Dustin Shives – IT Support Specialist
Dustin came to Beacon after a 15-year career in the healthcare field and is currently finishing his bachelor’s degree in systems administration and cloud computing from WGU. While moving from healthcare to information technology might seem like a big change, Dustin doesn’t see it that way.
“At Beacon I get to keep that sense of teamwork and personal interaction that I enjoyed in healthcare. In a hospital, you have your CNA’s, nurses and doctors. Here, you have your level-one technicians, level-two technicians, system administrators and so on, but you’ve still got to have the teamwork. If you don’t have a team, if you don’t work as a team, you won’t create that common goal for your patient or client.”
As her father, John Scaramuzzo, cofounded Beacon when she was two years old, you might say Marissa is one of Beacon’s longest-running team members. Growing up alongside the business brought her close to computers at a young age, and her passion for technology has only grown now that she’s a bona fide BITS member. In addition to studying web design and computer sciences in high school and college, Marissa has also learned a great deal from her fellow BITS members. For Marissa, it’s this built-in culture of knowledge sharing and collaboration that sets BITS apart.
“Much of my IT knowledge comes from what Beacon’s Finest have taught me. For each person on your IT team, chances are you’ve added at least one unique skill to your repertoire. Our communication and comparing notes is crucial because it allows us to gain a larger, more detailed picture of the problem so we can better determine how to resolve it.”
Encouraged at a young age to pursue law, medicine, engineering, or architecture, Caleb first trained as an architect, but he always knew he was made to work in information technology. Now, as BITS’ IT Services Manager, Caleb combines nearly a decade of experience and a lifelong love of technology to bring your institution the rapid and quality IT support your institution depends on to run smoothly.
As IT Services Manager, Caleb does a bit of everything: day-to-day business management, tech support work, system administration, office administration, and more. Caleb takes great pride in his fellow BITS team members and their ability to share knowledge and coordinate efforts.
“At bigger companies, your tier-one technician may only be able to help with passwords or something like that. They read off a list of solutions to a certain point and then they pass you off. Here, our tech support and system administrators openly collaborate and a lot of knowledge transfer occurs, so our specialists are strong in all areas. Any one of ours would wipe the floor with a tier-one technician somewhere else. You won’t be working through some major hierarchy that takes days and days to resolve. Based on our metrics, we resolve 95% of all calls on the day we receive them.”
