Clarice Marjaniemi
Clarice Marjaniemi Director of Operations
Clarice Marjaniemi is the Director of Operations for T3 Solutions Group. She ensures that our everyday activities run smoothly. Often recognized for her strong interpersonal and leadership skills, Clarice is organized, efficient, and motivated. You’ll get to know Clarice on the phone as she is often the first point of contact for our new and existing customers.

When we asked Clarice what she enjoyed most about her job, she responded without hesitation, “Helping our clients troubleshoot problems. Because AT&T is such a large organization, it can be difficult to know where to access information. I get to help our clients be successful.”

Clarice attended Northern Michigan University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship. While attending college, she was very involved in Business Professionals of America where she held leadership positions and won contests.

With such an unusual last name, we had to ask Clarice about the origin. “It’s Finnish,” she told us, “there’s a town in Finland called Marjaniemi. We’re not sure if we’re named after the town or the town is named after our family.”

Her family may be Finnish, but Clarice grew up in California before relocating to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Now living in lower Michigan, Clarice loves traveling to nearby lakes but could do without the winter wind chill factor of below 40 degrees. We don’t blame her.

Clarice enjoys volunteering in her community in places like the local homeless shelter, a local Clothing Closet. She clearly has a big heart.

In her spare time, Becky enjoys camping and fishing. “Fishing is my Zen,” she explained. “The minute I’m on the bank of a river all the stress leaves my body. No need for a massage when I can fish.”

Becky also loves to read. Mysteries and American Historical Biographies are among her favorite genres. She and her husband have one grown son and live in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Becky refers to herself as a mountain girl and states residing in Central California means she’s close to three National Parks and lots of fishing.
