Joel Mulder, PMP
Senior Consultant, Consulting Manager
Before joining the Heller Consulting team, I had more than 10 years of experience in the development field. I first began working as a tele-fundraiser while still a student at the University of Minnesota. I worked my way up, moving from data entry to managing Raiser’s Edge databases, and eventually acting as development operations manager for Allina Health Systems in Minneapolis. Working in this facility, I implemented unified business practices and coding systems across Allina’s twelve development departments and 10 fundraising databases, and worked with Heller consulting on a project to consolidate these databases into one system.
Joining the Heller team in 2008, I began working with clients including Ronald McDonald House Charities, McCormick Foundation, Midwest Eye-Banks, Lions Club International Foundation, and many others. In more recent years in my role as a project lead on larger, complex implementation projects, I have focused on coordinating Heller work, managing resources, and ensuring deliverables on projects with clients such as Mayo Clinic Health System, American Kidney Fund, and JDRF. Additionally, I work to manage a team of consultants similarly focused on our firm’s largest and most complex projects.
I find my work at Heller Consulting to be extremely rewarding: working with a great team to serve a variety of clients, identifying pain points, and working to collaboratively resolve these issues and deliver new technology solutions.
