“Solving problems is my favorite thing to do,” Amanda reflects on her role at the agency. “I really want to understand a company’s goals, problems, and culture so I can develop a strategy to help.”
Amanda cites her two years (2015-2017) working as the Director of Human Resources for an assisted living facility as a gift. “I have the unique perspective of actually being HR at one point in my career. I know what HR’s day looks like, and I want to make it better. That kind of experience is so rare among insurance agents.”
