You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I joined the health insurance industry right before the bulk of the Affordable Care Act changes took place. I have increased my client base by 50%+ every year with referrals alone. I focus on service, compliance, education and wellness.

I love to teach and train others. I have taught English to children in Austria, served as mentor to teachers, directors and sales professionals. I even help job searchers find their secret superpowers to show off during the interview process.

What's not on LI. Life is too short to not make interesting things happen. In 2011 I bought a boat and 6 months later sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge, took a left and headed to MX. I navigated through storms, learned to fillet a fish in under 2 minutes and won two sailing regattas along the way.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I can help with the following areas:
-Help with your short term and long term benefits strategy to help you attract and retain the talent you need.
-Educate the management team and workforce of small-mid sized businesses so that a really important but confusing topic, health insurance, becomes easy to understand and easy to use.
-Help uncover wellness programs for your employees to keep them healthy and happy.
-Answer any other health insurance relate questions
