"I want to protect my people and their pocketbook!"
My favorite thing to do is save folks money while giving them better coverage!
I got my insurance licenses in property, casualty, life, and health at the age of 22 and started working for State Farm. In 2011, I went to work for AAA as an agent in the sales center. I was selling in 7 different states and was the top agent in the Cincinnati market for 3 years in a row. This was also where I met my now best friend and business partner, Matt Zinser. I then moved to an outside agent position with them and opened a brand new office for AAA in Newport, KY. As an outside agent, I had to give up my book of business in 4 states and bring in all the foot traffic to the new store and we broke sales records individually, as well as an office for AAA.
I then went on to open up a new office in Florence, KY, and continued to grow my book of business to over 2 million dollars without any foot traffic. For 4 years, I volunteered for the NKY Chamber of commerce as an ambassador and helped new businesses all over northern KY and Cincinnati with their grand openings as well as mentoring business owners into becoming ambassadors themselves.
To grow my network, I have teamed up with realtors, mortgage brokers, bankers, etc. I created my own networking group in the Florence area with a few of my closest peers and colleagues in various industries. We have donated food to school staff, our time to various charity events, and handed out many gifts to the communities in this area.
As time went on, Matt and my relationship grew through mentoring each other, spiritual guidance, and of course attending Bengals games together since 2012. We decided to leave our current careers and take a chance to work with each other. With over 25 years of experience in the industry between us, I think we can figure it out!
