Boyer & Associates is pleased to announce the addition of a new consultant to our Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 Business Central team. Janet Gallia will join the Boyer team on Sept. 17.
Gallia has more than 35 years of experience working in the technical industry, specifically with Dynamics SL and NAV.
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Gallia started out in her early 20s working as a secretarial dispatcher for Ohio-based NCR Corporation. One day her supervisor overheard her walking a client through a cash register fix over the phone and suggested she study to become an engineer. She passed the course with flying colors and was soon in the field repairing registers for the company.
“It was so much fun,” she said. She’d always enjoyed repairing her own televisions with replacement parts from Radio Shack so the job change was a natural shift for the young single mother.
She excelled at the work and was eventually promoted to instructor, relocating to the company’s headquarters as one of three women on a team of 150 at NCR’s technical institute. She moved with the company again in 1989, this time to St. Louis, Mo. with her two boys, Sean and John.
In addition to her 14 years at NCR, Gallia also spent 11 years with Sikich Technology Group, an accounting and technology services firm in Missouri. Most recently, she was the Advisor System Architect at DXC Technology, formerly called Tribridge.
“I like solving problems and I love documenting and training and just doing what I can to help someone achieve a goal, and I also love mentoring,” Gallia said.
“It’s going to be a wonderful mind meld of all of our experiences and I think we’re going to be able to provide the client with the very best.” — Janet Gallia, new Boyer consultant.
At Boyer, Gallia will be a consultant working from her St. Louis home for both Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV clients. Gallia was impressed with the integrity and intelligence of the Boyer staff and is excited to work with a team bent on excellence.
“It’s going to be a wonderful mind meld of all of our experiences and I think we’re going to be able to provide the client with the very best,” she said.
For her part, Gallia has a strong background in project management, implementation, consulting, report writing and more for distribution, manufacturing and nonprofit organizations. She has spent 15 years working within Dynamics SL and another 11 with Dynamics NAV. She has a bachelor’s degree from Provident University, several SL and NAV certifications and is a past president of the Solomon (SL) users group.
Gallia said she often gets so engrossed in her work that her husband of 15 years, John, bought her a dog to give her an excuse to leave her office. Now, her loyal teacup Maltese, Sophia, prompts her every couple of hours to get up and stretch for a few minutes.
Outside of work, Gallia loves to cook, sew and attend Nineteenth Century reenactments with her husband. Gallia makes their costumes and she and John participate in pirate reenactments and festivals centered around steampunk, a genre that incorporates Victorian era designs and steam-powered technology with science fiction time travel.
