"I enjoy working at Cognosante because there is never a dull moment. I have been given so many opportunities to learn new things and to be able to work with other employees and customers outside of Fargo, North Dakota. I have figured out what it takes to run a successful operation. For that, I am very proud to be part of the Cognosante organization"
