Tech tip: “No clicky-clicky”
I attended James Madison University where I obtained a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Management. While I took a few classes in Entrepreneurship, I never dreamed that I would own my own business. It has been an ever-changing, evolving ride. We started the company when Main Frames ran companies and the world wide web wasn’t even invented. People still used DOS and Microsoft wasn’t a giant! Now here we are moving companies to the Cloud! Amazing how technology changes so fast. I am so glad that we have a team that is eager and willing to keep up, learn and adapt so quickly to all of our client’s needs.

Tech tip: “Do not click on an email attachment or link if you do not know the sender or are not expecting the email”
I began my employment at CSU as a printer technician back in 1997. I was one of the first employees that Chuck and Michelle hired when the business still operated out of their house. I took a leave of absence from 2004-2008 to move down to Florida to see if I was capable of living through hurricanes… I loved the sunshine and beautiful weather… the hurricanes, not so much! In 2008 I decided I had had enough! I called Michelle and told her I was thinking of moving back to the DC area and would she consider having mem come back to work at CSU. Luckily, she didn’t hesitate. She even offered to set up a cot for me at the office!
Since coming home, I have been a CSU dispatcher and then moved to an inside sales position. Wearing so many hats over the years has given me a true perspective from the customer’s viewpoint and I am usually able to remedy many issues before they are ever escalated to our service department.

Tech tip: “You can always try restarting it.”
I have been a neighbor of Michelle and Chuck’s for 24 years and have found it interesting to watch their growth. Having been retired for 10 years I had been looking for something extra to do, when Michelle casually commented that she needed to hire another Intern. To that comment I replied, “How about a retiree?” and the rest is history. Working here has been a joy and challenge but I love learning new things.
