Our Team


David Blackburn, aside from being our Editor-In-Chief, is also a contributing author for FedHealthIT Magazine, utilizing his status as a respected SME in the Federal Health IT contracting space to provide our readers with his take on current news affecting the federal health it market.

David also is the Founder and CEO of G2Xchange Health, a highly-facilitated online and offline community designed specifically for the Federal Health IT executive responsible for growth.


April Doster is the driving force behind FedHealthIT Magazine. April, as our Chief Cat Herder, strives to keep our team on track, communicates deadlines and specifications with contributing authors, and ensures that our publications, both online and in print, are of the highest quality.


Known for her love of the Oxford Comma, strong dislike of incorrect usage of the ellipsis, and addiction to large quantities of coffee, Beth Scalzitti strives for the highest quality of content for FedHealthIT Magazine. (We aren’t kidding about the ellipsis, for your own safety and well-being, don’t use 6 dots, even as a joke.)


Susan brings to the team more than 20 years of success and achievement within the Federal Health and Federal Health IT environments.  Susan engages with the community by leading a number of key efforts, to include FedHealthIT’s two flagship events: The FedHealthIT100 Awards and the FedHealthIT Innovation Awards, as well as FedHealthIT’s print, online, and digital services programs.


Heather Seftel-Kirk is a freelance writer whose articles, interviews and blogs, over the past decade, have appeared in print, online, and in private organizations and corporations across North America and globally. An avid reader, she is also a firm believer that every person has a story to tell and that every story is worth sharing, if told right. Heather works with each interviewee to ensure their story is a true reflection of the person, their experiences and their beliefs.

Jackie Gilbert, as our Content Analyst, plows through heaps of recent contract awards and keeps an eye out for key people moving jobs, in order to post the current news on both fronts, to keep our readers informed. Jackie also compiles the Contract Awards and Industry Move sections for each print magazine issue.
