How did you determine that insurance was a viable career choice?
I have always been driven to reach out and make a difference in people's lives but now helping people through insurance has given me a way to focus that ambition. I saw a need for better customer service when I was involved in an auto accident prior to becoming an agent. I had many questions that went unanswered and my frustration made me realize that there was a need for a different kind of insurance agency—one that actually cared about their clients before and after selling them a policy.
