Bernadette Haubert, Office Manager

After a career in food service, Bernadette joined the DH team. She has bounced around the office in various positions before settling into her desk as office manager. She is always down for a project and loves efficiency and organization. She channels that energy throughout the building assisting wherever is needed and ensuring everyone has the support to succeed. When not in the office, she can be found enjoying the beautiful state of Maine and crossing her fingers to see a moose.

Jenn Guidry, Director of Sales & Marketing 

Jenn’s hybrid sales and marketing career span over 20 years in consultative sales strategy, execution, and account management as well as digital marketing best practices, strategy, and execution in the realms of content marketing, social media marketing, email marketing, SEO best practices, and most recently SaaS product marketing and e-commerce marketing. Being a client of Desert Harvest for ten years and extremely passionate about longevity, health, and wellness, Desert Harvest was a natural organic progression for Jenn to transition her strengths into. When she is not traveling the world or maximizing Desert Harvest’s digital footprint, she is most likely traveling somewhere in the country on a soccer field with her ohana, including her husband and two daughters, or going on travel excursions and outdoor adventures, as she is quite the adrenaline junkie. If she finds the time to slow down, she loves to hang around in a bookstore or coffee shop turning the pages on a good book or listening to an intoxicating new podcast, air pods in the ear, with an iced white chocolate almond mocha in hand.

Shelby Florio, Sales Specialist 

Born and raised in North Carolina, Shelby started working part-time at Desert Harvest in 2016 while in high school.  After attending college, she came back to Desert Harvest full-time because she enjoyed working in a place where she felt she was helping people.  Eventually, Shelby and Anthony started dating so when the Florio’s decided to move DH to Maine, it was a no-brainer for her to make the transition.  While it was a huge move, she fell in love with the state of Maine and the scenery there. Her favorite thing about her job position is knowing that she is spreading the word about a great company with amazing products that were all created to help a severely underserved part of the community.  Shelby spends her free time with Anthony, her husband, and their two pups, Xander and Athena.

Kaitlyne Harrison, Customer Service Specialist 

Kaitlyne Harrison is a Customer Service Specialist at Desert Harvest. She has lived on an island in beautiful coastal Maine for most of her life, working various jobs in the customer service industry until she found her way to the Desert Harvest team through a mutual connection. She loves meeting new people, sharing experiences, and helping everyone in any way she can! If Kaitlyne is not at the office you can find her collecting shells and sea glass at the beach, trying new recipes in the kitchen (especially baked goods!), hiking with her two dogs, curled up with a good book, or chasing sunsets with her camera.

Dan Florio, Shipping Specialist 

Dan is the newest Florio family member to call Desert Harvest his home away from home. A life-long resident of Vermont and master of shipping, Dan moved to ME in 2021 to put his skills to use. He manages all of the orders to get our customers the products they need to help improve their quality of life and takes this responsibility very seriously, packing each order with the care and attention he would want someone to give his own. Outside the office, you can find him at car shows as he has a large passion for anything with wheels, working on his YouTube channel, or hanging out with his daughter.
