Deb Kichline, Certified ABAA Auditor, ABAA Board of Directors and Chairman of the Quality Assurance Program Committee

How long have you been on the Board of Directors and what’s your current position?

I was just elected to the board as a director at the last convention in Orlando.

What made you want to be a part of ABAA?

I had been working to inspect existing structures since 2001 and been involved with energy audits.  When I was asked to attend the ABAA auditor training it seemed like a logical step to take.

What city do you currently live in & where is the farthest place you’ve travelled to?

My current residence is in Cincinnati, Ohio but I grew up in England.  Last summer my son and I took two "Epic" road trips and covered over 7,000 miles and 23 states in as many days.  

What was your favorite TV Show and band while you were growing up?

The Carol Burnett Show was always a favorite when I was growing up.  My favorite music was anything my Dad was NOT listening to and the louder, the better.                                                              

What is one of the least intelligent things you have done and then wondered “What was I thinking?!”

The least intelligent thing I have ever done was to ride the Big Shot on top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas.  Exceptionally bad idea!

What are you most excited about with regards to ABAA’s future?

I am looking forward to educating construction professionals about the benefits of air barriers and promoting the benefits of ABAA's Quality Assurance Program.
