"This certification is a testament to Meagan's dedication to her work and her clients," said Brian Staats, CPA, managing partner at ABBB.  "We extend a warm, sincere congratulations on her achievement."

To earn this certification, participants attend a week long training session to learn the principles of Lean Six Sigma and apply them in simulations.  The participants are then required to facilitate a project at their workplace utilizing the concepts, techniques and project tools applicable to Lean Six Sigma. 

These project tools are submitted to a certified Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt and graded, to ensure the concepts are being properly applied.  Once approved by the Master Black Belt, the certification process is complete.  Wellbrock selected the project of the Individual Tax Return process for her certification requirements.
