I started my carrier in the insurance industry in 1976. I have been an agency owner, producer, marketing manager, office manager, sales manager and territory manager for both companies and agencies. In addition, I am approved by the DOI to teach CE classes.

My first job was with Farmers Insurance as a CSR. I opened Winger, Vogel and Beck Insurance agency in 1980.

After the agency I began working as a surplus lines producer. In 1990 I started looking at the industry landscape. Around that time an article came out stating “Insurance industry will see a dramatic shortage in qualified employees”. Through my vast experience in the industry it became very noticeable that the prediction has come true. Seeing the need for both CSR and agency support, Insurance Inside and Out was formed. The Inside represents the agency consulting and in agency employee education. The Outside represents virtual CSR and back room services.

Some of my accomplishments are:

Grandma of 4 beautiful grandchildren

President of Peninsula Insurance Woman

Chairman Agent Association Conference

CE Educator

CPIW and ARM certification
