We are SOLID
Woman-owned. Team-led. A small business with a BIG impact.
Our vision is to design innovative solutions that promote economic mobility.
Our mission is strengthening our nation’s workforce by expanding pathways and increasing recognition of skills and abilities.
Who We Are
The Good Kind!
Our team of analysts know their stuff–their subject-matter expertise in the analysis of the education, training, and employment opportunities of current and former military personnel leads the field.
We’re Data Nerds
From Design To Development
At SOLID, we don’t mind being ‘nerdy’ when it comes to the work we’re passionate about. We deliver results for our clients and our communities every day, and continually push our own boundaries.
SOLID + CITIZENS
We’re professionals, but don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our team (a.k.a. SOLIDzens) define who we are and how we operate, and our culture is critical to our success.
Powerful Performance, Powered by People.
At SOLID, we believe in people. We believe in our team, and the collective power of all our voices, experiences, and backgrounds, and we believe our work and our business practices should be a reflection of who we are. Through a collective commitment to our core values, we strive to provide clients with our best work and our best selves, consistently raising the bar.

In 2003, partners Lisa Lutz and Tom Caldwell brought to life their vision of a responsive, efficient company that puts clients first, while working out of their own homes. We come from humble beginnings, founded on the principle that technical expertise, creativity, and dedication are the cornerstones of quality.
Over the last 17 years, though continuing to grow our client base and our team, SOLID has stayed true to this vision—delivering the personalized attention of a small business with big results and an even bigger impact.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Serving our Military Service Members and Veterans
From military service members, families, and spouses, to veterans and caregivers, we are committed to supporting the military community at every step of their service.
