The Executive Team
As a recovering workaholic, I continue to fall back into old habits, thus, I have started attending WA (Workaholics Anonymous) every Sunday morning.
I do find time to practice my knitting skills, during the late evening hours when I can't sleep, and I've recently finished my first pair of mittens; next will be a wool hat.
More importantly, I'm going to spend time with my nephew so I can better utilize my tablets, phones and Photoshop.
If you need immediate service during non-working hours please contact me on my cell 480-773-2454.
John S. Discerni
At MPS, I concentrate on product acquisition and general operations. Because the market for injectable drugs has become so complex due to the limited number of manufacturers we spend a considerable amount of time to make sure that MPS has the products you need now.
On the personal side, I'm a Cleveland Browns fan. Because the market for Browns fans has become so complex due to the limited number of wins I really don't know why I spend a considerable amount of time to remain a Browns fan. I know that I need help. If you’re in the same boat please feel free to call in to commiserate!
Sales & Operations
Originally from Nebraska, I moved to Arizona in 1987 for the sunshine.
I am a full-time mom (3 beautiful daughters ages 22, 17, 13) with a full time job and I enjoy both!
When I have spare time....I enjoy dancing, treasure hunting at estate sales and socializing with friends.
Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or ordering needs. I am always happy to help! Contact Marla Steffens
One of your friendly neighborhood sales reps. Originally from the midwest where I grew up in Ohio. I enjoy the warmth and lifestyle that is Arizona. I love winter days when it's 80 and I can be out in shorts and a Tommy Bahama.
When I'm not offering Precedex to a client for Medical Purchasing Solutions I spend my time as The Chancellor of Football which is my true identity writing for Taylor Blitz Times.
I am an NFL/AFL historian that writes about football today and how it relates to the game of yesteryear. Now over 300,000 reads in well over 120 countries, The Chancellor was invited to the Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony last year as a guest of Kevin Greene. Whom I advocated for since 2011. I have also written articles which were used to introduce Cliff Branch & Robert Brazile for enshrinement into Mike Ditka's Gridiron Greats Hall of Fame at a gala ceremony last June.
Several national publications have linked to articles in Taylor Blitz Times including Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post, & SB Nation.
Let me know what your office needs and I'll be there to assist.

I served in the Army Infantry, I have lived in 9 states, and I settled down to call Arizona my home.
In this constantly changing industry I make it my goal to make ordering easy and economical for all who seek my help.
I believe it is all about building and maintaining healthy relationships to take care of my customers who rely on my expertise and service. Contact Jay Kneifel
Born and raised in Chicago, I enjoyed an 18 year layover in Pittsburgh before moving here to Columbus Ohio, 12 years ago. I'm a lifelong Cubs fan with hopes of seeing them in a World Series before I leave this world. I've been an antique collector for 30 years...and still love the thrill of the hunt. I love to tinker, restore and repurpose all kinds of old rusty gold. I love to travel, and explore new places. To me it's not always the destination....it's the journey.
I'm your new Midwest connection here at MPS, so feel free to call or email me anytime with any questions or needs you may have. I look forward to working with you all...Contact Jeff Hall
I'm a recent arrival here in the Phoenix area, moving across the country just under a year ago from Massachusetts. Living on the East Coast for my entire life, Arizona has been quite a change in scenery, but an exciting one as I am discovering new places and things to do all the time!
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, reading, playing with my 2 awesome dogs, and exploring the beautiful AZ desert.
Here at MPS, you will find me in the warehouse (armed with my trusty can of Monster Energy Zero Ultra) packing up orders and shipping them out, counting inventory, or organizing stock.
I'm more than happy to help with any questions or concerns, or put you in touch with one of our amazing reps who can assist you. Contact Sam Hindman
I have been preparing to save lives, since I was born, over 10 years ago in Chicago, IL. Approximately 3 years ago, I moved to AZ to join my new MPS family. They are an awesome group of people and I am enjoying the sunshine!
I continue to be an important asset to MPS and I am really looking forward to expanding through the myriad of dental offices from Coast to Coast I offer so many great benefits such as a Monitoring Service, Automated Notifications and an Accelerated Replacement Program.

I am one of the newest additions to the MPS team. Originally from Idaho, I’ve spent most of my life in Tucson, AZ. I moved to Scottsdale, AZ in 2013. Which was the best decision ever, anyone that has lived in Tucson knows what I’m talking about.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling as much as possible, continuing with my flight training and of course spending time at the lake. There isn’t much else to do when it is 120 degrees during the summer.
I also enjoy learning everything I can about the drug industry. Please feel free to contact me with any of your questions or concerns. And I will contact someone that knows the answer. Contact Justin Spiegel
Where do we start our adventure? Contact Brad Miller
Word on the street is he challenged the great Ron Burgundy to an Indian leg wrestling contest and lived to tell about it. Played in the poker game of the century with his opponents Big Foot, Loch Ness Monster, and the Abominable Snowman. The stakes were high and costly, with the losers going into exile. To test his fortitude, he has walked on hot coals without burning his bare feet. Those closest to him, claimed he could hit a penny at 200 yards with an AR10. Known for being an avid Bears fan, but that’s an extremely dark, depressive, and twisted story these days.
As for myself, I lived in Southern California until 2006. I felt it was time for a change and decided to move to AZ without ever visiting the state. I have been with MPS for a little over a year now. I bring 12 years of experience in logistics, operations and management. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, playing poker, reading, shooting firearms, and hanging out with my dog. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
I grew up in Columbus, OH and have spent most of my life here in this Midwest city. I have been married for 35 years (to the same woman) and have 2 adult sons 29 and 25. I have been a runner for 40 years and I have completed 9 marathons. I also enjoy playing golf and I am constantly trying to improve my game. My wife and I, enjoy vacationing in Pawley's Island, SC and may make that our permanent someday.Contact Terry Lannan
Born and raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas, I am a true Razorback fan!
My husband and I love Scottsdale, AZ and have four children. Two Sun Devil grads, one attending in Santa Barbara, CA and the "baby" at Chaparral High.
I love jogging, hiking, biking....just about anything outdoors! And I love sporting events! Go Diamondbacks, Cardinals and Suns!
At MPS I serve as the Executive Assistant, so if I can be of assistance please contact me.Contact Pam Tribble
I am one of the newest and youngest memebers of the Medical Purchasing Solution Team. I was born in the Spring, hence the name , and I am originally from Maryland. Growing up I was a military brat, which led to living in several different states until I eventually ended up here in the beautiful state of Arizona. I am a college student, working towards a Bachelor's in Business Management. In my spare time you can probably find me with my nose in a book, binge watching a show on Netflix, or spending time with my family and friends.
Here at Medical Purchasing Solutions, it is my goal to provide every client with the service they deserve. So please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I will be more than happy to help!Contact Spring Bradley
I'm know around the office as "The Web Guy". I work tirelessly on the websites to make online ordering quick and easy.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I've been in Arizona since 2012 and love it. I miss the ocean, but not the traffic. When I'm not crunching code you'll find me hanging out with my family or hustling nuts.Contact Bill Sutherland
