Role

Underwriting & Benefit Consultant

Serving in the Southeastern benefit market for over 25 years, Kelley has seen almost every facet of the industry: large carriers, large benefit brokerage houses, fully-insured plans, self-funded models, you name it, for both publicly-traded and closely-held private companies. Kelley has perfected the “lost art” of underwriting. Today, carriers expect employers to accept a renewal based on what the computer spits out, but Kelley is able to analyze the information and recognize whether the proposed renewal is truly appropriate.

What do you do to vent?

I play volleyball on a weekly basis to get out most of my frustrations. If you catch me mid week and I can't get into a gym, I CLEAN! Floors, cabinets, counter tops, you name it. I clean it and move onto the next room until I've calmed down.

What’s the one thing you always wanted to be, growing up?

A Special Education teacher.

Favorite road trip ever taken:

When I was about 11 years old, my Grandmother took me and my little brother to Hershey Park. Just the three of us in her Grand Am. We listened to the Beach Boys sound track the entire way there and back. By the time we got home, I had memorized all of the songs. Every I hear "California Girls", I think of that trip!

You’ll never forget when...

I was three and my older brother told my parents that I lit our mattress on fire and the entire house almost went up in flames. He finally ‘fessed' up 10 years later, was grounded and had to do ALL my chores for 1 month. The sweet taste of victory!
