Marcy Cheney – Service Representative
Marcy hails from the beautiful Tuftonboro, NH. She went to Hesser College in the early 90’s and has had a few long term jobs along the way. One was a Jill of all trades for a local Business Forms company and the other she started out in the Shipping Department and then moved her way up to an inside Sales position for a local machining company. She prefers the smaller family owned companies so she came to Stafford because she wanted to try her hand at a new industry and stick with the family owned company values. She started out in Customer Service in the Front office in 2017 and then spent the summer of 2018 learning the ropes in dispatch, before eventually transferring over to the Service Department in December of 2018. The more she learns, the better she can accommodate our customers when they call.
When not at work, Marcy and her wife Sarah, along with their golden retriever Moxie, like to camp and spend as much time outdoors as they can with family and friends. They enjoy a good vacation to the warmer climates in the winter, but love to enjoy all the Lakes Region has to offer in the summer months and all year round.
