The Casually Cool Award
What do you like to do for fun?
I enjoy a number of things in my spare time like golf, poker, walking our yellow lab, camping, fishing, watching live music, going to sporting events (professional and my kids), playing games with friends and family.
Week 2: May 6 – May 12
The Workplace Image Award
What do you find most rewarding about your job?
Finances and money, particularly investing and planning for retirement, can be daunting for most people. Every day my goal is to simplify the complicated. And most days my clients are very appreciative. Going to sleep at night knowing that I’ve done my best for each person and that they are comfortable with their own financial situation makes my job very rewarding. When a client calls to thank me or I’m able to quickly solve a complicated issue for them, I get a sense that I’m doing exactly what I was meant to do in life. I absolutely love my job, and I don’t think many people today can say that, which is rewarding in and of itself.
Week 1: April 24 – May 5
The First Impressions Award
What made you decide to pursue your current career or vocation?
Growing up I always knew that I wanted to be in the insurance industry. Well, that isn’t entirely true. When I was a kid I really wanted to be an astronaut, but that didn’t work out for me. I worked for a family friend at his insurance agency while I was in college and upon graduation I accepted a full time position with the agency. I liked the idea of interacting with different people on a daily basis to help them with their insurance needs. 15 years later, I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.
