Our Team

Our team delivers a wealth of technical expertise and industry knowledge to meet your veterinary image storage, retrieval, and transfer needs.

CEO and Co-Founder — Jason Otis, BSEE

Jason is an Army veteran who specialized in satellite communications. With a BSEE from Purdue University and over 20 years experience leading software development efforts, he is the architect of Asteris products and services. Jason lives in Monument, Colorado with his family and can often be found mountain biking, hiking, and camping in the Rocky Mountains. He is also the drummer for his church and an "Old Guy Bar Band", VFW member, Boy Scout Leader, and brewer of craft beer – the "hoppier" the better!

Operations Manager — Angela Otis, BSME, MBA, Technology Management

Angela has both a BSME and an MBA in technology management and has spent 16 years in the field with financial/insurance industries. She spends her at Asteris days guiding – and continually optimizing – the overall operations of Asteris, with a little help from her two Golden Retriever office-mates. She enjoys spending time with Asteris CEO Jason Otis (which is easy to do since they both spend a lot of time at Asteris!) and her two sons. She also loves cooking and yoga, although not at the same time.

Chief Sales Officer — Erik Berger, B.S., Business Management

With a background in sales and customer service, Erik came to Asteris from an industry leader in diagnostic imaging equipment where he developed a passion for assisting veterinarians with their imaging-related needs. As someone who is NOT a "techie," Erik enjoys being able to provide a simple but yet sophisticated software solution that makes life better for pets and veterinarians alike. A San Diego resident, Erik is married and has three daughters and two dogs. He also enjoys eating great food that keeps him a little "fluffy" – just like his dogs!

IT Operations and Customer Relationship Management — Julie Carros, B.S., Management

Whether she is providing operational support or developing new products, Julie is focused primarily on supporting our customers' needs as leader of our Technical Support Team and Application Development efforts. She has 20 years of experience in Information Technology (IT), including several roles at Progressive Insurance where she led and managed IT Services and Resources on various platforms in Application Development, Operations, and Engineering. A resident of Colorado Springs, she is a huge dog lover who also enjoys hiking, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

Customer Relations/Support — David Corlew

David handles the daily business operations of Asteris and will probably be your first contact when you have a service or technical question.
