PNW Section Member Awards 2021

Advancement of Active Military and Veterans in NDT Recognition

The 2021 award went to Megan Davey of the Pacific Nortwest section and Clover Park Technical College.
The Advancement of Active Military and Veterans in NDT Recognition is presented to an ASNT member who encourages Active Military and Veterans to enter and thrive in the field of NDT. The recognition is earned either through the creation and implementation of educational and career advancement programs or by leading by example to show Active Military and Veterans that they can have a career in NDT and significantly contribute to NDT and ASNT and to creating a safer world. In 2021 the award was to Megan Davey of the Pacific Northwest section.
Megan Davey is currently a tenure track NDT instructor at Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) where she teaches radiography, eddy current, and ultrasound. She also serves on the ASNT Pacific NW Section Board of Director as the Educational Chair and the David Hall Student Scholarship Chair. During her time at CPTC, she has revamped the RT program to include digital x-ray and phased array will soon be included in the program. She is making connections across Washington State to ensure that employers know that when they hire CPTC graduates, they will receive the best trained NDT personnel.
Megan served honorably in the United States Air Force (USAF) for 6 years until medically retired. While stationed abroad at the Royal Air Force base in Mildenhall, UK and at Holloman AFB in New Mexico, she gained valuable experience in all 5 NDT methods. She specialized on the F-22 Raptor program where she became the lead trainer. Megan then took a civilian position at Fort Lewis as the Responsible Level III for the pacific region of the company to include Hawaii, Guam, and South America. Megan was a sought- after expert for her NDT knowledge in military and non-military operations and this often required her to travel at a moment’s notice across the world. She identified deficiencies within the standard operating procedures and helped re-write comprehensive compliance programs. She implemented policies that reflected the SNT-TC-1A, NAS-410, and AS9100 standards to maintain integrity within the company. While working full time, she also attained a master’s degree in Healthcare Administration. Megan worked for 3 years in healthcare where she led quality rapid improvement programs and created multiple scheduling programs for doctors and nurses at Kaiser Permanente. However, she soon discovered that her true passion was still NDT and she decided to give back to the NDT community by teaching.
