ABKaelin LLC will provide outsourced quality assurance, auditing and consulting services to the protective coatings, construction, fabrication and nuclear industries.

Kaelin plans to use her experience to provide independent quality assurance support and auditing services related to compliance with 10 CFR 50, Appendix B and ASME NQA-1.

  • Client-specific training; and
  • Environmental, Health and Safety training.

ABKaelin LLC is headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, and is in the process of obtaining certification as a woman-owned business enterprise. That certification should be completed later in 2013.

Experience, Awards

With more than 25 years of experience, Kaelin most recently worked as the Environmental, Health and Safety Manager and Quality Assurance Manger for KTA-Tator Inc. in Pittsburgh, PA. Before joining KTA, Kaelin worked for the Allegheny County Health Department Division of Air Quality.

Kaelin holds civil and environmental engineer degrees from Vanderbilt University and has extensive knowledge of ambient monitoring, VOC and other regulations that affect coatings work.

She was also the primary technical editor and instructor of the SSPC-C3 course, Lead Paint Removal.
