San Diego, CA, October 4, 2019 – Managed Solution has supported and been involved with Computers 2 SD Kids for quite some time now. Managed Solution has donated their own old laptops and devices as well as introduced their clients to this non-profit organization to donate their equipment as well.

The laptops, desktops and other devices donated to Computers 2 SD Kids are refurbished, wiped clean and then distributed to families in need at local schools and around town. Children who use home computers perform better in school, however 23% of San Diego County families are without computers. Computers 2 SD Kids was formed to help fill that gap.

Recently, The WIT Network – San Diego, co-chaired by two Managed Solution employees, Tina Rountree, and Jennifer Benedict gave their time at one of the distribution locations to hand out the devices to local families.

Tina Rountree, Director of Sales at Managed Solution and co-chair to the WIT Network SD Chapter, commented, “Having the opportunity to help these kids do better in school through the use of technology is amazing. With the refurbished devices comes anti-virus software and Office 365 applications so the kids are really set up for success. I love empowering others through the use of technology, and if we can start them young, even better. It was a beautiful day to help out, and we look forward to the next one.”

 Jennifer Benedict, added by saying, “The WIT Network is so important to me. It’s about empowerment and supporting one another. Today, not only did we do that for each other, but more importantly, for the kids. The smiles on these families’ faces were totally worth it. They’re going to have a bright future, and I’m glad we could lend a hand in that.”

 About Computers 2 SD Kids

C2K believes all children and their families in San Diego, regardless of their economic status, need to be computer literate and have equal access to technology and the crucial educational, occupational, and financial resources that technology can provide to improve their educational options and their futures.

When I initially started school, I went into the college of engineering for genetic engineering. I chose the University of Michigan because it was one of the few schools offering that track back then. As I started my junior year, I got a call from my dad saying he had just lost his job. They laid him off after twenty-seven years and that was a huge turning point in my life, a lot of things changed from that moment going forward. What I saw happen to my dad after that had even more of an impact on me. He had really lost himself, it hurt his ego because he really defined himself through his job, which I didn’t realize until he lost his job. Watching him go through that made me think about what I really wanted to do, especially because his profession was very specialized and a similar career path I was pursuing. I remember thinking, if an organization could dismiss you after twenty-seven years, what you really need to do throughout your career and in your life, is to create as much equity and value in yourself as possible. You truly need to value the work you are producing as much as the organization is valuing from your efforts.

I then made the bold decision to change majors, because when I looked into what a genetic engineering degree would get me, it was a very specialized career just like my dad’s. So I thought that would be a bad idea. I went to the career counseling office and asked them for guidance selecting another major, after focusing for three years on genetic engineering. They advised me to switch to psychology. It was more general and seemed like it could open more doors for me than genetic engineering.  The career counseling office was amazing. When it was time to graduate I told them I didn't have money for graduate school at the time and that I needed a job right after graduation. I asked them what kind of jobs I could do with my degree and they put me through a series of tests that suggested a management position, saying, “You are a prime candidate for a great manager.” But what is a twenty-one-year-old supposed to do with that? I didn't have any experience in management, so I just started applying for any job that had a management training program. One of them was Cigna Health Insurance. They have the most practical training program that teaches you how to be a great people leader. So for four years, That’s what I did. I went from managing a team of twenty to managing a day and a night shift of six hundred people. I learned a ton about people: their motivations, how to manage them, how to work through issues, and who I should be as a leader. Then I decided to move to Seattle with my boyfriend and started looking for other opportunities. Tech was already starting to be big even in the 1990's. So I started working for a company called Aldus, which was eventually bought by Adobe. That's how I got into technology. The only "in" I really had was managing people, operations, and support teams so I went in managing customer support and operations teams. After four years with Adobe, I moved to Microsoft.


