Meet our executive team
I have almost 9 successful years in the insurance industry. While I have spent the last 4 years dedicating my underwriting knowledge to the farming sector, I also have experience in writing small business. I am currently working towards obtaining my CIP designation. I have been a part of the Edmonton Insurance Association Executive since 2012 as Treasurer for 2 terms and President for the last 3 years. 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. I have learned so much and it has helped me come out of my shell. I look forward to many years to come.
I have been in the insurance industry for almost 6 years now, starting off at Canadian Direct Insurance as a Sales Advisor and then Sales Supervisor. I am now developing in my role as an Auto Underwriter with Portage Mutual Insurance where I have been for a 1 1/2 years, which has been a continuous learning and growing experience. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree, Bachelor of Education Degree, have recently completed my CIP and am currently working towards my CRM designation. I have been a part of the Edmonton Insurance Association for over a year and am in my first term as Treasurer. 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. I have greatly enjoyed my time with the EIA and look forward to many years to come.
I have been a recruiter in the insurance industry for 2 years with Perkins Professional Search. I have completed my Human Resources Diploma and am currently working towards the completion of a Bachelor of Commerce Degree. I have seen the Edmonton Insurance Association put on so many wonderful networking events, and I cannot wait to help ensure the success of future events.
Director and Past President
I have been a member of the Edmonton Insurance Association since 2008 and started full time in the insurance industry 13 years ago with my employer Economical Insurance. My career has been focused in Commercial auto, my previous role being Senior Fleet Underwriter, and in August 2014 moved into the role of Team Leader of Technical Processing.
I have completed my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta, CIP in 2007, CRM in 2008 and FCIP in 2009 and all of this Education has definitely helped get me to where I am!
The Edmonton Insurance Association was something I became involved in because I enjoyed networking and building relationships at the events they offered. I remember my first big event, the Night at the Races, I was able to meet the current CAIW president at the time and thought to myself I need to join this National association. It has opened doors for me; given me experience leading meetings, organizing large events and a network of Insurance professionals across Canada that I can contact at any time. I became a CAIW Director 2 years ago and this year was voted in as CAIW Secretary on the National Executive, this is a further step in the organization and it continues to develop my leadership abilities and helps me network with successful women in the industry across Canada.
I live with my husband and our dog Hobbit, we love to camp and go on hikes, our most recent one was the Inca trail in Peru. I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking and running in my free time.
I began my insurance career in 1985 with a regional Alberta insurer. I have worked as a personal lines underwriter, marketing representative, personal lines manager and now on the broker side of insurance. I have been a member of the EIA since 1988, holding several positions with the EIA over the last 25 years. The association has made it possible for me to meet and network with all different areas of the insurance industry in Alberta and across Canada and it has been truly a fantastic experience.
I have been in the insurance industry since 1988. I have worked as a CSR, commercial underwriter, personal lines underwriter and I am now the Branch Manager for the Portage Mutual Insurance Company.

I have held several executive positions within the EIA and I am currently the Membership Chairperson and Food Bank Drive Chairperson.
