Birch Bay man opens low-cost computer repair business

By Tara Nelson

Geek squads step aside.

Birch Bay resident Kevin Ketterman is practicing computer repair on the cheap.

The long-time youth and music teacher for various churches moved to the area four years ago from Yakima and opened Birch Bay Computers in September, servicing PC computers, offering phone consultations and assisting with software installation.
Ketterman brings 13 years of computer experience to his business and moved here after he saw Birch Bay and Blaine needed a computer repair specialist.

Although Ketterman said he does not work on Macintosh computers or assist with the use of software programs, he does provide low-cost phone consultations, drop-off repairs, virus removal, fresh hardware and software installations and upgrades.
A self-proclaimed “bi-vocational minister of music and youth,” Ketterman said he also plans to pursue his passion for teaching through various churches in the area. He earned his bachelor of arts degree in 1979 from the University of Central Missouri and his master of arts degree in religious education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary School in Fort Worth, Texas.
