TACOMA, Wash. – Sprague Pest Solutions announced the promotion of Ashley Roden, B.C.E., to QA and technical manager. She most recently worked as technical manager before adding responsibility over Sprague’s in-house QA team.
Sprague’s team of dedicated independent QA auditors work closely with the company’s pest management teams across 19 branch offices to protect food-processing and other audited clients. With extensive experience working in the field, Sprague QA auditors are a valuable resource. Clients routinely partner with the Sprague QA team as they prepare and undergo third-party and government audits and inspections and maintain a state of audit readiness.
Roden started with Sprague in 2013 as a route manager in the Seattle branch working on multiple high profile accounts including Sea-Tac Airport. She moved into Sprague’s technical department working as a regional entomologist. She is responsible for creating and leading Sprague’s innovative corporate training programs.
A native of Montana, Roden grew up in Georgia and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in environmental health and entomology from University of Georgia. She is a member of the Pi Chi Omega professional fraternity and the Urban Pest Management Technical Committee.
Joining the Sprague technical team as a regional entomologist is Edna Alfaro Inocente. Inocente, who will work out of Sprague’s Denver office, holds a Master of Science in entomology from Ohio State University and a Bachelor of Sciences in food science and technology from Escuela Agricola Panamericana, Zamorano in Honduras.
A member of the Entomological Society of America, Inocente most recently served as a visiting scientific specialist at University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. A native of El Salvador, Inocente has had numerous articles on her research on mosquitoes published.
“Ashley’s promotion and the addition of Edna to our technical team reflects Sprague’s commitment to further its QA and technical capacity and offer yet another valuable benefit to our growing client base across the Western United States,” said Ross Treleven, president, Sprague Pest Solutions.
