  • " Jennifer has assisted me with all of my computer and telephone issues for the past 2 years. She has always been helpful and willing to meet with me whenever I had issues. She is very quick to identify the problem and she teaches me how to deal with these problems should they occur again in the future. I would strongly recommend Jennifer any time if you need help with your computer, smart phone or tablet. Bob Walch "

  • " Tina was amazing in helping me set up my new computer.
