I began my career in telecom when our telecom manager was dismissed. My boss told me to see what I could do with our telephone system as well as our cell phones. At the time we had a Definity system with 2 IP Office locations. I spent a year learning bits and pieces to keep the existing system running. During that year it was decided we needed to upgrade our system to Communication Manager and add 1 VoIP location and over the next 14 months an additional 6 VoIP locations. I am completely self taught and continue to learn as I go. I currently manage 14 IP Office locations. IP Office V9.1 with VMPro. This fall we are moving over to V10 Server Edition.
I have served on the Board of the Washington (PNW Chapter) since 2011 and I am currently the Chair for the Attendee Experience Committee for Engage 2019.
