Our Team

Donna Grindle

Owner and Senior Consultant

Donna Grindle, CHPSE, CHPC, Owner and President

Donna wrote her first computer program in 1981 and loved the challenge and concepts right away. Her 25 years experience includes programming, project management, training and titles such as Programming Manager, Customer Support Manager, Director of Operations and Vice President of Operations before becoming self-employed in 1998. Her technology skills and experience are balanced with management experience.  She has dealt with many small businesses over the years but has an extensive amount of experience in the Healthcare IT field where she has spent most of her career as an IT Consultant that specializes in private medical practices.

Donna comes from an entrepreneurial family background that required hard work and commitment growing up on a family run farm in North Georgia. The combination of work ethic learned early in life with training and experience in the real world of day-to-day business needs provides a perspective not often found in technical people or technology companies.
