Philadelphia, PA

I have called the Philadelphia area my home for all of my life. I am a proud Drexel University graduate and I live and die by my Philadelphia Flyers, Glasgow Celtic Football Club, and my World Champion Philadelphia Eagles! When I’m not watching any combination of those three sports teams, I can probably be found sipping some bourbon and/or smoking a cigar, or taking my beagle for a walk with my fiancée. I absolutely love working in the print and promotional products world because I’m a business owner who gets to help other business owners accomplish very similar goals: representing your brand in the absolute best ways possible, shouting your message from the mountaintop, and growing your business! Oh, and I totally geek out over and I’m always down for a print production plant tour. So let’s go on one soon! Slainte!

Client satisfaction is my top priority…. always has been, always will be.  For over 20 years, this has been my mantra whether I was providing  my customers with copy machines, custom printed items, apparel or promotional gear.  It’s easy to do right by your clients when you care.  Safeguard makes it easy to support business needs because we offer just about everything  imaginable to grow, market and manage any company.   In addition to custom print, promo gear and apparel, Safeguard offers custom checks, direct mail services, web design and hosting, SEO as well as design services.  There’s really no need to look anywhere else. I’m extremely proud to work with such a great group of people who believe in total client satisfaction just like I do. Personally, I’m a little bit rock n’ roll, beach bum and country girl!  I love to work in my flower gardens and vegetable garden.  Other interests are camping in our RV, cooking, playing piano and my newest fascination of crocheting.  But, the most important things in my life are my faith, my family and my friends.  I have 4 grown kids, 4 grandkids, 2 cats and am married to my high school sweetheart!  Life is good!
