October Member Spotlight


Each month CHAIR recognizies the hard work of our members and shines a spotlight on their projects, accomplishments, and contributions to the community. 


This month we would like to take a moment to recognize Azadeh Zereshkian from Circuit Edge.



Circuit Edge designs and manufactures infection control devices. Its flagship product, Intelligent Sink Trap, employs patented copper ion technology to consistently disinfect the P-trap, an area prone to the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to stagnant water. The copper ion technology used actively reduces bioburden with the goal of breaking the biofilm formation cycle and reducing the risk of wash sink backsplash resulting in infection breakouts in the patient rooms.


Azadeh Zereshkian is the Vice President Operations of Circuit Edge. Azadeh specializes in providing solutions in quality issues while supervising quality and compliance teams. She has an engineering degree with an eye for process improvements.


We wanted to sit down and get to know Azadeh a little bit more and here is what we learned.


Describe yourself in three words: Creative, Cheerful, and Caring.


If you could choose one superpower, what would it be? I would like to travel in time to see how our ancestors lived and how the next generations will live.


Who are three people (alive or dead) you would like to have dinner with? 

Many talented and inspiring people come to mind; however, I would like to have dinner with Elon Musk, Isaak Asimov and Thomas Edison. I'd like to learn more about how their brilliant minds function and what they have done to get to the success they have achieved.  


If you won the lottery, what would you do first? If I win a lottery, I would clear up my debts and support organizations that help progress humanity, sustainability and equity.


What are you most excited about right now? Public health and safety is the most exciting topic for me. In particular, in recent years with the increase of different diseases and pollutants, I'd like to help solve those challenges.

What is the best advice you have ever received? The best advice I have received is to talk less and listen more and make solid connections.


What is the worst advice you have ever received? The worst advice I have ever received was that there are only special people that can get into a certain field.

What is one question you wish people would ask you more? One question I wished people would ask me more is about the newest concept/book I have learnt/read recently.


What is one question you wish people would ask you less? One question I wished people asked less, is about the latest TikTok videos.


If you could switch lives with any one person for one day, who would you choose? I would like to switch lives with an astronaut so I can experience life in outer space.


Azadeh Zereshkian is a creative, cheerful, and caring individual with a deep passion for learning, a commitment to sustainability, and a desire to explore the mysteries of time and space.
