Denis McNicholl

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.

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!

Hello, My name is Ashley! I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio (Home of the infamous Buckeyes 😄). I have a beautiful daughter that makes every single day of my life a little brighter than the last. 👸 I am a very outgoing free spirt and I love a challenge. I enjoy working at MPS and I plan to be here for the long run. I love helping people and I'm not afraid of adventure. You'll find me in the Ohio warehouse receiving product while sipping on a tropical Redbull, pulling orders for customers, or keeping track of inventory.

A few of my passions are singing, cooking and reading. I also have 2 crazy dogs that I love to pieces.

One motto I live by is "Carpe Diem" which means to make the most of the present time!

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.

Where do we start our adventure? 
 
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.

So what if Michael Keaton's Batman didnt have all the fancy-shmancy gadgets of todays incarnations. Whats the name again?? Christian Billy? Or is it, Ben Ah-forgeta-boutit these days. Both lacking a connection with its audience. Keaton's version of "The Dark knight" was adored around the globe, and it was mainly because of the charm that he paraded in the character's creation on the big screen. 1989's Billionaire that you wanted to root for, the kind that you're supposed to root for.  

You can understand how this great influence in my early years, would inspire someone like me to take a real "crime fighting" approach in my customer service. Serving the people. 

I have been working in the sales service industry for a little under 10 years now, serving my clients with all integrity, and minding their best interest too. Then in my private life, I also enjoy things like comic books, and traveling. I like doing things that get my adrenaline flowing,  running, and spending a lot of time outdoors.  

With Medical Purchasing Solutions, I am here to provide you with superior pricing, a good chance of availability, and best customer service practices. Last, but not least, a promise to rival the unruly Jokers.

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...

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 400,000 reads in well over 120 countries, The Chancellor was invited to the Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony two of the last 3 years by enshrinees Kevin Greene & Jerry Kramer. Both 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 back in 2016.

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.

Fast forward twenty years or so, I'm married to a third generation AZ native and we have two great kids and a funny little dog named Ruby. Together they keep us on our toes and always on the go.  We love exploring as a family and finding new places to experience in and outside of AZ.

Here at MPS, I work with customers to help them procure meds, supplies and bone grafting materials while lowering their costs and increasing productivity.  Please reach out to me any time to find out how we can help your practice grow.  I look forward to working with you!

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.

Hi, my name is Kirya! I moved to Arizona a few years ago to watch my nieces growing up and to stay near family. Before I was a Navy brat, moving from Hawaii, California, and Illinois but settling mostly in Michigan. This move was the hardest for me to make and the heat kills me every summer!

During work hours you can find me in the warehouse running to fill orders or deal with inventory. In my spare time I’m curled up in the AC enjoying a book or a video game, normally with a cat or two curled up with me.

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 Arizona 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.
