"As an insurance broker, I work for you my client, not an insurance company. I am a group specialist working on medical and dental plans for large corporations as well as one employee corporations. Whether you need a company benefit plan or a Private Health Services Plan (PHSP), I can help you. I will also work with you on your individual life insurance needs whether permanent, temporary, mortgage or partnership insurance. I am also a big believer in insuring your children while they are young so that premiums stay at fixed low prices forever with guaranteed insurability and allow them to start saving money for their future. As a dedicated insurance professional and broker I am committed to my clients and not an insurance company. The benefit to you is I will get you the best package and the best rate."
