While it can be overwhelming at times, it is fun to see and work with new and exciting hardware and software.”

IT Turn on: Successfully completed projects

IT Turn off: Backorders

When he isn’t working, Jeff loves spending time at home with his wonderful wife and two beautiful teenaged daughters (whether or not said teens have reciprocal feelings about spending time with parents). He lives on a great 5-acre property, so the list of never-ending home projects keeps him occupied in most of his spare moments.

He has certifications in sales and marketing with Cisco, VMWare, and Microsoft.

When she isn’t working, Ryen loves to read, cook, and spend time outside with her son. She is grateful that her husband is kind enough (or hungry enough) to always eat whatever new dish she puts in front of him in her cooking adventures. If you can’t find her, chances are she is tucked away in a cozy corner reading.
