Julie Schwab, R.N. and George Beckett both join us from a consulting and software firm, where George served as Chief of Business Development and Julie was the Clinical Director. Each have more than 30 years of experience in healthcare and health IT.

Julie also served as North Dakota’s State Medicaid Director during planning and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
