We believe leadership is not necessarily a role – it is a set of skills and self-awareness that one can learn, improve, and build upon as they advance in their careers.

We are proud to have a leadership team that has discovered their personal core values, bring their whole selves to work each day, and continue to develop and improve their leadership skills.

We are always available and our doors don’t shut.

We Are Metronome

University of Pittsburgh
Favorite Song: “Sourthern Style” by Darius Rucker

Our CEO, Co-Founder, and fearless leader, Jen, sees Metronome as a big family and cares for it as such. She is inspired by the energy and passion our employees exemplify each day which also spurs her to want to grow our Metronome family by adding new Pulsers. Her skills in attention to detail, organization, critical thinking, and delegation balance out our inimitable executive leadership team.

Jen has a gentle and nurturing soul. Before forming Metronome with her husband, Virgil, she was a registered nurse with a passion for fixing any issues she encountered. She loves to cook and has a dream of going back to school to learn all about the culinary arts.

Above all else, Jen values her family. Her ideal day would be simple – she’d spend time with her husband and three children, cook a nice meal, and read a good book. Her ultimate goal in life is to see her children grow into good, compassionate people and eventually have children of their own.

Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania
Favorite Song: “Sweet Disposition” by The Temper Trap

Our VP of “all things Proposals” Pat draws from hands-on technical, management, field-site operations, and business development experience to orchestrate and create compelling proposals to generate new business for all Pulsers. She was drawn to Metronome because of its strategic direction and technical expertise. More importantly, it’s the culture – where everyone’s voice matters and people step up and work together to achieve success for our internal and external customers every day.

Managing and writing proposals is a dynamic, fast-paced, deadline-driven process that takes a village to complete. Pat taps into her creativity, problem-solving and organizational skills, conducting research, learning new things, and building and fostering working relationships with every person involved in the process, resulting in compliant, complete, quality products.

Pat and her husband made a much-needed life change when they moved from Southern California to Idaho. Throttling back on the pace of life allowed them to focus on the important things – each other and their families. When her brain gets full, Pat puts on her hiking shoes and makes her way up the street to the trailhead, disappearing into the foothills to soak up the energy from the earth, the sky, the flora, and fauna – smiling along the way.
