Born and raised in Tonawanda, NY right outside of Buffalo. Coming from a family of 10 children, I had to learn very early on in life the values of hard work and determination. Throughout life, I embrace each challenge with a competitive spirit. I constantly strive to set myself apart from the rest of the pack.
After the shock subdues, when others find out about my large family, the first thing they usually ask is what it was like. I always jokingly say, “Well, I have nothing else to really compare it too.” Overall though, I’d say I have learned invaluable lessons regarding teamwork, sacrifice, and the benefits of having such a large support system that I may have not gotten elsewhere.
I have always been an extremely hard worker. When I was 13 years old and eager to work, I remember “altering” my working papers in order to make it appear I was 14. I did this to get a job washing dishes at a local pizzeria. At 15 years old, I started my very first business buying things in bulk on eBay and selling them off one by one.By age 16, I was working as many hours as I could in retail while juggling school and sports.
In 2008, while still attending college, I obtained my Property & Casualty License. At that time, I decided to set myself apart from peers and focus on a career which provided me the most opportunity. Throughout my high school and college-years, I had worked odd jobs at an insurance agency where some of my family members had worked. I began working full-time through my last 2 years of college, and graduated with my B.S. in Business Administration from Medaille College in Buffalo.
In 2011, I met Michael and Anelise Minter trying to solicit their insurance. It apparently worked, and we embarked upon a business relationship. Through them, I saw opportunities I did not even know existed. With their encouragement, I have grown my business and obtained my Life, Accident, & Health License in 2012.
As a Senior Associate at Mintco Financial, Inc. who specializes in Property & Casualty insurance, I try to offer a unique perspective for clients.Whether it is asset protection or maximizing the value of premium dollars spent, I try to put a personal touch on every case I embrace. As a manager at one of New York’s largest insurance agencies, The Northwoods Corporation, I am able to offer my clients a truly comprehensive insurance experience.
My hobbies include playing volleyball, which I did competitively through college. I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my two dogs. In business and in life, I strive for a “people come first” mentality.
