Simple Desk

About Us

Meet Jenny, the Visionary behind Simple Desk

Simple Desk was a big dream I had as a single mom who knew she wanted more for herself than the typical 9-5. I started out small, helping a few of my entrepreneur friends with their businesses, and quickly realized that with hard work and determination, that I could really make this dream a reality!

Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. I’ve had my own ups and downs, and there were times where I wasn’t always sure if I could make it. But here we are 5 years later with a growing business and a dynamic team of experts behind me. What I enjoy most about my role as Founder of Simple Desk is witnessing the incredible impact our work has had on entrepreneurs and their business growth. To be able to help them determine what they need to grow, and to be able to share our skills in support of that happening, is simply incredible!

Fun facts about Jenny:
•Jenny has a passion and zest for learning…there is nothing that she won’t try
•She loves to network, but isn’t a fan of public speaking
•She has a killer golf swing, and invites anybody to challenge her at the range

Having spent most of my life in accounting, administration and customer service, I knew I had the skills and expertise to help. I wanted to find a way to make their life easier and more efficient so they could get back to why they started the business in the first place. Passion, drive and success are all goals I strive to help my clients achieve. I take great joy in helping others succeed. When it comes to my clients, their success is my business.

Small/medium businesses are the backbone to our community. Not only have we supported many of the local businesses in the Quinte West area, but we have also provided free educational webinars and resources for our local businesses on a variety of key business related topics.
