I’m a … Modern Woodmen managing partner in Stockbridge, Ga.

My family includes … my husband, Jason, and children Autumn, 21, Colby, 10, and Scarlett, 5.
Before Modern Woodmen, I was … vice president of operations for an estate planning marketing organization in Atlanta. For more than 12 years, I worked to help hundreds of families with their estate and financial planning needs. Then, the company abruptly relocated to Irvine, Calif.
Why I began a career with Modern Woodmen … Prior to losing my job, my father-in-law, a Modern Woodmen regional director, had approached me about joining Modern Woodmen. I chose not to leave. When I lost my job, he approached me again, and I joined Modern Woodmen in 2011. Knowing what I know now, I wish I had made that decision years ago! Hindsight is always 20/20.
I chose Modern Woodmen because … I was impressed with Modern Woodmen’s story and stability. To me, Modern Woodmen wasn't like all the other financial services organizations. It was unique. My beliefs and Modern Woodmen's creed* were one in the same. 
The best part of my career is … helping agents and families achieve their dreams and goals with Modern Woodmen’s products and fraternal benefits.
