When did you start at Hayes? February 2014.
Years of experience in the insurance industry: 1.5.
Companies or industries you typically work with: I generally work with special events, such as Burning Man Events/ Artists, High Risk Business Owners, Bars/ Pool Halls, Shuttle & Transport Services, as well as Fire Suppression Companies.
Why do your clients like working with you? I offer a quick response time, often same-day quoting in most cases. I also take time to understand my client’s concerns and genuinely care about their business.
What’s a fun fact about yourself? I’ve been noodling for catfish and have biked down the steepest “continuous” paved road in the US – Haleakala Volcano in Maui, HI.
Any hobbies outside of work? Hiking, fishing, and hunting.
Success stories from some clients? I once saved a real estate company in New Jersey from going under due to a huge open claim. They couldn’t get insurance anywhere due to $2 million open claim and getting non-renewed. Their 2 options were to find an insurance taker or go under and try to re-open under a new name. One of our MGA’s came through with the only quote after 100+ brokers (including me for a while) had a shot at this and failed.

When did you start at Hayes? October 2015
Years of experience in the insurance industry: This is my first year in the insurance industry.
Why do your clients like working with you? Well, being a C.S.R. for Galen and Sam, I usually assist them with calls and certificates. When it comes to actual client interaction, they like the fact that I jump right on doing what they need. I also give them an estimated time on when to expect the task to be accomplished. I always like to call my clients and make sure they have received what they needed and make sure we cover anything else we can help them with.
What’s a fun fact about yourself? I basically grew up at the soccer field. I played soccer from the ages of 3 to 19. My dad is the vice president of the San Pablo United Youth Soccer Club and was my coach growing up. Even if I wasn’t playing, I was always at the soccer field watching and cheering on one of the 32 teams in the club. I’ve always loved being at the soccer field, and because of that I decided to become a coach myself. I got my coaching license and became a coach at the age of 15 and coached for 13-16 year old girls soccer for 6 years. Aside from the coaching and playing, I was also a youth referee after getting my refereeing license at the age of 14. So I guess you could have called me the soccer-playing referee that was always coaching.
Any hobbies outside of work? Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and especially my 6-month old son. Being outdoors, at the soccer field, or traveling, and going down to the beaches down in San Diego are also fun activities.
