Tel: (905) 685-8500 x 213

With 24 years' experience in the business, Kerry first became RIBO licenced in 1986 at Nacora Insurance Brokers Inc in Toronto, Ontario. Hired as a summertime file girl, Nacora Insurance liked Kerry's work ethic and offered her the opportunity to get my licence. Kerry took the 2-week course in Toronto and began my lifetime career. This was back in the day when we had typewriters and had to manually type out every liability slip. After 3 years of commuting to Toronto from St. Catharines Kerry decided to find a job in the Niagara Region. Kerry has been married for 29 years and has 3 amazing children and with no doubt that is the hardest job that she has ever taken on and kept, no manual, no training and no pay but created my legacy and proud of it.

With falling back on what we know best, Kerry wrote the RIBO once again in 2007 and continued her lifelong journey in the insurance industry in personal lines as a customer service representative. Kerry loves helping people with their needs and letting them know they are in good safe hands.
