My insurance career began in 1989 after seven years in my father's business, Central Conservatory of Music.
I worked for a large local life insurance company as an agent for two years, and a manager for eight more, until that company went through a merger. I opened an agency for a captive (means you can only sell their product) carrier and operated that for 9 years until I opted to open an independent agency so that I could truly serve my clients best interest and have a lot of options for them.
I was licensed in 1989 for life and health insurance, following in 1991 with the property and casualty licenses. I maintain licenses in Kentucky and Indiana. I am a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, and through them obtained a fellowship from the Life Underwriters Training Council. I have moderated several courses for them, and have also worked in local high schools with the Junior Achievement program, teaching financial and budgeting classes to seniors.
I have been married since 1984, have three kids and as many dogs.
Commitment to my family, clients and career is very important to me. I take great interest in getting to know my clients. In my agency, we take a fun, lighthearted approach to our clients, but we do take our job seriously. You can expect a smiling voice and a little laughter while talking about serious subjects.
I started in the administrative side of the insurance business as a co-op from high school with Commonwealth Life Insurance. I later took positions with their parent companies, Capitol Holding, Providian Financial and finally Aegon USA.
I left the insurance business for several years and worked with MDA (Muscular Dystrophy "Jerry's Kids") before taking a position with Integrity Life. After a corporate move, I accepted a position with AFLAC (The Duck).
I now work with small business owners to help offer low cost benefits, life health and disability, for their employees.