My objective, because of my experience with my dad, was to learn as much about all the facets of running a company as I could. That way, at any point in time, if I decided I wanted to do something else or if the company decided I didn't belong there anymore, I could walk out the door. I would still feel great that I had a lot of skills that I could apply in a lot of different fields. My primary objective has been to never become a subject matter expert. That’s opposite of what a lot of people have done. In my past jobs, whenever I had found myself in a position where everyone was looking to me for answers, I always thought to myself, "Oh, I guess it's time for me to take another job!” As a result, I've crossed over into six different disciplines at Microsoft. One of the great things about the company is that it’s not hard to do that. When you have a core set of skills, the company is willing to take a risk and let you move into an area completely different than what you've done before, as long as you're willing to take that risk yourself. I started in Operations, moved into Customer Marketing then did some Partner Marketing, and competitive recruit campaigns. From there I moved into Enterprise Services and helped our enterprise consultants repackage their IP and their engagement. We developed a business model where we repackaged that IP and created some solution accelerators. I created readiness programs for both our consultants as well as our partners, and eventually moved into our US subsidiary, where I learned about our sales teams and took on a role for licensing sales and marketing. This was a pivotal moment in our history where we were moving from consumer-packaged licensing into enterprise licensing. We built-out our licensing specialist channels and our large account resellers. With that, I helped define the software assurance value propositions and our enterprise agreement structure for about five years.

After that I asked myself, “What’s next? What haven’t I learned?” I ended up moving into the business group because I hadn't learned how to build a product. I hadn't learned engineering. I jumped into product management to figure out the value of the Windows client in the enterprise agreement, which was a big conundrum back then in the early 2000's. I created the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack. I enabled several acquisitions with Microsoft and brought them together into this suite of products that complimented what the Windows client was and how it worked with Windows Server and System Center. I was promoted to run all of our Windows clients in the commercial product management team. I led the team through the development and successful adoption of Windows 7. Four years later, when we were going to release Windows 8, I recognized it wasn’t going to be a highly adopted enterprise product. The next three years were not going to be a very exciting three years for me professionally. So I decided to take a job back in the US subsidiary running our Cloud and Enterprise business. Azure at the time was a very small incubation product with ten million dollars in sales, so we needed to figure out how we were going to expand that growth. I took over the P&L business with Window Server, Systems Center, SQL, and this little Azure product to figure out how we could fill an ecosystem and drive marketing campaigns, awareness, and direct business while reconditioning our sales teams to think about services. I did that for another few years and then an old manager of mine came back onto the partner team, reached out and said, “Hey, we need to reboot the ecosystem.” He was right. I also saw this as a huge need when I was doing the same for our Cloud and Enterprise business. So I told him I was happy to come over and figure out how we could create an ecosystem that goes around our new business rather than our old business. My whole career has been focused on start-up projects; things we needed to do at Microsoft, where we saw a need but didn't really know how to solve it. Someone needed to come over and take risks to tackle these problems. That’s what I love to do, I love to take on new challenges and just figure it out.


There are so many. The thing is, sometimes people don’t see the opportunities because they think you have to be able to code and build a product. But there are so many tech jobs around running a business where what you're selling and what you're building is the technology. Looking at the world ahead, I don’t think there will be a business that doesn't involve technology. Today, I'm working with farmers and IoT devices that allow them to farm better. It’s weird to think farming is moving towards technology. But the industry can’t afford not to. Across industries, business leaders are re-thinking the business model of the business. How do you think about the brand? How do you think about marketing it? How do you think about selling it? Who are your customers? How do you create great customer experiences? How do you create scale mechanisms to reach your customers in your market (which is where partners come in)? How do you run finance around that? How do you make sure the people you're hiring are growing and hiring other great people? People management, leadership, HR systems; these are all questions you need to answer to successfully run an organization. And they’re all tech jobs. I think we can do a better job helping our young people understand these jobs are everywhere. I had a student from the University of Michigan job shadow me one time. She said she learned so much in that short amount of time that it helped her define her career goals. I believe in mentorship programs and job shadow programs to help students understand that these jobs are available and to help them dream of these careers.


There's a lot of things I learned while working part-time for three and a half years while my kids were toddlers. First, you don't have to go part time and give up twenty-five percent of your salary just to have a decent balance. Second, it's all about setting boundaries and knowing what you're willing to do and what is non-negotiable for you. Be very clear with people to set the right expectations. I think there's a lot of fear around doing that. But what I found is that the clearer you are about setting those boundaries, the more respect and credibility you earn from your colleagues. I also think you're much more productive when you have those personal deadlines. When you give yourself more time, things take more time. Third, I’ve learned that 100% doesn't always exist. You can't always expect to achieve 100%. For most things, when you get to 80% that’s usually good enough. The other 20% isn’t always worth it.


