I BELIEVE it is important to work for a company whose values resonate with my own. I value generosity, personal responsibility, empowering others, and community service. I have spent my entire career at Northwestern Mutual for one simple is a company reflective of my beliefs and allows me to live and honor my values; both inside and outside the organization.
Within the company, I have been granted the opportunity to develop my leadership and mentoring skills to grow a vibrant financial services firm known for its service to our clients and to the wider community. I am fully committed to attracting, developing and retaining high quality colleagues, giving them every tool to be successful and instilling the values which will allow them to serve their clients with integrity and conviction for years to come.
MY COMMUNITY COMMITMENT is to impact people's lives and help build a stronger world by helping people become purposeful and self-sufficient. I am proud to have been honored as a Difference Maker by BusinessWest in the inaugural class of 2009. This honor is bestowed yearly to a select group of area professionals to acknowledge leadership and service to the community. In addition, I have been honored by the Professional Women's Chamber of Western Massachusetts as Woman of the Year in 2011, and by The Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield as the 2015 Richard J. Moriarty Citizen of the Year. In 2018, I was honored by the Community Foundation of Western MA with the Distinguished Advisor in Philanthropy award. My community commitments include co-founding both the Western MA Dress for Success affiliate and the Worcester Dress for Success affiliate organization; both of these assist low-income women to become economically self-sufficient. My board involvement has included the Women's Fund of Western Massachusetts; the Sisters of Providence Health Systems; and Friends of the Homeless and I currently serve on the Boards of Girls Inc. of Holyoke;  Our Lady of the Elms College; and am Vice Chair of the Board for the Springfield Museums.
Springfield is a city which has supported Northwestern Mutual for over 100 years.  I have found Springfield leaders and residents to be welcoming and open to collaboration and new ideas. I am proud to lead an organization contributing on so many levels to the health of our local community by providing outstanding client financial services, growing topnotch colleagues, and impacting the greater good with volunteer service.
The original mandate of Northwestern Mutual has remained unchanged from 100 years ago. I am proud to quote from our company's original mission statement currently hanging in our entry way and continuing to inspire me daily.
"The ambition of Northwestern Mutual has been less to be large than to be rank first in benefits to policy owners rather than first in size, valuing quality over quantity...pre-eminently the policy owners company."
We are here to serve our clients and impact people's lives. Please let me know how we can assist you in the obtainment of your financial goals and dreams.
