The Entrepreneurs who Move America Forward
Maria J. Hankerson - Dr.
Systems Assessment & Research
Tell us about your business.
For 23-years, Systems Assessment & Research, Inc. specialized in upper level healthcare staff augmentation for the U.S. Department of Defense and other government entities. As President and CEO, I created not only employment opportunities, but an atmosphere of growth and development where individuals gained insight as to other skills that they had which were dormant. I am a big proponent of in-house training. As such, employment with our firm helped individuals to grow professionally and personally, and advance within the organization, by learning a different skill set, and accepting greater responsibilities. People who have worked for me have gone on to become entrepreneurs themselves, or advance to other positions.

What drove you to become a part of your industry?
Every employer has a responsibility to do the best they can to advance both their people through training and grow their organization. In so doing, you create a stronger workforce of skilled and highly skilled indivuals who have a greateer sense of accomplishment and confidence in their ability to make a difference.

How did you get started?
It all started in 1995. Everyone thought it was a crazy idea to start a software development business because the company started with me and my 4 friends and one laptop.
