Financial & Employee Benefits Advisor

I am a fully qualified Life and Accident & Sickness Insurance Agent. I provide Life, Health, Critical Illness, & Long term Care Insurance, Group Benefits Packages, and Investment Products specific to each of my client’s needs, both personal and corporate.

As an Investment and Insurance Broker, I have access to products and services from all of the major Insurance companies. When my client's have a specific need, ie: life insurance, we first establish what type of policy suits their needs the best, then I go to each of the major insurers on behalf of my clients to compare pricing. By doing this I save my clients time and money!
