Since 2005 we’ve grown Geek Girls IT by serving our clients with exceptional integrity, reliability and competence. These qualities allow us to provide the best managed IT Services in New Jersey.
Here is a sample of our senior administrative and technical staff who help make that happen.
Senior Consultant and CEO
Roberta is the founder of Geek Girls IT Services. She holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Tufts University, which she earned concurrently with a bachelor’s degree in jazz piano from New England Conservatory.
Although Roberta had a brief stint as a software engineer (at the long-defunct Digital Equipment Corporation) before giving it up many years ago for a career as a professional musician, Roberta’s interest in computer and IT support began when, as a “starving artist”, she couldn’t afford to pay anyone else to solve her computer problems for her. She soon discovered that her left brain was well-suited to the task, and in 2005 she founded the company to provide IT support to New York and New Jersey companies.
From her inauspicious beginning as a one-woman computer troubleshooter, Roberta has grown Geek Girls IT into a full-service managed service provider with several experienced techs ready to assist our clients in New York and New Jersey with all things technology-related including cyber security, servers, cloud services, help desk support, audio/video, and VoIP/PBX services.
Roberta is also proud of Geek Girls IT Services’ unique status as a certified woman-owned computer services business in New Jersey.
While her technical experience and her logical mind make her well suited to running Geek Girls IT Services, Roberta believes it is her liberal arts background that makes Geek Girls IT special. More than just a geek, Roberta is an excellent problem solver and communicator who enjoys going the extra mile for her clients, as do all of the team members at Geek Girls IT Services.
Nancy joined Geek Girls IT Services in December of 2016. Clients appreciate her upbeat and helpful personality. She’s usually the first point of contact when you reach out to us for IT support and will go out of her way to accommodate your needs.
Nancy has a degree in psychology; she also spent many years as a professional musician before re-entering the business world. She’s worked in many different fields – web development, editorial, interior design and accounting – so she has experience with the wide range of office environments reflected in our New York and New Jersey computer support clientele.
Matthew has been working in IT and computer services in New Jersey and New York for twelve years. He first became interested in technology when he was twelve. “My mother bought a computer for my brother and me”, he explains. “I loved everything about it, and I took it apart. (My mother was so angry!) When I put it back together it was fully functional! From that point on I would take apart any electronics that I could get my hands on and learn everything about them.”
Matthew has a degree in Network Systems Administration, but he considers himself largely self-taught. He is an expert in network security, web services security, PHP, JAVA, HTML, C+, and Windows and Apple operating systems.
Matthew loves the everyday challenges of working at Geek Girls IT Services in Bergen County. He especially enjoys troubleshooting issues and addressing security vulnerabilities in networks and websites. In addition to technology, Matthew enjoys riding his Banshee Two-Stroke Quad and spending time with his wife and son in New Jersey.
Nathaniel has been working in IT Services in the New York / New Jersey area for over ten years. He first became interested in technology when he and his older brother built a computer together. Later, his brother would send him on his first computer job, and from then on, he knew he wanted to work in IT.
Nate has a Bachelor’s degree in computer information systems and is an expert in networking. He especially enjoys setting up networks from scratch. “I love to see an empty room become a functioning office network,” he enthuses. Nate also enjoys solving users’ problems and learning new technology.
Nate is particularly passionate about connecting with customers. “Some techs focus so much on the technical that they forget about the soft skills.”
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Nathaniel is also a talented singer/songwriter who performs and tours regularly.
Rebecca likes to experiment with new technology. She thinks the Raspberry Pi is one of the best things ever invented. While she has a degree in computer science from Smith College, she has learned a good deal about computer technology online as well. In addition to her experience in IT services, she has a background in a variety of fields including web development and paralegal work.
As a computer support technician, Becca has a passion for making technology accessible to all. She strongly believes that, given how pervasive technology has become, everyone should feel comfortable using it.
Outside of work, Becca likes to sew historical costumes, particularly from the 1800s.
