"I was a Domestic Executive for 20 years while raising my four children. Born in New Jersey, but growing up in Venice, I moved to Fort Lauderdale after college and lived there for 30 years. When a 21 year marriage led to divorce, I became a single mom and a sole provider. A dear friend encouraged me to get my insurance license, and I have always had a soft spot for seniors, so I decided to get into the very specialized niche of Medicare Supplements.
Some years ago, I saw first hand what being in a network plan looked like for my mom - a limited network of doctors, referrals for specialists and approvals for procedures. She had co-pays, co-insurance and high deductibles all under the idea that it’s “free”. Thankfully, I got into the business at the right time and was able to help my mom. Original Medicare with a Supplemental policy allows you to go to any doctor, any specialist and any medical facility in the country that accepts Medicare because Medicare is your primary. If done correctly, you DO have the choices you deserve!
I love what I do, it is my passion, my job and my ministry. Making sure you understand your choices in Medicare, and providing exceptional customer service with my 'call me anytime' attitude is what sets me apart. Most of my business is done through referrals, a happy client who wants to share me with their friends is absolutely the best compliment!"
