Amy Kelley, The Insurance Nana, shares her story below for how she got started in insurance and why she considers her job to be so rewarding.
“I love my job as an insurance agent. I love helping people find the insurance coverage they need for their family, and for less. Helping people navigate the complicated world of health insurance is a passion of mine. I had to learn first-hand, how to understand the complicated world of insurance, at the young age of 21.
Having grown up in Miami, young people thought it was a good idea to use baby oil instead of sunscreen. This was a bad idea, and it led to skin cancer. It was a difficult time in my life that made me worry about my future. I also had to learn how to get my medical bills covered with my limited policy. After experiencing a cancer diagnosis, I did my best to avoid getting skin cancer, again. I changed my lifestyle and adopted better habits.
My life took another sharp turn (years later) when I found out that I got custody of my grandson. At the age of 47, I took a young child into my home, full time. Raising my grandson would be a full-time job. It was now essential that I maintain my health, stay active, and get a good insurance policy, for the sake of my family. Many life-changing experiences brought me to this point in life, which forced me to make a big change in my lifestyle. I am now happy and healthy, and I want to share that with others.
My hobbies and passions in life also led me to pursue ballroom dancing (see the picture and video, below). I recently entered my first competition in ballroom dancing and won 1st place in the best of the best, and 9 dance challenges! My competitive nature led me to pursue that hobby and compete.
In summary, I love the challenge of competition just as much as finding the right solutions to a family’s insurance problems. For me, whether it be ballroom dancing or insurance, I always look to find the right solution to fill a need. This passion pushes me to keep looking for ways to save money on health insurance, and to be the best insurance agent. Having navigated the ever-changing world of health insurance for myself, my grandson, and for hundreds of clients, makes me qualified to help you and your family with health insurance or life insurance!”
