in her work.”
Zig’s Example of BS in the Work Place: Working in silos. Let’s focus on the solution.
Our conversation with Dr. Lisa Walters will continue on Thursday, June 23.
