My passion has always been to serve others and build relationships. After recieving my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida in 1986, I began searching for a career that was based on this passion. Having been raised in a New York Life family, it was an easy transition for me to join the company. Now, having 29 years of experience along with the designations of CLU (Chartered Life Underwriter) and ChFC (chartered financial consultant) from the American College, I feel that I am qualified to provide financial guidance to my clients to help them realize their financial goals..

I am a mother of three children and have been married to my husband, Harry for 27 years. This gives me the unique ability to relate with families in the community and also the desire to assist them in any way possible. It is our mission to move our clients from financial uncertainty, to financial security, and ultimately to financial independance.

As a business owner myself, I can relate to the closely held businesses in our community and the obstacles they face. Let's work together today and make your financial goals a reality!

As a third generation New York Life agent, I am honored to be in the financial services industry. I have had the great pleasure of learning from two established agents who happen to be my family! Both my mother and grandfather have not only a great wealth of knowledge of the financial industry but also a great passion for helping people. I am striving to grow my knowledge and put my own passion for helping others to work.

I recieved my bachelor's degree in Sociology from Valdosta State University where I also played baseball for two years. My experiences in the classroom and on the field have been very beneficial to my career as an agent. I have been able to apply my experience of leadership, a team mindset, and problem solving as I work with young families and business owners.

I look forward to a continued working relationship with the people of Okeechobee and the surrounding communities!
