What is your role with The Seltzer Group?
I’m a Personal Lines Account Executive for The Seltzer Group. I review, advise and help clients secure personal insurance coverage tailored to their individual needs.
What types of industries/ risks are you particularly interested in or have special expertise in working with?
I specialize in all types of personal insurance including Home, Auto, Umbrella and Life. Even though most people have one or more of these types of policies, many have never had a thorough discussion about what their risks are or how to understand the coverage they have or need. When I am working with a client I try to take the time to explain what types of insurance coverages are available and why they might need particular coverages to protect their families and their assets.
Why do you like working with those types of industries/risks what kind of background do you have that gives you that expertise?
I have been working in the insurance industry at the independent agent level and almost exclusively in personal lines for almost nine years. During that time, I have experienced all facets of a personal policy from risk analysis, to underwriting, issuance, service, claims and more. I use that experience, expertise I have gained and, above all, honesty, to help guide clients through (what can feel like) the very complicated world of personal insurance.
What are your goals for yours clients/ your relationship with them?
My favorite part of my job is when I feel like I have truly helped someone. My goal with every client is not just to save them money and make sure they have the coverage they need (although both are very important) but also to make sure that they walk away with more knowledge and confidence about their insurance than they had when they came to our agency. I strive to give every client the same attention and advice that I would give to a family member or close friend.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about yourself?
I graduated from Millersville University with a BA in Sociology. I “fell into” an administrative position at an independent insurance agency after I gave birth to my oldest daughter and quickly discovered that I really enjoyed the industry and the interaction with clients. Over the years I became licensed in P&C and Life and Health and have worked servicing policies as an account manager and writing new business as an account executive. I have two daughters ages 8 and 9 and we enjoy getting out, exploring and all different kinds of activities. Our favorites include camping, swimming, drive-in movies, attending their basketball and softball practices and games, and getting together with family and friends.
