Why choose me to help you? I have over 30 years of insurance industry experience. I am licensed in Washington and Idaho to sell Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Supplement Plans and Prescription Drug Plans. 'Each' year as an independent agent I am trained, tested and certified by 'each' individual health insurance carrier that I represent. This allows me to provide you with the knowledge and service to make the right decision for you. 

How I Can Help You

My mission is to help Educate and Service!  This will help you navigate the waters of Medicare insurance so that you can make a more informed decision on which plan is best for your needs. There is No Obligation and No Charge to you for my services... ever!

I will help you understand the following:

1. Medicare Basics And It Works

You have most likely received numerous mailings about health insurance, especially if you are about to turn 65 and each year around the annual open enrollment time (Oct 15 - Dec 7). It can be a bit confusing and overwhelming. To help you make the right decision for your needs, you need a licensed independent agent who can provide one stop shopping including Education and Service. This is where I come in. I will help Educate you and provide excellent Service for you. I will be your advocate throughout the year.

My Professional Journey

I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. I graduated from Washington State University (WSU - Go Cougs!) with a Bachelors Degree in Business. After college, I worked for the Bon Marche in Seattle. I worked my way up the corporate ladder to become a Buyer during the 5 years I was there. It was a great experience. Did you know that the word 'Bon Marche' is French for 'a good deal'? And do you know what the current name of the Bon Marche stores is? It's Macy's!  

While being a buyer was fun and exciting, I kept looking for a new challenge in an industry where I could use my negotiation and analytical skills and grow with a company for many years. These are hard to find now-a-days. I was very fortunate and was hired by Safeco Insurance Companies in Spokane WA, with it's headquarters in Seattle WA. If you're a baseball fan, you know that the Seattle Mariners play at Safeco Field. Yes, that's us!

What I thought may be another 5 year career, ended up being 30 years! Safeco is a great company with really great people! I held numerous positions with Safeco beginning as a front line claims examiner to claims management to operational management including regional and national positions. You can check out more of my work history here on LinkedIn. Safeco was purchased several years ago by Liberty Mutual Insurance, which is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. Liberty Mutual eventually decided to move many of it's operational management to it's Boston headquarters. I was offered a relocation package to move, but decided to stay in Spokane!

So, there I was at 57 years old looking for a new opportunity to help people. And I found a great one!

I am now a licensed independent agent helping seniors navigate the waters of medicare insurance. So, let me use my experience and passion to help Educate you and provide excellent Service for you.
