My professional career has always been one of service.

After graduating from Fordham University with a Bachelors in Psychology, I spent nine years with a firm as a paralegal in Social Security disability law helping first responders of the 9/11 attacks obtain their disability benefits. It was during this time that I saw volunteers struggle with untimely illness and, in some cases, death. It was extremely satisfying to assist these heroes and their families in their own time of need.

After taking some time off to start a family during the Great Recession, I decided to seek out a new career in financial services. I became a producer with the Long Island General Office of New York Life Insurance Company to “help families and businesses protect themselves as they grow.” In this role I gained priceless business experience, met amazing people, and educated whoever would listen about the importance of life insurance. In 2013 I was promoted to Sales Development Manager and relocated with my family to Michigan to help revitalize the Greater Detroit General Office. I was tasked with introducing the prospecting and marketing techniques used in offices on the East Coast to the Midwest. Shortly thereafter, an opportunity to recruit new talent in addition to training and mentoring presented itself, so I gladly accepted.

Just recently, I became curious about how I could broaden my impact even further; and as a result of my curiosity, I discovered Ann Arbor Annuity Exchange. My position is a very interesting blend of sales and support. Each day I welcome the challenge of discovering how I can help our partnering producers achieve their goals. I am honored to join the expansion of the Life Department – working with producers nationwide of all ages and experience levels.

I have been welcomed warmly by my colleagues at Ann Arbor Annuity Exchange and it is apparent that they work extremely hard to create a top-notch experience for every producer, every day. My work at Ann Arbor Annuity Exchange is definitely a wonderful way to continue to serve others and I am so happy to be a part of such a strong, dedicated organization.
