Personal Lines Manager
Desiree Trembley is the Personal Lines Manager for Geswein Insurance Agency. She is licensed in Ohio for Property & Casualty and Life & Health. Desiree has been the personal insurance specialist for The Geswein Agency since 1995. She has earned various service awards/recognitions in her 20+ years associated with Nationwide through the Geswein Insurance Agency. Her greatest award is receiving referrals from existing customers. Her favorite part of working in insurance is providing peace of mind through clarity of coverage.
Desiree (better known as Des) was born and raised in a small Minnesota farm town but has spent her entire adult life in Ohio (Go Bucks AND Vikes!) Des has no kids (unless you count her wiener dog Tallulah) but she has 5 nieces and 2 nephews that she enjoys being a kid with. She is no stranger to dartgun wars and water balloon fights. Des enjoys the great outdoors (walking/hiking, architecture) as well as the great indoors (interior design, binge watching). Other interests include listening to music (especially indie pop and rock), watching comedians, and reading/watching documentaries and biographies. One of her favorite things is enjoying good food with great company. She often hosts her family get-togethers. She describes herself as more of an "eatie" than a "foodie" because to her, the best caviar can't compete with the worst grilled cheese. Also, no meal is complete without dessert -- you can't even spell dessert without Des.
