Licensed Independent Agent
I am a licensed health and life insurance agent, certified in Medicare. I started working in the Medicare arena in January of 2018, after getting laid off from my previous position as the Alumni Director for a small university. On my last day at the university, I had planned on meeting with the future Alumni Board President, who just happened to be an executive with one of the largest Medicare insurance companies in the United States. At that time, I had no idea where I would land next, but told him that in my next career, I wanted a job that allowed me to help people while building relationships with them. He told me that the role of Medicare agent was the perfect fit for me and I should look into it. At the time, I didn’t know anything about Medicare, but quickly recognized he was right!
I’ve come to realize that many people are unfamiliar with Medicare and the option of working with an independent agent like myself until they find themselves on the brink of turning 65 or retiring. And if you’re reading this right now, you are likely feeling overwhelmed by the complexity of Medicare and the variety of options available to you.
I’m here to help you navigate the complex world of Medicare and identify the coverage that fits your lifestyle and health needs. As an independent agent, I am contracted with several top Medicare carriers in Oregon and Washington, so I can help you find the plan that works for you.
One of the most common questions I get is: How do you get paid? I am a commissioned sales agent, which means that I get paid by the insurance company if you sign up for a plan with me. As your agent, I am your advocate with your insurance carrier. I also help you review your coverage and make any necessary changes over the years. So I often say—don’t go it alone in the world of Medicare! Help with understanding Original Medicare (and how it works), signing up for Medicare, and finding the right supplemental insurance is always available at no additional cost to you.
I look forward to working with you to build an affordable healthcare plan that will provide overall value and peace of mind for years to come.
