What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
Ever since I was a kid I wanted to have a career that helped people. I graduated from high school while working as a Volunteer Fire Fighter and Rescue Technician. I have always felt a calling to serve the community in some capacity. I have enjoyed the ability to do that professionally and personally.
If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have?
I have spent most of my life working in Emergency Medical Services and it truly was my calling. I still hold my license as a Paramedic today.
What’s the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?
I entered the insurance business part time 8 years ago. I said from the beginning that I wasn’t going to do something unless it was serving a purpose. The more I learned about personal insurance the more it became obvious that there is a huge disconnect from most agents to their clients. As I learned, I noted that many of my clients were underinsured or paying for things they didn’t need.
How long have you been working in your field?
What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?
Uncertainty. As an independent insurance agent my number 1 goal is to review my clients current policies and make sure that they understand their coverages. Once I know exactly what my client’s needs are, my 2nd goal is to find an insurance policy tailored for them at the most competitive price available today.
What’s your favorite dessert?
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have a two young children so what is spare time? On a serious note, I love being involved with my kids sports or at the lake with the family. I am an outdoorsman so in the fall and winter months I tend to get out the city as much as possible hunting and fishing.
