About Us

QSFfoundations is a sole trader experienced at getting your management system over the line for recertification or certification purposes. I work with you to keep your management system shaped to your needs while still meeting compliance requirements for quality, safety, and facility certification purposes.

My typical client feedback is “thanks for integrating our systems into the way we do things. We didn’t like having our management system sitting parked, not quite relevant, making us feel guilty about not making it real. And thanks for being engaging, inclusive, pleasant, positive, and professional to work with.”

I passionately believe that the ISO management systems standards are successful and effective guides to your business achieving results. My task is to help you make the right tweaks so you get the results you seek in business governance, risk management, and successful quality, safety, or asset/facility certification.
