What first inspired you to get into your line of work? And what motivates you to do the work you do still today?
When I was younger, I had an auto accident and I was terrified. I didn’t know how insurance worked and I was afraid that I was not going to be able to get my car repaired. The only thing I knew was that I was on my parent’s policy and my dad was not going to be happy if he had to pay for the damages or buy me another car. Our Allstate agent lived across the street from us and he handled everything. That same day I got a rental car and the repairs were made to my car within a week.
I knew then and there, that I wanted to be able to help people by helping them understand how insurance works.
I’ve been in the insurance industry for over 20 years and I am always inspired when I can show people the benefits of having the right insurance coverages.
How did you come to faith in Christ?
I’ve always been a believer, but I haven’t always been 100%. As I have matured in age, I’ve also matured in my faith and dedication to Christ. Through the years I have come to have a personal relationship with God that means everything to me.
How does your faith impact the way you do business?
I treat people the way I would want to be treated. My faith compels me to try to do the right thing for everyone, no matter what.
What ministry/cause do you champion and why?
Education, education, education. Last year for my church I held a health, wellness and financial fair for the community. I brought in all types of professionals from the respective fields. I truly believe that knowledge is power! My motto has always been “when you know better, you do better.” Ecclesiastes 7:12 tells us “For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.”
Before Covid 19, I was gearing up to give insurance seminars, that’s something that I hope to start again this year.
