I get up every day to make a difference in at least one person's life. I pray before I put my feet on the floor that where ever my day may land, I did something that made a difference. 

When I lay my head down on my pillow, I always think back on my day and it is so affirming to me to see that God can use me in places I would have never imagined. 

Initially, I got into this industry because I saw a need especially for people who are clueless about the insurance industry. Personally, my life was affected positively because of life insurance. 

My husband and child were killed in an accident when I was 32 years old and if weren't for life insurance, my life would have been so much different. I would not have been able to stay at home with my other two young children and nurture and love them in spite of the loss that they both experienced. 

I was so thankful that my husband had the forethought to provide for us for what was the most life changing experience one could imagine. Later in life, I experienced helping my husband's elderly aunt with her nursing home and Medicare needs. 

Throughout this experience, it taught me how important it was for the senior adult population to have someone whom they can trust. I learned by experience and decided after she passed that I could do this for others.

Both Hands provides for me a safe place where I know I can get the support I need for answers and training to make me the most informed insurance advisor as possible. 

They have assembled a wonderful group of agents and trained advisors who can assist me at a moment's notice and have the integrity to ALWAYS advise to do what is best for the client and not necessarily for the agencies bottom line. 

I respect that.  

The products available to my clients have been recommended and tested by agents in the field who understand what is best to service the needs of my clients. 

In this industry, I have come to understand this is not a one size fits all industry. I thoroughly enjoy "shopping" to meet their needs. I have a large portfolio of companies that have been tested and proved and it gives me a sense of pride when I make a match where the client is satisfied with their choices each year. 

I enjoy meeting with them to do our reviews and hear their feedback both good and bad. It makes me a better agent to continue to learn from my clients. 

By being a part of an agency like Both Hands Financial Group we are also able to offer investment services through tactically managed money. All of my clients have access to our investment advisor representatives to evaluate their retirement and investments.

My goal for myself is always be available to my clients. I want them to feel secure in knowing that I am here to help them and assist them. 

Healthcare is very important but so is trust. I want them to know that I will do everything possible to assist them and provide as much assistance as I am legally allowed. 

 I may not always make the right decisions, but I will always do my best to make it right when I don't.

I live in Spartanburg County, SC. I grew up, attended school and worship here still.  I feel I’ve been Blessed with the gift of “Helping others.” 

After 15 years in the Banking Industry, I didn’t feel that I was helping enough. An opportunity came my way to work with a company that wanted to” help those that most companies didn’t want to help or those that needed a little more assistance”. I had no idea that it was an insurance company until I interviewed with them and knew I’d found my calling. They did teach me to take care of the client’s needs FIRST. I worked 5 years as a captive agent with them but only had one product.  When my dad needed a product that I didn’t offer I left to become an Independent agent. Now I can serve the needs of so many more people, including those in my own family. 

I'VE BEEN THERE TOO...

 My mom has several health needs that I witnessed and learned to attend to as a child. Eventually, 5 years ago, these illnesses caused her to needful-time care in a Nursing Facility.  Having not planned for long term care, mom had to go on Medicaid to stay in this facility, and we didn’t have many options as to which one she could go to. Currently I have the responsibility of making sure ALL her needs are met, but by someone else. 

 My father was a healthy man until Cancer struck. His needs were different from my mothers, but still needed to be met by insurance.  I saw first-hand how dad’s Medicare Supplement plan took care of more than Medicare and that he didn’t leave any burden to my Stepmom when he passed.

Having grown up in a small Textile Mill town, I learned the importance of hard work and trusting my neighbors. I feel I have a responsibility to give back to the ones that taught me so much.  I’ve learned to attend to the Emotional, Financial and Spiritual needs of others. 

 I see daily the needs of those I help. I learn from you and I use what I learn to help the next person.

I joined Both Hands in July 2016. I know that my leaders are looking to assist me with the knowledge and tools I need to service ALL my clients completely; from Birth to Death.  We offer more than Insurance products to our clients. You get our undivided attention to your current needs and what you may need later down the road. We are your neighbors and advocates. I can assist you with your needs at every stage of your life.
