I began my career in the life insurance industry in 1978; many firms were not hiring women to be in sales in that male-dominated field. After several attempts, and not giving up, I found a major life insurance company with a young general agent who not only gave me the chance I needed but was huge support over the years I worked with him. In 2005, after working for other companies, I started Sandbrook Group to better serve my clients, who are largely small business owners.  In 2017, I further created a signature program for those same clients to do succession planning and their eventual exit from their business, either voluntarily or involuntarily- something that is largely overlooked in this market.  I also assist them in getting their business “sale ready” if their goal is to sell their business as an exit strategy,
