Meet Our Team
KMD Enterprises began with a small band of technology professionals who worked together for years as employees of another organization. As we honed specific skills around web sites in general – and WordPress, specifically – we knew that we wanted to keep our team together and focus on just those things.
Along the way, we’ve made new friends, but the original idea is the same: we want a diverse team of passionate techno-creatives who can operate in a safe environment of mutual respect and trust. Through defined processes and standards, we are able to deliver consistency while still making room for the sort of creative expression needed to make every website special. And because we take a holistic approach, we’re prepared to address every aspect of your website: from how to tell your story to keeping your site safe and secure to planning for where we go next.
When you work with KMDE, our team becomes part of your team.
We don't just build websites; we buld relationships.
Kenn has 30+ years in enterprise IT, and while he loves to develop, his real forte is in the architecture of complex systems. He's an expert with LAMP/LEMP, Docker, Linux, and deploying with AWS and Digital Ocean.
Mandi has strong technical skills covering a wide variety of technologies. Her skill with people balances this out, and makes her exceptionally good at understanding the needs of the customer and finding the best ways to bring them to technological fruition.
Like most of us, Donald comes from a development background. Much of the work he has done in his career has been with Finance and HR, and through this he has learned both sides of business operations. His background makes him an indispensable resource for KMDE operations. We wouldn't be here without his hard work.

And she's still going strong!
Stephanie comes from a background of remote management in the publishing and academic fields where she worked as a managing editor and writer. She holds a BA and an MA in American History plus a Minor in Fine Arts Studies.
Giavanna "Gigi" Powers
Originally from South Brunswick, New Jersey, Gigi moved to Chattanooga in 2016 to attend The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She graduates in December 2020 with a BA in Marketing. She's most passionate about Digital Marketing and design. "If I could describe Marketing in one word," Gigi says, "it would be 'moving'. Marketing is always progressing, and businesses need their marketing to keep moving forward and stay on trend."
Jaime specializes in User Experience (UX) design, which is the science of how humans interact with products (such as websites and applications). Her deep understanding of the principles of UX blend well with her aesthetic sense and understanding of technology. Jamie has a Bachelor's Degree in English/History and a Master's Degree in Information Sciences.
