Abraham “Ebby” Sabbagh, President
Born in Aleppo, Syria and raised in Beirut Lebanon, Abraham “Ebby” Sabbagh relocated to Arizona in 1990 with his parents and brother. He began his career in the United States as a volunteer and then a staff member at the American Red Cross in Phoenix. In 1992, he became one of the first MIS staff members for a local Boys & Girls Club in Arizona.

Driven by his passion for helping others, Ebby acknowledged the need to provide quality information technology services to the non-profit sector as well as small businesses. Fittingly, he applied his education in Computer Science to help build state-of-the-art technology access centers for at-risk youth. Ebby’s expertise and work has been recognized nationally by Boys & Girls Clubs of America and he is a founding member of the National Youth Technology Advisory Committee.

Mary Beth Sabbagh, VP of Administration & HR
Mary Beth was born and raised in Ohio. She received her undergraduate degree in Sociology and Anthropology from Denison University. She obtained her Masters Degree in Social Work, with an emphasis in counseling, from Ohio State University. Upon graduating, she worked with an agency, on a contractual basis, compiling information for a statewide study on child care needs for the state of Ohio.

Getting tired of the dreary (and cold) winters of Ohio, she moved to Arizona during the sunny and hot days of summer. She briefly worked at the Red Cross in their emergency services division and was contacted by a social service agency in Mesa, Arizona. She became a Case Management Director for a transitional housing program for homeless families with children, assisting in their self-sufficiency. She worked at the agency for several years before starting NPCE with her husband, Abraham. In the initial days of the business, she also was an assistant teacher for a Montessori program, working with pre-school through kindergarten age children.

She now works full-time for NPCE, Inc., handling the accounting and Human Resources aspects of the company; unlike the other team members, Mary Beth is not a “tech junkie”. She is more comfortable “crunching” numbers, developing policies and procedures and making sure the internal operations of the Company run smoothly.  She also juggles the sports, music, and other extra-curricular activities of their two children.

Tyler Koble, Senior Technical Support Engineer
Tyler was born in Rugby, North Dakota and then was quickly transplanted to Western Washington State. Early on in his youth Tyler was introduced to technology’s seemingly limitless potential. With technology giants such as Microsoft and Nintendo in his back yard Tyler took advantage of the many opportunities he had to devour information and experiences in the field. As the top of his class he was approached by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County to work on an upcoming project to expand technology for Club members.

By age 16 Tyler was managing a small lab at Boys & Girls Club, the very same Club he attended as a youth. Seeing the impact of technology on the youth served he began to take on his hobby with new zeal. With the heavy growth of the organization Tyler began to fill an increasingly integral role and soon became Director of Technology for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County.

His depth of experience and love for Technology are just a few of the things that make him such a perfect fit for the position of Technical Support Engineer. In this position he is responsible for managing and maintaining networks, servers and workstations as well as leading and contributing to many other special projects. In his free time, Tyler can be found enjoying Washington State’s many fantastic parks. He also takes great pleasure in giving back to his community and appreciates his friends dearly.

Moses Zarate, Technical Support Engineer
Moses was born and raised in San Jose, California. His early life was filled with training by various persons his mother had met as the two lived off the grid after the attempt on her life. Much of his training concentrated on the areas of weaponry, computer technology, and espionage. When Moses’ mother was shot and captured after trying to blow up a computer factory in the early 1990s, Moses was placed into foster care and told that his mother's stories of the future were merely delusions. He was unable to cope with life in suburbia and rebelled, edging towards delinquency, turning into a young gangster and receiving a police record (which included trespassing, shoplifting, disturbing the peace, and vandalism) by the time he was 10 years old. His foster parents, Todd and Janelle Voight, found themselves unable to deal with him, and were not surprised when a police officer showed up at their door asking to speak with Moses.

Moses’ life was changed in a matter of seconds, when a T-1000 came back from the year 2029, programmed to assassinate him. A T-800 (whom Moses later nicknamed "Uncle Bob") had also come back in time, this one programmed to protect him. Moses, now believing his mother's stories, used the T-800 to release his mother from the maximum security prison Pescadero State Hospital. The three then proceeded to seek out Miles Dyson, the would-be creator of the neural-net processor, in an attempt to stop Judgement Day from occurring. During their time together Moses bonded with the T-800, who became a friend and father figure to him. Once the T-1000 was destroyed along with all of Cyberdyne's research, the T-800 asks that it be destroyed also so that its technology would not be discovered and used by others. Since the T-800 is not capable of self-terminating, Moses had to watch as his mother activated the crane that slowly lowered the T-800 into a batch of molten steel.

In 2010 Moses began working for Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix. While he started as an Activity Leader he quickly moved up and also held the titles of Branch Assistant, Teen Assistant, and was one of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix's first Teen Coordinators. Married in November of 2012, Moses enjoys spending time with his wife and their dog. Moses joined NPCE on September of 2014. This allowed him to continue to expand his technical knowledge while still being able to be a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs movement. With his degree now completed, Moses looks forward to continuing his growth and development as a member of the NPCE family.

Garrett Dass, Technical Support Engineer
Garrett was born in Glendora, California and spent his younger years all over the SoCal area. In 2000 Garrett moved to Globe, Arizona to live with his grandmother and received his very own terrible computer. A passion for video games and playing on cheap technology drove him to figure out how to make the best of what he had.

After high school Garrett quickly realized the trap of the small town. He figured he'd join the Army for a short three years and get money for college and in order to get away. Six years later, in 2012, Garrett left the military with an honorable discharge and pursued his passion in technology.

Using the G.I. Bill he obtained his Bachelors of Science specializing in Network and Communications Management from DeVry University. Two weeks before graduation he was approached by the NPCE team and offered a position on their support staff. Thus began Garrett Dass' journey into the highly advanced field of turning things off and turning them on again.

In 2010 Audra began bringing her young children into the Sultan Branch of Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County. Wanting to be involved in her children's lives, Audra started volunteering wherever she was needed; from chaperoning field trips to answering the occasional technology question. When a job opening became available with NPCE that would allow Audra to do the work that she loved for an organization she strongly believed in, Boys and Girls Clubs, she jumped at the chance. Audra is now settling in nicely with the NPCE team and thoroughly enjoys her support calls to many of the various Boys & Girls Clubs organizations in Washington State.
