Zach Harvey

Zach Harvey Featured Student
Bio

Hello everyone! My name is Zach Harvey. I was born and raised in Kansas City and have spent the last 10 years of my life wearing a variety of hats professionally. I’ve done everything from managing a Waffle House to assembling, repairing, and fitting durable medical equipment for patients. My last job was a retail sales position at a motorcycle dealership, and while I enjoyed interacting with customers and educating them on all of the new gear and performance parts, I felt it was time in my life to “level up” and change careers.

Deborah Reed

Deborah Reed Featured Student

BIO

Hi everyone, I’m Deborah Reed. Most people call me Dee. I married my high school sweetheart twenty years ago and have grown with him ever since. Love of a challenge has given me a steady, yet eclectic work history.  I spent close to ten years working with children, first in a daycare, and later as an aide in an elementary school. I think it’s important to be a good role model and keep a positive attitude.  I’ve also run my own business as a traveling massage therapist. Most recently, I spent the last seven years with Nebraska Furniture Mart, a wonderful company. I started in sales and moved into merchandising, and I was even asked to move to Dallas to help open their new flagship store.

Kevin Gutauskas Featured Student
Bio

Before deciding to attend Centriq I was a Parts and Inventory Control Analyst with most of my working career focused around customer service and retail sales. Finding people’s needs and coming up with solutions for those needs or problems is something I have always really enjoyed. I have a passion for tech, always trying to get my hands on the newest and greatest devices being it phones, audio equipment, gaming rigs, you name it. When a friend or family member was looking to upgrade something, I was the one they came to – it was fun for me.
