July Spotlight: Jennie Sparks 
Absolute Communication Solutions

The Greater Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to present Jennie Sparks of Absolute Communication Solutions as our Ambassador Spotlight for July 2017.

As a way to get out of her shell and get involved in the community, Jennie joined the Chamber Ambassadors in December 2016.  Jennie is warm, friendly and quick to laugh, which is why we value her as our Committee Co-Chair for Ribbon Cutting ceremonies.   “I enjoy celebrating milestones for current members and learning more about new businesses and how we, as a community, can support them!”

Jennie is born and raised in Nevada County and considers herself lucky to stay close to her family while she and her husband Eric raise their 3-year-old son in the Grass Valley area.  She has enjoyed watching the Grass Valley area grow and develop into what it is today.  In her past, she has worked in a dental office, a Gastroenterology office and a real estate office, but did not find her true passion until she joined ACS 10 years ago when the company began to grow.  “As an Operations Manager, I saw a need for an HR position.  The more ways that I learned to support our staff, the more I enjoyed what I was doing!”  Inspired to take the next step, Jennie began to study for months and recently passed her SHRM-CP, one of the most widely taken HR exams in the world!  Now, as a Certified Professional Human Resource Manager, Jennie still finds that some of her best practices come from other business professionals that she has met at Chamber Ribbon Cuttings and Mixers.  With her Chamber Membership, she has created new friendships and has found great resources with business members that she would not normally encounter in her day-to-day operations.

Absolute Communication Solutions was started in 2000 and supplies all of your connection needs such as business telephones, networking, fiber, structured cabling, cameras, wifi and more.  They are grateful that many of their customers are local Grass Valley businesses.  Jennie is proud that as ACS grows, that they still manage to keep a family like an environment on the job and in the office.  Outside of work, and when she is not volunteering at a Chamber function, Jennie loves to spend time in her yard with her family or in the craft room that her husband built for her.  She is an avid sewer and enjoys making her own clothes.  She finds creating her own patterns both rewarding and challenging!

In her short time as a Chamber Ambassador, Jennie has proven herself as an asset to both our team and the community!  When it comes to supporting local and or new businesses, Jennie’s enthusiasm is contagious!  Her positivity is motivating and makes a great impact on our Ribbon Cutting Events.  Jennie has proven herself as a necessary member of the Greater Grass Valley Chamber Ambassadors and we are so appreciative of her involvement!  You can contact Jennie at Absolute Communication Solutions at 530-271-0332, x203 or by email: [email protected]
