I began my Lawson career in 1997 working for Ciber as a consultant. I was thoroughly trained and provided programming development and support for several implementations and upgrades. I was also the technical lead on many projects and wrote technical designs for other consultants. I worked for 12 years at Northeast Georgia Medical Center as the Lawson/Unix expert where I wrote and supported over 100 custom reports, interfaces, and utility programs. I specialized in integration for NGHS, and kept Lawson interfaced with over 70 different systems and vendors. I began working at Athens Regional Medical Center in 2013 as the project manager and technical lead for their Lawson implementation that went live January 2014. In addition to managing the project team, I wrote many conversion programs and interfaces for Lawson. I helped train users and technical staff as well.
