Happy Sweet 16 to University Insurance Group!! Looking back, I can not believe that I had the guts to leave the security of my job at State Farm to take a chance at owning an agency, a dream of mine for many years. But I saw an opportunity and grabbed it with both hands.
I fell into my insurance career to work closer to my daughter while she was in daycare and took a job offer with a local agency. But, honestly, I did not know a thing about insurance besides paying my monthly car insurance bill. However, I have always enjoyed helping people, so my approach has been to do my best to help others navigate the complex world of insurance.
I wish that I could say that it has been easy. However, it has been a challenging journey every step of the way. It is okay, though, as I have had many positive times that outweigh those hard times. First and foremost, working with my family has been very rewarding. The second would be getting to know our clients and being able to watch their families grow. Third is watching the agency expand into other states and employing new young talent in the insurance industry.
University Insurance Group would not be where it is today without our clients' loyalty, the team's hard work, and always doing things the right way. My grandma always said it might take longer when you do things the right way, but in the end, you will get where you want to be— a standard we hold high when conducting business.
Thank you to everyone who has had a part in our success—cheers to many more years of serving our great community one policyholder at a time, and looking forward to what lies ahead.
