  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    As a Home and Auto Advisor, my "why" not only involves protecting and adding a dash of humor but also extends to educating people about the intricate world of insurance. I believe that knowledge is power, and by empowering my clients with information, I can help them make informed decisions that suit their specific needs.
    Insurance can sometimes feel like deciphering a secret code or navigating a labyrinth, but fear not! I'm here to demystify the complexities and break it down into bite-sized, understandable pieces. Picture me as your friendly insurance tour guide, leading you through the maze of policy options and coverage terms, armed with an arsenal of analogies and relatable examples to make everything crystal clear.
    By taking the time to educate my clients, I aim to equip them with the tools and understanding they need to confidently navigate the insurance landscape. From explaining the difference between comprehensive and collision coverage to unraveling the mysteries of deductibles, I'm committed to ensuring that you don't just sign on the dotted line, but truly comprehend the value and protection you're investing in.
    Furthermore, I find immense joy in witnessing the "aha" moments when my clients grasp a concept they once thought was as elusive as a unicorn. It's like watching a lightbulb switch on above their heads, and that's when I know I've done my job well. Educating and empowering individuals about insurance not only benefits them but also helps create a community of knowledgeable and savvy consumers.
    So, if you choose to embark on this insurance journey with me, rest assured that you won't just receive advice and protection but also a crash course in insurance education. Together, we'll navigate the twists and turns, laugh along the way, and emerge with a newfound understanding that will leave you feeling like an insurance guru (or at least capable of holding your own at a dinner party discussion on the topic).
    In summary, my "why" as a Home and Auto Advisor includes the mission to educate, enlighten, and empower my clients with the knowledge they need to make confident decisions. Because when it comes to insurance, it's not just about having coverage—it's about understanding it, embracing it, and unleashing the full potential of that policy to protect what matters most to you.
  • About me
    Greetings! I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share a bit about myself. I am an Independent Home and Auto Insurance Advisor, blending my rich background and varied experiences to assist individuals in safeguarding their valuable assets.

    Before entering the insurance industry, I dedicated 18 incredible years to teaching. My passion led me to work with students who had special needs and those who were learning English as their second language. Guiding and supporting these individuals on their educational journeys was a deeply rewarding experience.

    Sports also played a significant role in my life. For 18 years, I had the privilege of coaching soccer, instilling the values of teamwork, discipline, and a love for the game in young athletes. Additionally, I spent six years coaching basketball, fostering a competitive spirit and nurturing talent within the team.

    When the warm weather arrives, you'll often find me embracing the great outdoors. Whether it's casting a line while fishing or exploring new destinations, I find solace, inspiration, and joy in nature's beauty. These moments serve as an opportunity to recharge, reflect, and appreciate the world around me.

    On a personal note, I am the proud parent of two wonderful children—a son and a daughter. They continually inspire and motivate me on my life's journey, reminding me of the importance of family and the profound love that accompanies it.

    In addition to my teaching and coaching endeavors, I had the honor of serving my country as a member of the 100th Division Army Reserve Band for six years. Contributing my musical talents to the military community was a humbling experience, and I hold deep respect for the men and women who protect and defend our nation. The band taught me discipline, teamwork, and instilled a profound sense of pride and gratitude.

    Now, as an Independent Home and Auto Insurance Advisor, I combine my diverse experiences, compassionate nature, and attention to detail to help individuals find comprehensive insurance coverage tailored to their specific needs. My aim is to provide personalized solutions, ensuring that each client has the peace of mind they deserve.

    Embarking on this new chapter of my professional life is an exciting endeavor. With my expertise and passion, I am here to guide and protect you as you navigate the complexities of insurance. Together, let's secure a brighter and more protected future.
