Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I’m passionate about helping my members determine their financial goals. We work together to help create a plan based on their unique needs.

I serve members in…

Rumford, Farmington, Turner and surrounding communities.

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

families of all ages. From newlyweds planning their new families to those planning for and approaching retirement. Through all phases of life, people's needs change. It is exciting to make a plan and see them through to comfortable golden years.

I am very proud of…

achieving President's Cabinet and Million Dollar Round Table status, as well as being in the top five Modern Woodmen agents in the nation for 2015.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

worked in a saw mill for eight years as I started my young family. From there I went to work with a large insurance company. As an agent, competing against Modern Woodmen was next to impossible. It was better to join them!

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

of the high-degree integrity of the society. The financial products offered through Modern Woodmen are great. They are truly developed with the consumer in mind.

The best part of my career is…

making a positive impact on my clients' financial positions. Accumulating wealth is just one factor of a financial plan. Protecting it is also very important. It is very rewarding to see a plan through.

A favorite moment in my career was when…

I shook the hand of a retiring client at the gate of the mill on his last day of work. We had been planning for the day for years. It is one of the proudest moments a financial representative can experience.


Before entering the insurance industry I personally did not have life insurance. Like many people, I looked at it as a bill I could do without. "Young people don't die early," I said to myself. I couldn't have been more wrong. Since then I have seen many surviving family members struggle after an untimely death. The need for life insurance is very real.

My life outside of work

My family includes…

Marie, my bride of 30 years, and four adult children, Aaron, Krista, Kaitlyn and Andrew.

In my free time, you can find me…

in the great outdoors. I am an avid outdoorsman. I enjoy hunting, fishing and just about anything the outdoors can give. I hold a Registered Maine Guide license, which allows me the opportunity to share my love of the outdoors with others.

I’m passionate about…

spending time with family and friends in the woods, on the water, or simply talking about being there.

My greatest blessing is…

my incredible family and all of our health.

My personal motto is…

"Treat people like people, with the respect and dignity everyone deserves."

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

my whole life. I was born in Rumford Hospital and educated in Rumford schools. Lord willing, I plan to be here for the remainder of my years.

What I like best about my community is…

small town values. Yes, we have our quirks, but home is where the heart is.

I’m a member of…

the Maine Professional Guides Association, River Valley Chamber of Commerce, Farmington Chamber of Commerce, Farmington Downtown Business Association.
