CFO Spotlight - Nesha Donaldson, Cullman RMC

Nesha Donaldson, CFO Cullman RMC

1.       Tell us a little about your family and pets?

My husband Mike and I have been married for 34 years.  We have a son and a daughter.  Our son is a Grain Buyer and trades on the commodities market and our daughter is a Pharmacist.  We also have two red-headed granddaughters who are only 6 weeks apart in age.  Many people mistake them for twins instead of cousins. 

We live “in the country” and have been in the same house for almost 30 years.  The area we live is surrounded by family.  Over the years, we have had almost every possible kind of pet or livestock, including cows, horses, sheep, goats and even miniature donkeys.  We now have 2 dogs, a cat, a horse, 23 hens and 2 roosters.  My granddaughters love the animals and love being outside.

2.       What is your favorite place to vacation and why?

My favorite place to vacation is Destin, Florida.  We have been going to Destin since we married, and we love the area.  The beach is the one place where I can truly relax.  Destin has beautiful white sand, emerald green water and the sound of the waves is soothing for my soul.

3.       What is your favorite thing about living in Cullman, AL?

I was born in Cullman, and have lived here most of my life.  Cullman is a wonderful place to live and raise children with good healthcare, good education systems and good quality of life.  We have always been active in our church and the local school system, and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. 

We are very thankful that our children chose to raise their children where they grew up, around family and friends.  They live near us, on the “family compound,” and we get to share in their daily lives.  We also provide free babysitting service.

4.       What keeps you up at night?

With the constant changes in healthcare, it is always a struggle to keep up with the new requirements and regulations.  The last few years at Cullman Regional Medical Center have seen some very dramatic financial improvement, and I worry about sustainability. 

5.       Tell us one thing we don’t know about you that you’re willing to share?

My husband and I, along with our two children, and our son-in-law, graduated from Auburn University.  Even though we love Auburn, we are Alabama fans.  We were raised Alabama fans, and just never converted.  My husband’s middle name is Bryant!  Most people assume that we are huge Auburn fans, so I usually just keep that to myself.  My secret is now out.

1.       Tell us a little about your background, family and pets?

I have been in the Information Technology field for over 26 years and in Healthcare IT for 23 of those years.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and I started as a programmer directly out of college working for a Coal Software company.  After joining a hospital IT team as a Systems Analyst, I have never looked outside of healthcare for employment.  There is tremendous payback personally knowing that I have been a positive force in the evolution of technology in the Healthcare vertical.

I have been married for 25 years to my high school sweetheart, have 2 daughters ages 22 & 18, and 2 dogs.

2.       What is your favorite place to vacation and why?

My family loves to visit the beach areas for vacation.  We find the environment very relaxing.  Both daughters and myself all own Mustangs.  We have attended Mustang Week at Myrtle Beach SC every year for the past 4 years.

3.       What is your favorite thing about living in your current location?

We moved to Tuscaloosa, AL in the fall of 2015.  My family enjoys the college town experience.  I have found the citizens of Tuscaloosa and surrounding areas to be very friendly as well.  We enjoy the home Football games as much as we possibly can.  There are plenty of things to do in our spare time from shopping, athletic events, fairs, etc. that we have not had the opportunity to enjoy before moving to Tuscaloosa. 

4.       What keeps you up at night in relation to current healthcare issues?

Cybersecurity and HIPAA Breach potentials.  It is a constant battle trying to be a step ahead of the ‘Bad Guys’.  I can put sophisticated technology in place to slow the forces down, but technology is only part of the battle.  The Social Engineering component still needs to be addressed.

5.       Tell us one thing we don’t know about you that you’re willing to share?

I love cars.  I have bought, restored, rebuilt, and modified many throughout my years.  I currently enjoy my Mustang GT and have begun the modification process.  I also lettered in Bowling in College as well.
