Matthew is quite the character. As one of the founding members of the company he has had a hand in breaking or designing most of the website back-end systems, front-end pages, and the marketing efforts at RocketCert. Even to this day, he spends a portion of his time hunting down website bugs and errors. Hopefully he had a hand in you reading this page. He and Drew work tirelessly to bring Toms ambitious visions to life.
He is crazy about his kids and talks about them constantly - telling stories about taking them camping, teaching them to cook, and watching them grow way too quickly. Highly regarded by his wife as the funniest man on the planet, his humor is only part of his impressive repertoire of skills. His career has led him to restaurants, insurance, and real estate. His RocketCert journey has greatly increased his knowledge of web development, marketing, and building a web-based business as a part of a remote team.
If you've ever been to the 423, you already know who Vance is. He's the coolest guy to ever walk through the doors of RocketCert. He's a better golfer than you. Your kids look up to him, and your parents wish you were more like him. Bring him to a party and watch all of your friends turn into his friends. He's the kind of guy to gets invited to weddings based solely on his swagger. It isn't uncommon for people to stop and ask him for his autograph while he's out grocery shopping. That extra batch of cookies your grandma made? It's for Vance.
If you think Bob is the coolest Vance you've ever heard of, think again. This guy oozes class, and with the right amount of luck, some might drip onto you. Watch out world, Vance from Chattanooga is here.
Ashley is the bubbly personality you'll meet when you call our office or start a live chat. With the insight of a contractor, the patience of a mother, and the problem-solving skills of a start-up employee, Ashley has proven herself to be an invaluable asset to the RocketCert team. She is the driving force behind our bookstore; ordering and shipping hundreds of books each month. If you've received a package from us, odds are Ashley packed it up!
With over a decade of customer service experience, Ashley is constantly finding new and improved ways to make sure we are meeting the needs of our customers. When she isn't keeping us in line at the office, she's either on the river with her son and husband or at the pet store playing with puppies. We are truly blessed to have such an incredible player on our side.
Acting as our Coordinator of Chaos, Alyson arrives each day ready for a challenge. She brings order to it with decades of operational and management experience.

Originally a Chattanooga native, she now resides in Knoxville. At home, she goes by “Mom” to 5 and “Gaga” to 3 precious little ones. She also enjoys challenging herself in the kitchen with intensive recipes inspired by her time living in Southeast Asia.
