What is your overall experience in the insurance industry?

I am a Eureka College graduate and January 2021 will mark my 9th year in the insurance industry. I am focused on acquiring my certified insurance counselor (CIC) designation in 2021. I’ve had great success helping those with rental property and also individual life insurance cases.

I really enjoy participating in traditional archery leagues and tournaments as well as other outdoor adventures like hunting and fishing. I also enjoy cooking, especially grilling in the summertime.
