I have worked for Marine Expert, now known as April Marine, for the past fourteen (14) years. I am currently an APRIL Marine Insurance underwriter as well as the primary contact to our broker partners for new business. 

My specialty is sharing the expertise that I have gained throughout my tenure as well as the unique relationships that I have formed with our broker partners. Great service as well as understanding our broker’s needs are two important aspects of the business.

The diversity of tasks and the fact that I thoroughly enjoy boating also makes my job easy.
