Marie Perry (CNI/CNE)

Marie is an advanced network consultant and technical training specialist with over 20 years of progressive experience. She has directory services and email experience dating back to 1984 in a Banyan Vines environment with the federal government. She left the government to pursue CNE certification and to better her career. In January 97 she passed the Novell Instructor Performance Evaluation exam and was awarded CNI status.

Marie has continued to expand her career in the IT field with both teaching and consulting for organizations ranging from 5 people (Novell's Small Business Suite) to corporations of 10,000 plus users. One client has been highlighted twice in Novell Cool Solutions. Marie is often called upon to assist with projects where other consultants have claimed "it can't be done". Marie is competent with all versions of NetWare from 4.x on.  Her specialties are with GroupWise, ZENworks and eDirectory. She also provides end user training related to Novell products.  She is also GWAVA certified.

Clients enjoy Marie's approach to both training and consulting. She is able to convey complex concepts to people at all levels of understanding. Her normal approach to consulting is one that includes training. She will guide IT personnel through the task at hand and explain where necessary along the way. This approach leaves the customer with the confidence that they are able to manage their network changes after she has left the site. Marie is also able to just come in and do the job if that is what the customer prefers.
