Jasmine Mina
Commercial Account Manager

Jasmine brings in-depth technical experience to her role with IST’s commercial account managers. She loved the woman-owned founder idea, and when she learned IST was locally owned and operated, she was all in.


Jasmine’s background is full of both administrative and customer service success, including a stint in independent contracting for a computer forensics investigation firm.  Her patience and penchant for detail also helped her with a role in evidentiary law review, but she felt the most impactful while supporting the account management team for a large IT firm that specialized in cloud platforms and digital engineering. That success led her to seek out a technology focused account management role for herself where she could support executive teams with their critical technology decisions, and nothing’s more critical than security.


Jasmine is a foodie at heart, and she has a passion for cooking and reading. She loves experimenting in the kitchen!  She’s also a pet lover with an adopted tuxedo kitten (Charlie), and an avid Hawaiian Humane Society supporter.  Jasmine loves to travel and she’s also a sky diver.  Growing up in Hawaii, she’s never experienced snow so one her dreams is to sky dive over the Swiss Alps.

Employee Engagement Champion

I've been at IST since 2016.  My job is happiness in the workplace.  I'm sure I have more responsibilities like lizard hunting and snack eating, but hey I'm a dog.

I take my job very seriously.  I'm pretty sure I'm the only thing holding this company together.
