We all know how much communications plays a roll in our daily lives and how dependent we have all become because it. With the many different choices that we have nowadays with service providers it can be hard to make the right choice.
That's where Jean can help. As an independent service provider Jean is a one stop shop for high speed internet, home phone service, wireless services, energy services (natural gas & electric), satellite tv, home security services and payment processing services.
Jean says "I have continued to work in the daily operations of the business. Helping people to create a better financial situation for themselves and their families never gets tiring. And showing customers how to lower their bills on essential services is rewarding."
"Customers choose me, for their services because, I meet their need through consultative selling."
Jean is also a very active member in our community with the St, Vincent de Paul Society at OLPH catholic church on Miller & Indian School. She enjoys being able to give back and see the results of her work along with all of the others who are involved within the OLPH family.