My very first manager at Cigna was a key role model for me. She was a nurse who had come into this office position because they needed people who could look at the claims and actually perform medical evaluations on medical necessity. It was amazing to me that she was a nurse and was also running the claims office. On top of that, she was a single mom and one of the most patient people I had ever met. She had high expectations and could give you hard feedback. But you’d still be smiling at the end of the conversation. She had a growth mindset and was very empowering. I learned a lot about how to be a good coach, and what real leadership meant. She showed me honesty and transparency was very important. I’ve kept in touch with her throughout my career and have had multiple meetings with her. She continues to mentor me. Another key role model for me has been my friend Erin, who is a very strong leader at Microsoft. She's on the engineering side and helps me form a good, balanced view of both life and the business, which helps me understand where people are coming from. From a career standpoint, it’s really nice having someone close, but far enough away to be able to coach you through difficult situations.


One of my absolute favorites is Brene Brown's book Daring Greatly. It’s about stepping out, taking risks, being vulnerable, and doing your best everyday. She's pretty remarkable and I love her message; you don't have to be someone different or do things differently. You can be the best version of you and do what you do best. It's a really inspirational book.

Another favorite is Win Forever: Live, Work, and Play Like a Champion by Pete Carol, the coach of the Seattle Seahawks. He has a whole course on “winning forever” that I was lucky enough to participate in through Microsoft. He ran us through the importance of positive thinking and positive coaching, expecting the best of yourself, giving yourself grace for your mistakes, and just going out and doing better every day. One of my key takeaways was this: at the end of the day, make an internal highlight reel, similar to reviewing the plays that worked in the game. I used to do a lowlight reel. On my way home, I would think of all the things I didn't get through in the day, or all the conversations that didn't go right; all the things I could have done better. I learned that’s just not helpful. All it did was reinforce the negatives. What you need to do is build a highlight reel and think about all the things that did go well and learn from the things that maybe didn't go the way you’d hoped. Then you can think about how your day can be structured tomorrow to do even better.

Another book I love is called Essentialism by Greg McKeown. It’s awesome. It’s all about work-life balance and focusing on the things that matter, while letting go of the noise and not letting yourself get distracted by the unimportant things.

We also have Jae Allerd who leads a company called Simple Intentions come and lead mindfulness sessions for my team.


Mentoring others is extremely important to me. It inspires me and gives me energy. Another great thing that I learned from Pete Carol's course is to develop a personal statement, and know who you are. You should be able to describe your personal philosophy on life in twenty-five words or less. When I challenged myself to do that, I found that coaching, mentoring, and helping people helps me learn and grow and gives me a lot of energy. When people ask me to coffee or ask to shadow me, I always say yes. There are three reasons: I love doing it. It expands my network. And I always learn something new. Probably thirty percent of the time, I continue connecting with them month after month or year after year. I see such great changes and growth in these people. It’s as rewarding as watching your own children grow. I love feeling like I've been a part of their growth.

Another way I try to help others is through women mentoring groups I’ve launched to help empower women to make sure they have a seat at the table and can contribute in meaningful ways. We are also very involved in Women In Technology (WIT) and helping the partner community increase their diversity and help women grow in their careers.


We have a lot of simplification underway both for our partners and for our customers. I have seen Microsoft do a lot of new things each year, before cleaning other things up, which can pile up each year and create a lot of complexity. I’m really excited about our current approach. We're making an active effort to hit “file new” on a bunch of backend systems and tools, assets, and catalogs. That will simplify things and get rid of the extra noise. I think that will make an enormous difference. We're taking a much stronger “One Microsoft” approach. Satya Nadella has made a huge difference in the organization. When we went through the challenges with the Department of Justice (DOJ), it really divided the organization by necessity. It’s taken a long time, but we needed to bring it all back together. Satya has been the driving force in making that happen, so we can function and think as one organization. I'm really excited about the new collaboration and connectedness we are delivering throughout the organization. Along with new customer focus, that collaboration enables us to create new end-to-end partner experiences and end-to-end customer experiences.

