 In Colorado Insurance Professional

How did your insurance journey start? How did you end up at AAI?

“I never thought I was going to work in the insurance industry, not many people do.  It was not until my sophomore year, when Chris Fernandez (head of the tech department) contacted me on myspace.  I called him and I was given an interview.  I started in commissions.  I did it for about four or five months.  After that, I became a tech assistant.  A few months later the social media bubble started to inflate and Affordable American Insurance went out on a limb and asked me to build their online brand.  I was up for the challenge, within a few weeks, I had written a blog, set up a twitter account, and a facebook business page.”

What do you do at AAI?

“I handle just about everything on the website: write blogs, build social media apps, share engaging content, train agents on how to use Social Media, search engine marketing, search engine optimization, videographer, audio engineer, and any other project that AAI wants to throw my way.”

What makes you excited about AAI?

“Affordable American Insurance is growing and partly due to what I have been doing in the tech department.  I love being able to see the results of my work and guide the company towards success.”

What advice would you give to to an agent thinking about going independent?

“I would tell them to Google specific keywords in the independent insurance industry like ‘Colorado independent insurance agency’ and see what websites come up.  I would tell them to visit a few websites and see which ones are better.   Having an online presence is key to your success.”

If you could be a superhero, which one would you be?

“That  is a difficult question,  I would have to pick the Green Lantern because the ring picks the person that would best fit it.  The Green Lantern gets his power from how creative he is and there is no limit to what one can think up.  I would change the world make it a better place.  Since I am not the Green Lantern, I will focus on helping people in my local community.”
