“I didn’t want to be stuck in life.”

Your career as a managing partner is full of important moments. You’ll guide and train your team members to impact lives in their communities. As you do, you’ll impact lives yourself … and you’ll have some fun along the way.

  • Was a student-athlete at UC Riverside before joining Modern Woodmen.
  • Always wanted to be a professional soccer player.
  • Realized the opportunity Modern Woodmen presented to me and never looked back.
  • Became a managing partner just one year later.

Hector in the community

I provided financial support to my old high school team.

Modern Woodmen chapters and youth service clubs regularly participate in fundraisers to support community causes and people in need.

I was able to go back to my old high school and present a Matching Fund check for the kids. A sophomore boy asked me what I did, and he said that’s what he wants to do when he grows up. That’s the impact I love having in people’s lives.

Promises and peace of mind

Delivering my first death claim changed my perspective completely.

The impact I had on that family because of my career has no words. They saw me as their salvation.

The moment I delivered the check, they told me, “Thank you for what you’ve done. Without you, who knows what would have happened.” This experience really showed me my moral obligation to have those tough conversations with people about life insurance.
