Welcome to InsuranceLab New England.

I appreciate you stopping by to see if InsuranceLab New England fits with what you want to accomplish and how you like things done. While it is important for me to make your experience quick and easy and find you great rates, I am also passionate about helping you understand your options. Finding you the best coverages for your premium dollar is just the beginning of creating the right formula. Insurance is a legally binding contract with many variables that, unless properly addressed, can leave coverage gaps you might not realize are there until something happens. If a loss occurs it can be unsettling to find you paid your policy premium for years, but the coverages you have aren’t what you think they are. In certain situations, it can even be financially devastating.

When shopping for insurance, I believe the process should feel easy and efficient. However, at the same time, the right questions need to be asked in order to understand the nuances of each situation. There might be additional discounts and better-fitting options that are not apparent from just looking at an online quote. There can be coverage differences in sub-limits or details in the contract that exclude coverage under certain circumstances. Even if you like what you see online, consulting a trusted and experienced agent prior to making a decision is beneficial and adds no extra cost. The details matter, as does transparency, integrity, experience, and accountability.

I have over 10 years of industry experience—the last three at the GEICO Boston South Shore office. While there, I managed and helped centralize the property insurance department and concurrently achieved top producer each year. In addition to the experience being professionally and personally rewarding, it was a great opportunity to understand the requirements of a fast-paced, high-volume, online-driven environment and realize the benefits of fusing the best attributes of that model with the best attributes of what an independent agency offers. Prior to GEICO, I was with AAA Southern California in their Hawaii office. That was a great experience for different reasons. Over the past years, I have written thousands of policies and helped clients meet their goals of finding savings while securing quality coverage. I am excited about seeing what value I can bring to you.

It is important to me to give back to our community via local non-profits. I am a proud member of the Boston Arts Academy Advisory Council. For every customer referral, I will make a donation to either the Boston Arts Academy or the Greater Boston Food Bank. I’d love to learn about non-profit organizations you believe in! Ask me about other referral options and programs.

For a quote or policy review, reach out to me by whichever method works best for you—call, text, email, click on my link for a quick comparison quote, or fill out the contact form. There is also a chat button on the bottom right. If you prefer to meet in person, the office is located in Norwood, right around the corner from Boch Hyundai. For now, in-person meetings are done by appointment only. Looking forward to connecting with you!
