My family moved to mid Missouri in the summer of 1964. My father had taken a job as the hardware manager at the newly opened Gerbes Supermarket in Jefferson City. We moved to the east side of Jefferson City and I still live there today. My siblings and I attended Jefferson City public schools and I graduated high school in 1978. After attending college at CMSU, I returned to Jefferson City to work in one of the family businesses. We were involved with several pharmacies in town including Crown Drug, Hall’s Drug and Sutton Drug. Working in the pharmacy business gave me a unique perspective into our healthcare system that still benefits my customers today.
In 1993, when we sold most of our business and I was looking for a new career, I met an older health insurance agent who took me under his wing and taught me the “old school” way of helping people find and utilize their insurance. He taught me you must always ask the three most important questions:
- Is it right for the customer
- Is it right for the company
- Is it right for me as an agent
I continue to use this advice today. I am a recognized top agent for Mutual of Omaha, a Front Runner agent for Aetna, United Healthcare and other nationally known companies. For several years I served as a member of the SMS Advisory Council representing over 10,000 agents nationwide. I am a current member of the Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce, Jefferson City Downtown Business Association and the Eastside Business Association and am committed to being involved in community events.
Family plays a very important role in my life. I am blessed to still have my mom around and I rely on her experiences when dealing with customers. I have two terrific children. My son attends Missouri State Technical College. My daughter is married to a great guy and is busy raising a daughter of her own while working full time.
I treat my customers as I do my own family and do business by The Golden Rule. With over 20 years experience in the senior market I have personally dealt with most healthcare situations or know someone to contact.
I am here to answer questions and provide the expert advice you need in a professional and supportive manner.
