After graduating from Trent University in 1987, I officially began my career as an insurance broker. I started out working at a small firm for my father and then moved on to work with other companies after his retirement. Working with multiple companies for over 30 years, I have gained valuable experience and developed my career, and now the Senior Vice President of Breckles Group of Companies Inc. While building my career, I am also dedicated to formally enhancing my insurance industry education. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree, I finished my RIBO licence in 1987, completed my CAIB accreditation in 1992, and my CIP accreditation in 2000. In addition to my commitment to education, I currently share my broker knowledge and passion through the Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker (CAIB) Program as a Program Facilitator – teaching the CAIB Immersion Program, the Advanced Broker Technical Week, Commercial Lines Power Series and many individual sales/technical courses offered by the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO). I look forward to continuous growth, leveraging education as my guiding principal to help develop people and business.
