"Integrity: Choosing courage over comfort, choosing what's right over what's fun, fast or easy and putting those values to practice, not just professing your values" - Brene Brown
The necessities in Lisa's life are her family (including rescue pup Major), reading, fitness, sunshine and girls nights! The list goes on...exploring, cooking, home projects, movie nights and volunteering at her church or other community organizations that give back. Lisa & husband Aaron are continuing to work on their "bucket list" with things like bungee jumping, an Oakland Raiders game, Michael Buble concert and a 2017 trip to Europe. Next on the list...skydiving.
At NTI since 2008, she says "This agency has hooked me because of the team, the fun and the desire to be better every day. We make it a daily challenge to find better ways to excel, treat our team with appreciation and give back to our community."
"Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different..." - CS Lewis
Aaron believes that adversity refines Character.
Family, friends, new relationships are very important to Aaron. He sees every interaction with others as a chance to learn and grow. That is one reason he loves serving his community, living a life that matters and giving back whenever possible. This is the same way he works with his clients ... with a heart of service.
Aaron has thrived in the transition from a manufacturing background to the insurance industry. He is developing a specialty in Commercial policies and has completed an AAI designation (for non insurance nerds, that is Accredited Advisor in Insurance). He is looking forward to bringing that knowledge to his clients to, not only offer advice, but to make sure their livelihoods are protected.
