The Team

Girard Jergensen
VP of Engineering

Girard and his wife Amy have two kids, no pets, and maintain a household minimum of two computers per person (not counting smart phones, tablets, Lego Mindstorm sets, programmable calculators or the abacus). Girard blames his wife for the kids, and she blames him for the computers. Girard and Amy homeschool their children and are active in their community and church. When he's not programming, playing video games, reading, or watching a movie, Girard is probably playing with the kids' Legos. Girard and his family also enjoy food (maybe a little too much), cooperative board games (except when they all lose), libraries (unless that one book is on hold), used bookstores (if they have a good selection), and sunscreen (for those times when they have to be outside when the flaming ball of doom is still up).

Joe Perez
Community Relations Manager

Joe was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. His father was in the Navy for several years and Joe was taught at an early age to work hard at everything, starting his first job at the age of 16 and working at Jimmy's Egg until he graduated high school in 2001. After high school he worked in customer service with UICI Marketing but in 2005 Joe got a position in technical support at Sprint and fell in love with the tech world. Joe joined da Vinci in 2013 in a support capacity and has expanded his role to become an expert software tester. He likes spending free time with his wife of seven years and their three children, working out at the gym, running at the park, or playing soccer with his friends.

Wes Veitch
Customer Care Specialist

Wes was raised in Fort Worth and studied the music business at Southern Nazarene University. After graduation he was hired by da Vinci as its first "people person" when the company had only 15 clients. When he's not answering your phone calls or emails, you can find him volunteering at church or with the ONE Campaign. Wes lives in Oklahoma City with his wife, daughters, and dogs.

Danyell Billups
Community Relations Associate

Danyell was born in Oklahoma City but has also lived in Arkansas, California and Arizona (it’s a long story). She has an Associate’s degree in Computer Networking and a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership. Her background includes several years of experience with the OK Medicaid program in the areas of electronic claims and community relations. When away from the office Danyell enjoys dancing, crocheting, shopping and movie nights with friends and family. She has been with da Vinci since 2013 and often wonders what she did wrong in a past life to end up surrounded by such bizarre coworkers.
