I started my career in 1985 with American Sharecom (now Level3). At American Sharecom we sold long distance and data services only to business customers. I then went to LDDS (MCI) continuing to sell ld to business customers. My last corp employeer was Sprint Communication selling long distance and data. I found that although I enjoyed working with large business customers I wanted to be able to give them a lasting relationship that could offer more products from just one source.
I took a leap of faith and started my own small business doing just that. I started out selling ATT long distance to businesses across MN. Four years later and lots of hard work, I was able to hire my first employee. We continued to sell ld and data up to 1998 at which point US West allowed competition to sell in the 14 state Bell region. As of today we currently have 8 full time employees which bring a total of 70+ years of telecom experience to our customers. I enjoy working with our many different clients and value the lasting relationships I have made over the past 25+ years.
I started Integrated Communications in 1989 and enjoy working with all our clients on a daily basis, and being part of a positive telecom experience. I enjoy being with friends and family. I spend my time outside of the office fishing, hunting, golfing and always love good road trip! I bought an RV this past year so will be hitting the road on occasion to see our wonderful country.
My kids are wonderful… Holly is living in Madison working for a Micro Finance group that helps entrepreneur/local start-ups in smaller countries around the world. Joey is pursuing his dream in the golf course management and has come back to work at Hazeltine National Golf Club and my youngest daughter Hope is a Sophomore at the U of M working on Economics degree.
I have worked with Integrated Communications since October of 2009 and have been in the telecommunications industry since 2006. I love being a consultant to my clients and having the ability to work with them on any aspect of their communications with any vendor in the market. It allows me to deliver the right product and technology for the business 100% of the time.
When I am not at work solving the world’s problems, I keep myself busy with the normal MN activities. I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, snowboarding, traveling, snowmobiling, softball and just about anything outside.
Friends, family and just about everyone who knows me will tell you three things. One: I’m a current events junkie. Two: I take great satisfaction in planting, harvesting and eating the vegetables and herbs I grow in my backyard garden (yum!) and Three: My family is the epicenter of my life.
I am one of the newest members of the ICI team and consider myself very fortunate to be working with such a great group of people. My husband and I are food and wine enthusiasts and love to entertain family and friends. We also love to travel to California wine country and anywhere in Europe – especially France and Italy.
Integrated Communications has become a second family for me. I started working in the Telecom industry in 2000 and planted my roots with Integrated in 2002. Telecom has changed so much for the days of dial up internet and analog lines to fiber internet and hosted phone services. I enjoy working with clients and value all of our relationships.
In my spare time I LOVE to travel. Cruising the Caribbean has become a recent favorite. Ask me about the next trip I’m planning!
“Take vacations, go as many places as you can. You can always make money, you can’t always make memories”
I have been in the phone business for 25 years. My Motto: ”Think of me as an employee of yours, but you don’t have to pay for me.” We are reimbursed by the carriers we recommend. I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have a married son who blessed us with a beautiful granddaughter and handsome grandson. We also have a married daughter who blessed us on St Patty’s Day 2014 with identical twin girls. My favorite past times are golf and ALL Minnesota sports; good and bad.
I have been in telecommunications business for over 14 years. I worked at Centurylink from 2000 to 2014 so I bring a lot of knowledge of the business with me. I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful team.
I am a mom of 2 wonderful boys JJ and Jordan, and have 3 beautiful grandchildren, Chloe, Jaxson, and Jagger, they are the center of my life right now. I have been married to my husband Jim for 26 years. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
