The Portage Mutual Insurance Company

I have been in the insurance industry for over 8 years now, starting off at Canadian Direct Insurance as a Sales Advisor and then Sales Supervisor. I am currently with Portage Mutual Insurance, which has been a continuous learning and growing experience. I was previously an Auto & Property Underwriter, and am now undergoing a transition towards being the Northern Alberta Marketing Representative. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree, Bachelor of Education Degree, CIP Designation, and am currently working towards my CRM Designation. I have been a part of the Edmonton Insurance Association for over 4 years. I was the Treasurer for 2 terms and am now in my second term as President. Being a part of the EIA has been a wonderful experience. It has allowed me to attend and help to plan numerous events as well as network with many people in the insurance industry. Some of the highlights of my experience have been the CAIW (Canadian Association of Insurance Women) conventions that I attended in Montreal, Halifax & Calgary, getting to know many incredible people that I would not have had the pleasure of meeting otherwise. I have greatly enjoyed my time with the EIA and look forward to many years to come.

A-WIN Insurance

I have been working in the Insurance Industry since 1990 starting in the claims side of the Insurance Industry and moving into a broker role in 1999 where I managed a large brokerage.  In 2001 I started working with Trans West Insurance as an Office Manager and in 2002 was presented an opportunity to purchase my first Insurance Brokerage with Trans West Insurance. My First office opened in March 2002.  In 2006 we merged with another brokerage and became A-Win Insurance. 2007 brought another opportunity to purchase a second branch and in September 2007 I took over the handling of the branch in Fort Saskatchewan. For several years I attended educational and networking functions with The Edmonton Insurance Association and became a member in 2017.  I am looking forward to this new journey working with the Members of the Executive Team and help host new and exciting Educational and Networking Events.


Treasurer & Membership Chair

Amanda Vanberg

Phone: 1-877-435-1484

I am one of those rare individuals who planned for a career in insurance. After growing up on the farm near Innisfree Alberta, I moved to Edmonton to take the Insurance and Risk Management program at MacEwan University straight out of high school. After completing that program I quickly finished her CIP and joined the insurance industry. Most of my more than 15 years in the business have been on the broker side. While working at local and national brokerages, I worked my way through a variety of roles. From starting in administration, I moved my way through account executive, group business, and provincial resource coordinator roles. In 2016 I decided to make a switch to the company side and started working in Business Development. I will be celebrating my fifth year with SGI CANADA  in the fall.

I am a lifelong learner and passionate about personal and professional development. Despite a busy family and a demanding role, I have been diligently completing my Commerce Degree. And in addition to all of this, I am a full time hockey mom and part time player. On most weekends, no matter what season, you will find me at the rink. Either playing on one of several teams I’m involved with, cheering my 13 year old son Reece on, or giving my husband Travis some coaching tips. 

After attending the CAIW convention in 2019 in Calgary I knew that I needed to be more involved in the EIA.  Since then I have held the role as treasurer and now the membership chair with the Edmonton Insurance Association.

BELFOR Property Restoration

I began my career in the Insurance industry 5 years ago when I started with Belfor as their Marketing & Business Development Specialist.  Previous to that I worked as an Operations Manager for a Marketing Company and a Project Manager for a Tech company.  I have a Degree in Business Administration, a Project Leadership Certificate, and am currently finishing my last courses towards my Project Management Certificate. I had the privilege of playing Volleyball at both Grant McEwan and Brandon University.  I have been a member of the EIA for 4 years now and am active in multiple different organizations throughout the province.  I am very excited to be part of this Executive team and look forward to the events in the coming year.

I have almost 15 successful years in the insurance industry. While I have spent the last 8 years dedicating my underwriting knowledge to the farming sector, I also have some experience in working with small business type accounts.  I am currently working towards obtaining my CIP designation. I have been a part of the Edmonton Insurance Association Executive since 2012. Since 2012, I have been on the Executive in a few rolls, Treasurer, President and now in my second term as the Director. I continue to help plan numerous networking events including the Food Bank, Night at the races and Membership night. I love being part of this team and our national team.  I have learned so much, and it has helped me come out of my shell.  I look forward to many years to come.
