Born, raised, and living in Rochester my whole life. Married to Molly - the love of my life - for 32 years. We have 3 happy, healthy, and successful sons, a fantastic daughter in law, and a wonderful grandson! Proud to be working in only my second job since graduating from Notre Dame (GO IRISH!) in the 1970’s. Prior to joining the Desk Set, I worked for Price Waterhouse for 7 years in both Rochester and Nassau, Bahamas.   I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of the Desk Set since 2000.  I currently am both Sales and Office Manager and very much enjoy working with a fantastic sales force.  Co-workers have become like family – how lucky we are!!  We have a great Euchre team (trying to enlarge it) and on a personal note I have a son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter in Boston that I am blessed to see many times during the year.  Life is good!!!  

I have been with the Deskset team since 2008 and keep busy fulfilling our customer’s office furniture needs.  When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, going on camping excursions, hunting, fishing and playing volleyball.

I have over 18 years in sales experience and have been working in sales at the Desk Set since 2008. I love what I do! I have an eye for the aesthetic and enjoy working with our clients to provide them with suitable furniture needs. I was born and raised in Rochester and am the proud mother of 3 daughters and two fantastic grandchildren.   Originally from Buffalo, I am happy to stay in Rochester and be part of the Desk Set team. In sales and marketing, I enjoy every aspect of working with our clients to design ideal furnishings for their office. From space planning to picking out aesthetics, it’s always a good feeling in creating a better environment for success.   Born, raised, and living in Irondequoit, I've been a proud member of the Desk Set family since 2002. For 10 years I led our installation team, and have since been working in the sales and marketing departments.  This position allows me to apply my vast knowledge of furniture to offer the best options for our customers and use my other talents by producing our visually stimulating web ads.

I have been part of the Desk Set team since 2004. Even though I am part time these days, I enjoy helping customers. I also perform general office duties and fill in for our Office Manager when needed. I am always happy to help out.


I am married with 4 grown children and a sweet puppy. I enjoy boating, swimming and, golfing in the summer plus paddle tennis and snow shoeing in the winter. Life is good!


I am thrilled to be a member of the Desk Set team! It is a pleasure to assist the wonderful staff here and meet customers who stop by the office. My husband and I are blessed with three wonderful children.  We enjoy fishing and camping during the summers.   

   I have been involved in the office furniture industry as an installer since 2000, and joined the sales team at DeskSet in September 2016.  My installation experience allows me to offer our customers accurate assessments of their furniture and space planning needs.  I was raised in and still reside in Wayne County and am an avid motorcycle enthusiast, riding as much as possible!  I also enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends.
