About Me

About Nan

Caring, passionate, generous, resourceful and assertive are some adjectives I would use to describe myself. My goal is to offer the best quality and broad assortment of funeral products to my funeral home clients so they may exceed the expectations of the families they serve. I treat every order with care and consideration and excellent follow up. I am extremely proud to enjoy a reputation of offering outstanding customer service and strong work ethic.

I have been in the funeral industry since 1997. I am a sales representative for Continental Casket Company. We distribute domestically made caskets from NorthStar and CJ Boots and imports from SICH. I am also a distributor for 14 urn companies and 3 cremation jewelry companies. In addition I sell embalming and prep room supplies from ESCO, the oldest embalming fluid company in the United States.

I began working in funeral service in the preneed arena. I had never heard the word “preneed” and everything I heard made sense. We plan everything in our lives, it only makes sense to plan our final arrangements. I continue to assist funeral homes with their preneed objectives but have expanded my offering to include various types of merchandise.

Sales of caskets, urns, cremation jewelry, body bags, pet urns, burial clothing, urn vaults and custom head panels take up the majority of my time. Many of the urns are personalized with engraving or pictures and those projects are the most rewarding.

Prior to the Funeral Industry I worked in retailing. My last position was Merchandise Manager for Neiman Marcus at Plaza Frontenac. I graduated Simmons College in Boston in 1979. I did my executive training at Lord & Taylor in New York City. I moved out to Sunny California and worked for J. W, Robinsons under the extraordinary leadership of Michael Gould. Store Manager at Burberry’s and also Brooks Brothers gives a snap shot of my retailing career. Meeting designers like David Yurman, Christos, Donna Karan, Marie Claude Lalique, Patricia Breen and Christopher Radko were definitely highlights!
