Tell us a bit about you and why you do what you do? Share your passions for your business, initiative, organization.
I have worked in the insurance industry for over 20 years. I have seen clients not have sufficient coverage due to the lack of communication and education, language barrier, being uninsured or underinsured. When clients are purchasing insurance it’s something they can’t see or feel and it is my job to inform them and make them aware of all the necessary insurance policies they need.
Consumers aren’t aware of the many different types of insurance policies that can be taken out on their home, automobile or business. As much as the consumer may not want to purchase some of the most necessary insurances, it is my job to inform, educate, and let them know just why it will be suitable to them in the long run. The most rewarding part of my job is when my client feels secure in their policy.
What role do you think your business plays in supporting a more creative community? OR your community in general. (Bonus! Why do you think a more creative community is important?)
Being a minority- woman owned and multi-lingual agency that provides insurance services, knowledge, and guidance for every individual, professional and business owner of all cultures and ethnicities. I feel that a creative community builds intercultural connections, it is participatory and interactive and stimulates as well as motivates. A creative community brings and nurtures skills in teamwork and cooperation.
