Meet Our Team

At Simblist Mid-Atlantic, one of our favorite terms is “shop local.” Shopping local is what our business is based on and we take it seriously because we believe in supporting and working hard for the businesses in our territories.  We are “local” Sales Reps that are not only servicing your accounts, but members of your community, customers and supporters of your business.

Kirstyn Roberts

Territory Sales Manager

Kirstyn is a “senior” member of our team.  However, she is the youngest – lucky her! Kirstyn was formerly a Sales Manager and brings a great understanding to both sides of the business. She is consistently a top selling Sales Rep for our team and we always receive feedback from her customers that they love working with her. She is committed to our vendors and to her customer’s success. She also loves numbers and a big goal. Kirstyn is the perfect dog mom to her rescue mix PJ. Lucky PJ to have landed Kirstyn as his owner! A great lover of the outdoors, Kirstyn can be found sailing, running or just spending time outside.
