VISION: My time on the Board has been truly inspiring, watching our board work collaboratively to drive association change. As a NABIP member, I believe that our leaders must model the way, inspire a shared vision, challenge the process, enable others to act and encourage the heart. Leadership means different things to different people. By leveraging the strengths, knowledge and leadership expertise, our diverse team of leaders from across the country must prepare our members for industry changes. The role of the broker/agent/consultant is critical to the future of employee benefits. The services that we provide and the products we sell will continue to evolve and our role to educate and advocate on behalf of our clients will not go away. My vision is for NABIP to be the association of choice for all employee benefit professionals. We are just scratching the surface with our capabilities and I am excited for our future. I believe in leading with consistency, integrity, fairness, humility and transparent communication.
I am dedicated to helping NABIP identify and develop future leaders to ensure members are prepared to take on leadership roles that become available—locally, statewide, regionally and nationally. I believe we need to encourage more collaborative efforts among councils/ committees within NABIP to bring the best results to our chapters. My curiosity drives me to ask questions, and learn more about our members and their needs. I am regularly encouraged to look at opportunities through a different lens and this makes me more effective as a leader. Our member experience is critical - to survive and thrive, we must identify, execute and lead strategic change. Are you ready to help take NABIP to new heights?
