Founder and Manager
Since high school, I knew I would be a business owner doing something to help people but didn’t know exactly what or how. I attended Business College, (yes they had Business Colleges in the 70’s). In fact, I went through a 4-year college accounting curriculum in 12 months. And I added a few courses to earn a second diploma in Business Management/Administration. My husband and I opened a jet boat manufacturing company that evolved into a full marine center dealership. Wonderful experience!!! But what I learned there was when you have employees they want and need health benefits. We managed what to offer by doing research on our own. But there had to be a better way.
When our business closed in early 2000, I had the opportunity to get my Health Insurance License and during the training, I learned that business owners NEED an advocate, they don’t know what they don’t know…and there is A LOT to know!! They are so busy running their businesses, they don’t have the time or energy to learn all the intricacies of the Health Insurance Industry and how to navigate employee benefits.
So here I am, 20 years later! A LOT has changed and business owners are still too busy to do their own research for employee benefits and still need an advocate. I was never THAT broker that only sells traditional group plans, because that’s easy and path of least resistance. I choose to be different, be better, give more…an agent who truly listens and cares! An agent who will go outside the box to provide the best options or opportunities. It might end up being a traditional group medical plan that they choose and is best for them, but at least knowing if there is something better, they will have the ability to choose the coverage they want and what they will pay...which is unanimously the case for all business owners…the business’ bottom line.
