DAWA Solutions Group

Our Team

“We are small, but we are mighty.”

Things are always interesting in western North Dakota. Like so many of our clients, we have seen dramatic activity, growth, changes, and challenges over the past decade. Having started as a one-man-shop, DAWA has grown slowly by recruiting and retaining great people.

Many can’t believe the size of our staff and all that we accomplish. It all begins with a focus on the needs of the market and our clients. The secret is our team of highly talented individuals with diverse skill sets, heavy workloads, friendly faces, positive attitudes and a common desire to help our clients succeed. Allow us to familiarize you with our entire staff.



TeamKayla.png
Kayla Stamp
Office Administrator

The newest addition to our team, Kayla, is a Williston native and she perfectly completed our crew in March 2016. She keeps us all organized and on-task while she tests websites, answers phones, writes content, shuffles paper, proofreads, and multi-tasks about a million other things. Another Harry Potter fanatic, Kayla loves to travel, cook, and can most likely be found volunteering with the local community theatre when she's not bringing order to chaos.

Kevin Penner
Developer

A computer programmer by training, trade and temperament, Kevin has been developing website and web applications for DAWA since 2007.  With over 20 years of programming experience, he has seen programming languages and platforms come and go but has never lost the thrill of making the computer do cool and useful things. When he finds time that is not taken up with work, church, and family, he enjoys puzzles, reading, and music.

Tiffany Smith
Graphic Designer

Creative and talented, Tiffany has been with us since 2010. She works hard to make sure our clients love the look of their final product. A native North Dakotan with southern heritage, she has since abandoned us to live and work from her home office in Louisiana where she moved to be closer to family. In her spare time she loves to cook, read, explore the world, and decorate her first home.

David joined our crew in March of 2012 after earning his engineering degree at John Brown University in Arkansas. He loves using technology to create amazing web applications that make our clients’ work more productive and efficient. In his spare time, he likes to volunteer at church, tinker with electronics, or play MineCraft™.


TeamErica.png

Erica MacDiarmid
Event Production & Marketing Manager

As an event marketing specialist with almost 20 years of experience, she enjoys developing new opportunities to produce programs and events that will deliver real results. Her enthusiasm and passion for event planning and project management overflows into her personal life where she has been known to schedule “spontaneity” time.  Talk about the ultimate multi-tasker, catch her during her spare time you’ll find her baking or reading the latest Daniel Silva book – often at the same time!


TeamJeff.png        Jeff Zarling
Owner/President

Everyone pretty much knows Jeff. If not, you haven’t been doing business in Williston for very long. He is zealous about getting to know anyone operating or wanting to operate in the area and getting them connected. Around here we know him as the “idea man”, “problem solver”, “go-getter” or simply “the boss”. Jeff keeps us busy with his numerous ventures, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. His passion is what keeps us all going.
