Becky Jacobs

Owner / President

With 23 years as a technology consultant in the Outsourced IT Services industry, I have assisted with evaluating software packages, managed networks and computers, and proposed hardware and software solutions for more than 400 clients in numerous industries. I have extensive experience in managing technical projects, namely discovery, development, and implementation.

As a System Administrator for Sebrite Financial Corporation and as a Network Technician for Uptime Computer Services, I developed troubleshooting skills to resolve operating system, database, network, software, and hardware problems. I have extensive knowledge of personal computers, related operating systems, network design, and configurations like Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN) communications.

I am a Microsoft Certified Professional with in-depth knowledge of Microsoft licensing and Microsoft 365. I also have 5 years of experience as a Licensed Life/Health and Property/Casualty Insurance Producer. As an insurance professional, I gained knowledge about business and financial risk, which has helped me consult and develop technology plans with top-level executives across many industries.

My goal is to work as an advocate of your business — I connect your company with the appropriate resources and advise with your company’s best interests in mind. I would be happy to provide referrals that will attest that I have held to these principles throughout my career. I look forward to helping you resolve your technology challenges and hope to become a valued part of your business team.