Something else I’m very engaged in is the work that Kurt DelBene is doing for the company. He’s working on our own digital transformation and relooking at the way we do everything; the way we support ourselves. We're creating a new north star about how things could and should be done, bringing digital together for the company. We were the epitome of distributed computing. We took that to the extreme within Microsoft and everything was built on their own system and everyone had built their own thing. But this work is bringing everything back together so we can simplify and eliminate the noise. Our main focus is to create connected experiences and I’m very excited about it.

Trailblazers show girls the world of science and tech is cool – and needs them

By Deborah Bach as written on
One day in her senior year of high school, Cristina Mittermeier sat on the floor with her classmates listening to a man talk about career opportunities in marine sciences while she looked up, transfixed, at the otherworldly images he showed on a screen.
Mittermeier knew right then that she wanted a career focused on the ocean. But her hometown of Cuernavaca, in central Mexico, was nowhere near the water, and there were no female scientists around who could offer her guidance. Mittermeier’s father wanted her to be an accountant, like him. Her grandmother wanted her to find a husband. Her mother, a psychologist, told her she should follow her dream.
Mittermeier couldn’t have imagined that three decades later, she’d be standing before a room of girls at the Microsoft store in Bellevue, Washington, encouraging them to consider a future in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

Girls need to know that there are a lot of women who have blazed a trail for them, and we are just waiting to see what they can do.

“When I look at this room, I recognize myself as a young girl,” she said to the standing-room-only crowd of more than 50 girls. “Growing up in Mexico, we didn’t have a lot of opportunities. It was so hard for me to imagine doing all these things.”

Cristina Mittermeier tells the young audience about her work as a National Geographic photographer as her partner, Paul Nicklen, looks on.
Mittermeier and her partner, Paul Nicklen, were at the store for Microsoft’s #MakeWhatsNext workshop, part of a broader campaign aimed at engaging young girls in STEM. As part of the #MakeWhatsNext campaign, Microsoft’s Global Ads team initiated a partnership with National Geographic for the March 18 event, one of six at Microsoft stores around the U.S. featuring women working in STEM fields — from a bioinformatics CEO to an astrophysicist and a young volcanologist in training. The event included a Facebook livestream with Jennifer Adler, a marine biologist and National Geographic Young Explorer, and presentations from the speakers, followed by an hour of codinginstruction.
Mittermeier and Nicklen are renowned National Geographic photographers and conservationists who have traveled to more than 100 countries and worked in some of the remotest corners of the planet. They are also the co-founders of SeaLegacy, a Canada-based organization launched in 2015 that aims to combine the pair’s award-winning images with storytelling to raise awareness about climate change and protect marine ecosystems around the world. They told the audience at the workshop that the planet needs the contributions women in STEM can offer.
“We need great scientists out there like yourselves understanding oceans,” Nicklen said. “Half of the air we breathe comes from oceans.”

Our whole society loses out when a significant proportion of the world’s brainpower is not engaged in creating those solutions.

With the pair’s stunning color images as a backdrop, Mittermeier detailed her circuitous career path. Afraid to leave home after high school, she enrolled at a university in her hometown and studied communications for a year. She was getting straight A’s but wasn’t feeling challenged. So Mittermeier swallowed her fear and made the decision to move away and study science.
Because there was no major in marine biology available at the time in Mexico, Mittermeier got a degree in biochemical engineering. Her studies exposed her to industrial fishing and commercial food production, which cemented her passion for conservation.

“I did a 180 as soon as I left university,” she said.
Mittermeier hoped to become a scientist and get a Ph.D., but she married soon after finishing university and had three children. Her husband at the time was a scientist and anthropologist who studied tribal communities, and Mittermeier borrowed his camera and starting taking photos in the field. Her work caught the attention of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, which asked to include some of her images in an exhibition on Amazonian tribes. Mittermeier has now edited 24 photographic books and been named among the World’s Top 40 Most Influential Outdoor Photographers by Outdoor magazine.

