   I have many years of experience working with Life & Health Group and Individual business. I’ve been with The Benefits Firm since April 2012, and have loved being a part of a great team with great leadership.  Believe me when I say we’ve seen a LOT of changes in health benefits over the last few years, and we work hard to keep up with the most up to date opportunities.  There are still great ways to save money and maintain great benefits.  We just have to work a little harder!

   The Benefits Firm not only encourages us with work related training and programs, they also firmly believe in giving back to the community.  In my area, Eastern Kentucky, we stay involved in many civic programs.  I am a current board member at our Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce working hard to improve our local economy.  I also serve the community as a board member on Eastern Kentucky’s ONLY regional live theatre, Jenny 

Wiley Theatre, bringing live theatre to the community who otherwise might have to travel 200 miles or more. I also serve on the local Pike County/Pikeville Area Family YMCA which serves our community through gym scholarships, after school programs at our local schools teaching healthy living and exercise, Silver Sneakers, and more.  My husband is the Pastor at Salem United Methodist Church, and so, as you can imagine, this is my favorite community involvement working with the community through disaster relief, children’s programs, playing the piano, organ, flute, and for the last few years singing every Tuesday at noon at our local hospital for their rehabilitation patients.  And of course, our five boys ,dog Oreo, cat Snowball (who thinks she’s the Queen) keep us grounded, and full of excitement on any given day!

We try to live and work by this quote by John Wesley…..

    Do all the good you can,
    By all the means you can,
    In all the ways you can,
    In all the places you can,
    At all the times you can,
    To all the people you can,
    As long as ever you can.”
