Who we are

Jeffrey Penner

Systems Administrator

Jeffrey left his job as a programmer analyst for a Fortune 500 company after 10 years of experience to work for a nonprofit organization, where he was able to use his skills and experience to support them in their work to fight against some of the greatest injustices on earthhuman trafficking and orphaned children.

After traveling the world and experiencing diverse cultures, he decided that he wanted to help more businesses and nonprofits be successful, so he joined Hydration Media where he uses his knowledge, experiences, and customer service skills to provide technology solutions, data management, and CRM management and automation to help organizations and their staff’s workload be more effective and efficient.

Jeffrey has 10 years of experience with data integration and more than 16 years of experience in software development. He is a business analyst who specializes in data analysis and data integration.

He graduated with highest honors from Southwest Baptist University, Bolivar, Missouri, with dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics.




"All the projects I have given to Jeffrey to work on have been completed to the specifications asked for; in addition Jeffrey has a great talent for identifying gaps in workflow and adjusting to ensure the end result is above and beyond what we asked for. Jeffrey's attention to detail is incredible and truly an asset to the service he provides."
