I was born at WPAFB in Dayton, Ohio, spent two years there and then 4 years in Fairbanks, Alaska before moving to Indianapolis where I grew up. I am proud of my Midwestern roots and I ab a firm believer that there is something different about those of us who possess a Midwestern work ethic. I moved to the Valley with my wife Tami in 1986. After having a distinguished career in the Food and Beverage Industry I began working with New York Life and later found that my passion for helping people was not being realized by selling Life Insurance and Annuities alone so I began my research into the regular Health Insurance Market. This was shortly after the Affordable Care Act was announced and that caused a lot of uncertainty and still does today for many people.
I had a long time friend and mentor who has been in the Medicare Insurance Industry for nearly 30 years and he (Clay) said to me "this business isn't easy and it is not for everyone but it is rewarding and you have the knowledge and personality to be successful, not only that I think you will genuinely enjoy the relationships you will make and you will be able to help and teach people which I know is your passion"
So, I began being a sponge and soaking up as much knowledge as I could about all aspects of Medicare, including Medicare Advantage Plans, AARP Medicare Plans, Medicare Supplements/Medi-Gap Insurance, and Prescription Drug Plans. Clay was a huge help and a great source of knowledge for me and for his clients. Unfortunately Clay had some serious Health Issues in 2018 and he passed away unexpectedly in early January. Per his wishes, I purchased his business and I am enjoying getting to know his clients and policyholders. I absolutely love what I do and I love helping people and educating them on the topic of Medicare and do my best to inform them so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and their family.
I am here for you, to answer any and all of your questions and to be a resource for you when it comes to your Health Insurance. With Braden MSI you will find that there is no pressure, no hard selling techniques my goal is to become a trusted friend and confidant and the way I was raised friends will do whatever they can to help each other because that what friends do and that's what friends are for...................
