Get Started

Sales Team

More than two decades in the Marine Corps has taught me a proper sense of urgency and understanding.
From deploying over 800 military personnel overseas to raising my twin daughters, I value the importance of understanding problems from the other person’s perspective. My priority is to take what I’ve learned over the years to help our clients, vendors and co-workers to achieve their goals.

Victor Zuniga
Client Relationship Manager

Treat others the way you want to be treated.
I love working for Symplicity because of the family-like atmosphere that you feel when talking to anyone on the team. We treat our employees like family, and we strive to have those kinds of relationships with our clients as well because everyone deserves to be treated with care and respect.

Jameson Bardowski
Client Relationship Manager

Helping our clients is my top priority.
I look forward to solving problems in the best possible way, exceeding expectations with kindness and focused on team success. This has become my personal goal every day. I enjoy working with Symplicity Communications because we share a similar goal: to always do the best in every situation. Symplicity inspires me to do better — to be a better team player, mom, wife, friend and person.

Lina Arteaga
Sales and Marketing Administrative Coordinator

Marketing Team

My greatest joy is helping others. I see my role as the Marketing Communications Manager, here at Symplicity, as an exciting opportunity to continue doing just that. Whether assisting our hardworking sales and engineering team, our dedicated operations team, or nurturing relationships with our valued clients and service providers, I am here to help make your life a little easier! With a background in marketing, extensive international experience, and a passion for empowering people, I cannot wait to find new ways to delight my colleagues and our customers.

Angela Treptow
Marketing Communications Manager

Engineering Team

I want clients to breathe easy.
There's no sense in connecting people to technology if it doesn't ultimately reduce headaches. I work hard to learn every aspect of our clients’ situation, ensuring that the real obstacles to their business outcomes are removed as strategically as possible. Even with 16 years of experience, I never assume I've seen it all. Each client is different and deserves to have their unique preferences and pain points at the center of a tech solution, not the other way round.

Brandon Burchard
Technical Solutions Engineer

I'm here to help you get where you want to go.
Having been an IT customer for over 25 years, I know the pains and pitfalls of getting things done on a budget, often with little or no help. That’s why you can count on me. You don’t need to struggle and guess. I am here to listen to your story and lend a helping hand. Together we can figure out how to get you where you want to go.

David Dykema
Microsoft & Technical Solutions Engineer

After nearly 15 years in the IT world, you’d think I’ve seen it all.
I’ve seen a lot, but there is always something new on the horizon or some new challenge our clients need to solve. One of the exciting things about being in this industry is providing solutions to our clients on a daily basis. I love the sense of pride and accomplishment I get from resolving something that causes one of our clients pain.

Carl Olson
Client Services / Administrative Coordinator

Operations Team

Integrity and reliability are the cornerstone principles that I operate by.
I joined the Symplicity Communications team in January 2020. I bring 25 years of office manager and sales coordinator experience to the fast-paced, technical world of technology. I am also the mom of four determined daughters who keep me on my toes. My goal is to lead by example, and I’m willing to roll up my sleeves and tackle whatever needs to be done. I want our clients, partners and teammates to feel confident that I have their back and that they can count on me to do what it takes to resolve issues and support their objectives.

Renee Velderman
Administrative Manager

There’s nothing like coming through for people depending on you.
I come from a ridiculously small town where everyone knows everyone, and that small town experience has given me a strong sense of accountability. I go out of my way to ensure that my clients have a rewarding experience. My approach is to do the right thing, and the money and success will follow. I’m proud of what we do here.

Samantha Scholten
Senior Implementation Coordinator

I value integrity and honesty above all else, and you will see that in every interaction.
When you combine integrity and honesty with my daily goal of making the client’s job easier, you have a win-win scenario. It’s important to me that everything I do reflects my personal values as well as Symplicity’s values. Whether it’s a client or a co-worker, you are guaranteed to get my very best every time.

Amanda Drent
Administrative Coordinator

Caring about others gets you everywhere.
My husband AJ and our wonderful children keep me grounded and inspire me to be a positive force in the world. When I’m at work, I give co-workers and clients the same attention I’d give my family, making sure that the faith they put in me is rewarded. I keep a close eye on their projects and work hard to ensure that they’re safe in my hands. The atmosphere at Symplicity energises me — It’s like working with family.

Britney Hayden
Administrative Coordinator

I strive to work hard and maintain a positive attitude in everything that I do. After earning my bachelor’s degree in Communication at Michigan State University, I entered the telecommunications world to explore my interest in technology trends and my passion for helping others. At Symplicity Communications, I’m able to do both of those things. I focus on seeking opportunities for cost reduction and technology advancement, as well as creating positive relationships with our clients as I help them overcome their obstacles.

Administrative Coordinator
