Joyce Kane, Owner/COO
After over 30+ successful years in corporate IT and Telecommunications Management for firms such as Verizon, USAirways and PNC, Joyce traveled the road to entrepreneurship after encountering the U-turn of a layoff from her corporate position. She launched Cybertary Pittsburgh, a virtual administrative firm that provides business support services to small business owners, solopreneurs and individuals, in September of 2009.
Joyce is a native of Philadelphia, but has adopted the city of Pittsburgh and most especially its Steelers, as home. She holds an undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from St. Joseph’s University (Philadelphia) and an MBA from the Katz Graduate School of Business Administration, University of Pittsburgh.
Throughout her professional career, her ability to mentor technical staff members and build consensus on achieving common goals led to improvements on project delivery and employee and customer satisfaction. Her exemplary customer service focus, coupled with relationship management skills, strong human resource management and fundamental business expertise, led to a successful career across disparate industries.
Her passions include gardening and cooking; she is a certified Master Gardener and certified Personal Chef. She has tackled several items on her Bucket List, including reading all of Jane Austen’s works, but many remain. One of the benefits of entrepreneurship is the ability to set your own course and reach the destiny you choose.