“When I was starting my career, so many people said to me, ‘Don’t do that. Why don’t you become this or this instead?’” she said. “I’m so glad I persevered.”
Mittermeier is a role model for girls considering a career in STEM, but research points to a dearth of women like her as a primary reason more girls don’t enter those fields. Little early exposure to STEM subjects, lack of confidence in their own abilities and a masculine culture that discourages girls are also cited as factors. Just 6.7 percent of female college students in the U.S. graduate with STEM degrees, according to, and women currently hold fewer than 25 percent of STEM jobs in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Microsoft has launched several initiatives aimed at reducing that gender gap. The company partners with nonprofits such as Girls Who Code and to provide computer science classes and coding workshops, and Microsoft’s DigiGirlz initiative connects high school girls with Microsoft employees and other industry leaders through various events. Microsoft also works with policymakers to ensure that students have access to computer science classes.
Corporate Vice President Mary Snapp is the head of Microsoft Philanthropies, which launched in 2015 with a focus on providing technology to young people, particularly girls and underserved populations. Women’s representation in STEM is critical for reasons beyond equity, Snapp says.
“We need everyone to help to solve the big challenges our economies and our societies are facing,” she says. “Our whole society loses out when a significant proportion of the world’s brainpower is not engaged in creating those solutions. We want to encourage girls to stay in STEM so they can solve the problems they care about most, from finding solutions to climate change to curing cancer and beyond.”
Constance Adams knows firsthand how powerful the influences discouraging girls from STEM can be. Adams, who was the featured speaker at the March 18 workshop in Troy, Michigan, is a space architect and National Geographic Emerging Explorer who has designed habitations for Mars and helped design several space shuttles.

Constance Adams talks to girls at the #MakeWhatsNext workshop in Michigan.
About a decade ago, Adams was passing a gift shop at the Johnson Space Center in Houston shortly before Halloween and noticed a child-sized replica of the distinctive orange launch entry suits worn by space shuttle crews. Delighted, she picked up one for her young daughter. Adams had been raising her as a single mother, taking her on work trips around the world, and the little girl was familiar with Adams’ work.
So Adams was shocked when, after presenting her daughter with the suit, she burst into tears.
“She said, ‘I can’t wear that — that’s for a boy,’” Adams recalls. “I was absolutely floored. If that child, growing up attached to my hip, had absorbed that narrative that astronauts weren’t women, wow. Somehow the girls really are not getting the picture that they have these options.”
Photo of two girls looking at a computer together
Adams promptly arranged to bring her daughter to lunch with her friend Pamela Melroy, then a NASA astronaut. Adams’ daughter came away with an autographed photo and a new perspective on who could be an astronaut, but the experience stuck with Adams.
“I became much more conscious about doubling down on promoting STEM for women,” she says.
Despite the factors working against girls’ interest in STEM, Snapp believes the gender gap can and will be overcome.
“We’re already seeing some positive change. There is growing interest in computer science programs, for example, at the university level — in fact, some university science programs are having trouble keeping up with demand,” she says.
“And that growing interest, according to the universities we’re hearing from, is also coming from women. That’s one of the many reasons that I’m optimistic about the future for women in STEM.”
Back at the Bellevue workshop earlier this month, girls gathered at tables after the presentation and got to work on a coding exercise. Shilpa Asrani watched as her 7-year-old daughter, Trishaa Khanna, and two other girls huddled around a computer. Asrani said Trishaa was exposed to coding through her older brother and has a natural interest in science, but she thinks popular culture must do a better job of signaling to girls that they belong in STEM fields.
“I think the media needs to focus more on girls,” she said. “That’s what needs to happen.”
Trishaa said she liked hearing Mittermeier and Nicklen talk about wild animals and their environments because she hopes to become a veterinarian and work in a zoo.
“That’s my dream job. I want to be a vet, a zoo helper who takes care of the new baby animals who are born,” she said.
Photo of girls working at computers
Kyra Mohr, 10, was intrigued by the chance to do some coding, which she considers fun. She hasn’t decided what she wants to do for a career yet, but thinks it will involve technology and space.
“I like space, planets and how humans have evolved to know how to go into space,” she said.
For Mittermeier, the workshop was an opportunity to provide the encouragement she wishes she’d had as a young girl.
“If I had imagined myself in these roles, it probably wouldn’t have taken me this long to get where I am,” she said. “Girls need to know that there are a lot of women who have blazed a trail for them, and we are just waiting to see what they can do.”
