Born in Athens, Greece and came to the US at the age of six, family and helping others is at my core. I always put family and those I care about first, which leads to my devotion to our union members to secure their family's future. My entrepreneurial nature drives my success by helping others create a legacy for themselves as I continue to learn and grow within the company to achieve my own goals. 

“Our lives and families are precious and important to all of us, and the untimely loss of a loved one is something that will stick with us for life.”

 After the loss of one of my young adult child’s lives, I came face to face with the of the inconsolable reality and pain of my families loss, and soon to follow a financial disaster that no one should have to endure.

 “This experience changed my life forever and will always be with me.”

  It was at this time I made it my mission to help others understand what can be done to protect our families from the financial burdens of an unexpected loss.

 After much research I chose to work with Globe Life and the American Division to help working class families and individuals protect themselves.

 As a manager and trainer, I have built a team of agents that have the specialized knowledge needed to help customize a plan that will protect you and your family from today and into the future on any budget.

 “Be prepared for the unexpected realities of life!”
