In these Anniversary Spotlights, we’re asking our tenured employees a series of questions designed to delve into their personal stories and experiences. From memorable projects that filled them with pride, to the evolution of their roles, to moments of teamwork and camaraderie that exemplify our culture. We explore the values and principles that make IntelliDyne unique, and the initiatives that have had a positive impact on our company, our people, and our clients.

Join us as we embark on this journey of reflection and celebration, honoring the people who have made IntelliDyne what it is today. Here’s to 25 years of excellence, innovation, and community —with many more to come.

Have there been any significant changes or milestones at IntelliDyne that you’ve witnessed in the 18 years you’ve been here?
There have been so many transformations that we have been a part of with the Defense Health Agency (DHA). I started at IntelliDyne in 2006 when we still had old equipment and servers and had to physically go into the server room to reboot them on maintenance weekends. We still had Exchange servers that hosted our email for all of the users. We had to have redundancy in our web and database servers for the DOD websites we supported.
I was part of the team that created the 24/7 environment for those websites and when we would have outages and weather events, we would COOP the environment out to Aurora. We kept the websites available for our users around the world who relied on those websites to be available.
When the Defense Health Headquarters (DHHQ) relocated, IntelliDyne was instrumental in building the virtual server farm to support all of DHA. We were working in the building before it was occupied by the users, not even equipped with cubicles. It is a testament to IntelliDyne that we have supported this agency for so long and I hope to have many more years with the company.

Have you seen any remarkable instances of employee growth or development during your time at IntelliDyne?
I have witnessed the growth of two individuals at IntelliDyne, Sovany Van and Kyle Benedetto. Sovany worked with me on the web team when she first started at IntelliDyne and quickly moved up to her current position as COO. Kyle joined IntelliDyne as a Help Desk Technician and is now the Program Manager on the same contract. It is nice to see the progression of both of their careers at IntelliDyne. The company prides itself on promoting from within and providing opportunities for advancement. You can see the strength of the company by looking at the retention of its staff, especially a company that works on government contracts.
