When I was 18 years old my Dad was killed in the Line of Duty as a Police Officer. Nobody in my family knew what to do about life insurance claims or how to handle money properly.
Money became a point of tension in the family that has caused permanent damage. It has taken years of healing and experience to finally feel confident that I can help others with these issues.
As my kids become young adults, I get the exciting opportunity to tell them what mistakes I have made, and how they can avoid being reckless.
This mindset change has moved to helping those who are frustrated with health insurance premiums. We are entering a crisis in this country with our health insurance premiums rising to unaffordable levels. Thankfully I have experience and knowledge of this topic and want to share it with anyone that will listen.
Growing up in Western North Dakota helps me understand the unique facing rural blue collar communities. I am married with 4 children and 2 grandkids.
During Covid I learned to work remotely and now move around between Maine and North Dakota. I help people mostly by phone and computer at their request, and have been in the life and health insurance industry since 2006.
At 18 I joined the Army and ended up with the 82nd Airborne as a Medic at Ft. Bragg, NC. I then joined the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Army National Guard and did a tour in Japan with 10th Marines as a Corpsman and a tour in Iraq with the 39th Brigade Combat Team out of Arkansas as an Army Medic.
