About

I was born and raised in the Kansas City area and moved to North Texas a few years ago after my boyfriend and I graduated college. My background in school was originally focused in Animal Health, but I switched a few years in and eventually graduated from Kansas State University in 2018, with my bachelors in Business Admin and Marketing. Like many others in our industry, I somehow found my way into Insurance at the beginning of 2019 and haven't looked back since! When I am not servicing our benefits clients, I am likely puzzling, crafting, or cooking, and listening along to the latest true crime podcast episode.

What’s the best life lesson you’ve learned?

Instead of focusing on what you say and how you act, focus on how you make others feel.

Why did you join Virtus?

I didn't know what I was looking for or who I wanted to be as a professional when I graduated college and Virtus gave me the opportunity to develop my raw talent and skills without a ton of industry knowledge. I stayed at Virtus because I get to to make a positive impact on our clients lives by educating people on topics that feel intimidating and confusing. On top of that, I get to work with an incredibly talented group of individuals that motivate me to work harder and smarter every day.

What’s your proudest achievement?

I once got Employee of the Month when I worked at Disney World.

What’s a trip that changed you, and why?

I went on a weeklong trip to Israel in 2019 with a group 30 strangers around my age. We went rafting in the Jordan river, visited the Western Wall of Jerusalem, hiked a mountain at 3AM to watch the sunrise, and traveled with some of the greatest people I've ever met! The trip in itself was amazing but it really made me rethink my relationship with Judaism, and what it means to define and pass down traditions to our next generation.

What energizes you outside of work?

Creativity! Creating artwork, a new challenging meal, or creating new memories! I always like to try new things or a challenge.
