Meet The Team

What sets Minerva apart from the other donor management database solutions more than anything is our team of dedicated professionals and the support we are here to offer you when you need it.
Our Society has been a client of Minerva since 2005 and it has been a pleasure working with your staff. They are competent and very responsive. I always get timely responses to any questions or concerns that I might have and good solid advice when I need it. Keep up the great work!

Supervisor, Data Entry

Originally from British Columbia Rita's ethnic background is Dutch. A high school graduate with a few correspondence courses on top of that Rita is in her 6th year overseeing the data entry staff at IMS.

A stickler for detail Rita makes sure accuracy is maintained, business rules are followed to the letter and that all deliverables are met on schedule – if not before.
