Maria Heath Joins Zekiah’s Database Development Team

Zekiah Technologies, Inc. is pleased to welcome Maria Heath to our Database Development team! Ms. Heath is a native Southern Marylander, hailing from our very own Charles County. She has since moved to the Northern Neck of Virginia where she has raised her family, German Shepherd dog, and multiple cats. Though she doesn’t currently have any horses, they were her main reason for moving to Virginia (Virginia is for horse lovers!), a passion shared by several other Zekiah employees!

Maria earned her BS in Computer Science from the University of Maryland University College (recently renamed the University of Maryland Global Campus). Originally a civilian government employee, Maria made the switch to a contractor and has supported the government in that capacity for the last 20 years. Her professional interests include Oracle databases and UNIX servers, making her a perfect fit for Zekiah’s work.

When Maria joined Zekiah in late September she said “I joined the Zekiah team to work in a friendly office environment with educational/training opportunities and to find a better work/life balance.” Zekiah recognizes the importance of a good work/life balance and is excited to be part of Maria’s. Cassandra Casablanca, Maria’s supervisor, shared her excitement stating “I’m pleased to welcome Maria to the NEMS contract. With her depth of experience in database administration and development and her ability to hit the ground running, I know she’ll be an invaluable member of the team.” Welcome aboard Maria!

Zekiah Technologies is a small business headquartered in La Plata, MD committed to exceeding the expectations of our clients through innovation and the ingenuity of our technical solutions in the fields of software development, systems engineering, geospatial technologies, and training.
