Judith Youngblood has been working in Raiser’s Edge for nearly twenty years and in eTapestry for nearly ten years. Little Green Light (LGL) is the newest software in her repertoire that also extends to ResearchPoint and Luminate. After working in development departments in education, social services, public broadcasting, and the arts, she parlayed her peculiar love of order and data and her passion for teaching into WIST Data Solutions in 2014. When not tethered to her computer, Judith is a church musician and foster parent to puppies from the Kentucky Humane Society.
After over seven years of donor database management experience at several organizations, including a social service agency, a network of radio stations and a private school system, Christine joined the staff at WIST Data Solutions in late 2014. In addition to her past experience, she has completed the Professional Level of Certification for Raiser’s Edge. Christine works with clients in RE and LGL and is our team’s specialist in online donation functionality (primarily with Online Express and Luminate Online) as well as recurring/monthly giving. When not on site with a client or at the WIST office, she’s supervised by an orange cat named Simon.
Carl Lutes has worked in Information Technology positions since the literal dawn of the computer age, starting with wired boards rather than computers. His lifetime of experience – from room-sized mainframe computers to the most current PCs and tablets - and natural affinity for data made him an excellent fit for WIST when he joined the company in 2016 specializing in eTapestry and Excel tricks for effective data cleansing. Carl enjoys spending time with his wife, three children, and six grandchildren, traveling and walking in local parks and neighborhoods. He is also an amateur, but avid, genealogist.
Since completing RE training at Blackbaud HQ in 1999, Margaret Clements has worked in Advancement for education and social service institutions. After a brief retirement, she returned to the Raiser’s Edge world and WIST to put her considerable expertise to use. Margaret enjoys traveling and being outdoors with her family.
Diane West has over 25 years of administrative experience. She has also worked in Advancement in the education sector and is currently working toward her Blackbaud certifications. Diane provides support to our RE clients, as well as providing administrative support to the WIST team. Diane enjoys reading, baking, and scouring used furniture shops for new DIY projects.
