1) How did you get into the insurance industry?
I began in the insurance industry in 1999, out of need. I was transitioning from college and working part-time jobs, entering the “real world” and finding a career. I started by running a small captive agents office. At that time, I knew very little about the industry, but my then mentor assured me that if I worked hard and learned fast, I could go far in this business. Out of that, my passion for insurance grew!
2) What is one piece (or a couple pieces) of advice you give your clients?
You can never have too much coverage. Just make sure it’s the proper coverage, and to always read through your policies.
3) What’s something you do outside of work that would surprise your co-workers or clients?
I’m pretty much an open book with my co-workers and they know my current and past lives. However, it might be interesting for my clients to know that, once upon a time, I practiced with a local roller derby league.
