Administration and Training Coordinator
Account Manager – Property & Casualty
One of my personal goals at United Agencies/High Ground is to help the talented Account Executives, Account Managers, and Account Assistants at our agency reach their full professional potential and see the rewards that flow from a well-functioning agency. To do so I employ a mixture of formal training, informal mentoring, and cooperative learning that takes into account the fact that no two individuals succeed in exactly the same way.
When a new employee joins our agency I ask two questions; “How can we help you achieve your career goals?” and “What have you learned previously that we might use to improve our agency operations.”
Kristen joined United Agencies/High Ground in 2010 to assist our team on various projects in Commercial Lines, Benefits and Management departments as needed. She brings 26 years of experience in the insurance industry beginning at Jack Sonntag Insurance and Frankel and Company. She spent 14 years at Dodge, Warren & Peters Insurance as a Technical Assistant and Supervisor. Kristen took 2 years off to spend with her children and returned to Dodge, Warren & Peters as a lead on special projects and training. She spent 3 years at Brakke-Schafnitz Insurance as an Account Manager and came full circle in 2010 to return to work with former co-workers and management at High Ground Insurance.
Kristen lives in Torrance, with her husband and has two children in college.
