2019 - 2020 ~ Officers & Directors
Serving as the President for the Greater Tidewater Chapter for a second term, I am excited for what we can accomplish and look forward to serving our Chapter as President. I am looking forward to working on expanding our group within our Seven Cities of Hampton Roads.
Being a part of NAWIC has given me access to meet new companies and learn more about the needs in the construction industry as it relates to women. Helping to support the community efforts and the educational opportunities has been very meaningful.
I am employed by Bankers Insurance, LLC as a Commercial Sales Executive. I have been in the insurance industry for over 25 years. I also have a Certified Insurance Counselor designation that enables me to continually learn the concerns and updates in the insurance industry. I truly enjoy making the difference in my client’s insurance costs. Doing a risk evaluation with my client’s is important to evaluate what coverage they currently have, what coverage they can absorb themselves, and what coverage best protect their assets they have worked hard to obtain.
My family are special to me and I am blessed to have two great daughters and six wonderful grandchildren. In my spare time I like to ride my horse and spend time with my sweet dogs. A glass of local wine at the beach is always terrific as well.
