How do you stay current with policies and regulations regarding the insurance industry?
I do a lot of reading and listening. With the Affordable Care Act, it seems every day there is a new wrinkle. Our employee benefits staff have all become certified by the National Association of Health Underwriters in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and we continue to receive and share updated information from many great sources.
What’s your favorite local activity to do?
My husband & I really enjoy boating. We have a boat out in Orleans and we enjoy putting around the Pleasant Bay area.
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job, other than the folks I work with, is making my client’s jobs easier. Many companies now have human resources people wearing many different hats and I like to think that our Employee Benefits department makes that burden just a little easier with effective useful communication, listening and creative solutions.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I either wanted to be an artist or a flight attendant. I didn’t want to be a starving artist so that was out and I suffer intermittently with motion sickness, so not very smart to spend my life on airplanes!
What brought you to R&G, and why have you stayed?
I started at RogersGray the first time back in back in 1989, got married had 4 kids (his, mine and ours) and pursued other avenues like banking, financial planning and investments. I always stayed in touch with a person or two at RogersGray, so it was natural when I was approached about possibly coming back in 2006, that I jumped at the opportunity. Through those 20+ years, RogersGray has always had a great reputation and working here is more like being part of a family. They’re stuck with me now!
Of the five senses (vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch) which would you say is your strongest?
I have to say my hearing. My kids say that I have ninja skills! I don’t miss a trick.
