Vernon Green meets with North Stafford Rotary Club

From The Free-Lance Star

ROTARY CLUB: Veteran, business owner addresses group

 

The North Stafford Rotary Club was fortunate to have Vernon Green at its meeting to explain his GCubed Inc., Community Services and how it helps our community. Green began his company by speaking to youngsters at his children’s school. He taught them to be respectful to their superiors and to take responsibility for their decisions. He describes his businesses as being “small but mighty.” Just as successful personal relationships are built on trust and transparency, Green uses that as a guideline in his dealings with his clients. He also follows the seven core values of the Army in order to be a role model for the children and teens he helps. He specializes in keeping people and businesses securely connected.

Employee Spotlight  

When Kaniz started working at CAA, the database environment needed a lot of attention and had many performance issues. She made it her mission to make improvements each day, and soon became an invaluable member of the team. An average day includes responding to troubleshooting help tickets, performing server system checks, and working on special projects as requested by the customer.

Away from the office, Kaniz loves to cook and work on decorating her home. She cites her mother’s talents as a home cook and creative decorator as a source of inspiration. She enjoys movies and sees them as a great opportunity to understand different perspectives. Kaniz loves spending time with her son and daughter.

Her experience with GCubed thus far has been very rewarding. In addition to all the people she has met, her position has given her the chance to share her knowledge as a SQL Database Administrator. Kaniz is eager to continue learning and growing in her position at CAA.

Internship Success Spotlight  

My experience with the Center for Army Analysis and GCubed was great! A large part of my duties included inventorying computer systems and verifying part numbers and serial numbers for turn in. This required me to pay great attention to detail, a skill I was able to improve upon and now use at my current position as an Imagery Analyst. My new position also allows me to use the clearance I obtained through GCubed.

Additionally, my time at CAA afforded me the opportunity to learn protocol for working in a secured access government facility. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity GCubed provided me.

Above & Beyond Customer Service

GCubed is pleased to share positive feedback from our customers at the Center for Army Analysis (CAA). Dennis McDowell, Shaunda Jones, and Vinh Vuong were recently recognized by the leadership:

Dennis has taken command of the help desk in a way that ensures ticketing actions are streamlined and tracked. He is meticulous and proactive in his approach to getting things done. He is focused and extremely professional in the execution of his duties. Users have nothing but positive comments about the support he provides.

Shaunda has proven herself to be invaluable. In addition to her primary role as one of the system administrators, she has distinguished herself as the onsite lead in that she is able to perform both roles simultaneously and seamlessly. She has even gained a reputation with some of our external partners, most notably the NEC, as an individual who is about the customer’s business. 

Les DeShield
CTO, CAA

Some of CAA’s assets were unexpectedly quarantined without warning recently, causing a work stoppage for some of the customers. Vinh Vuong immediately assessed the situation and leveraged his contacts at the Network Enterprise Center (NEC) for assistance. He was able to work with the SME of the identified issue and get it resolved in a timely manner. It is my opinion that this issue would not have been resolved so quickly had it not been for Mr. Vuong. 

Shaunda Jones
Systems Administrator, CAA

Thank you to everyone who attended the Riddick Entertainment Summer Festival! A great time was had by all. Congratulations to all of the Community Award winners. A special thank you to Tiffany Gourdine and Marlo Parker for helping make this event a success. Thanks to Desert Wind Band, Eli the YouTube sensation, and DJ Choice for providing entertainment.

Thank you to Pastor Lacey and Touch Hearts Christian Center for providing 75 backpacks filled with school supplies for the community. We appreciate them organizing this effort. The backpacks were handed out to children at the Riddick Entertainment Summer Festival.
