Meet Core Value Award Winner Paula Vasse - December 2023

Meet Core Value Award Winner Paula Vasse - December 2023

January 02, 2024

Every month, Schwartz Insurance Group selects a peer-nominated associate to receive a Core Value Award. The winner is chosen because they "lived" one of our agency's core values - typically an event or accomplishment above and beyond the call of duty in serving our customers. For December, Paula Vasse has "lived" our core value of "Building on a Legacy."

Here's her story:

We all hope for a controlled, comfortable transition into any new phase of life. When it comes to certain business transactions, it might not feel that way for those who remain to carry on.

But time helps to heal all wounds. And a person who is loyal, dedicated, respectful and willing to be vocal about their plans in advance has our trust and is appreciated. It allows for a simpler transition and is truly a gold star path to the next phase in one’s golden life.

Paula Vasse has served us – and all our clients – well for many years. She is always Building on a Legacy!

Here, in her own words, is a little more information about Paula: 

What do you find most challenging about your role as a key Business Advisor? Do you have any advice for others on how to stay cool under pressure?

I believe the most challenging part is getting the insured/prospect to provide the required information needed to work on the account – especially in a timely manner. I just try to make the best out of every situation with a positive attitude.

Let’s pretend you never entered the insurance field. What career would you have chosen?

Years ago, I would have said I would have liked to be a teacher.  But now, I would choose a career that would allow me to be more involved with people helping them with whatever could make their life more comfortable and happy.

What adjective best describes you?

Thought about this long and hard.  Even asked the family.  Did not come up with the same word twice.  So, the only word I can come up with is “indescribable” because one word just won’t do it!

Are you a Louisville native? If so, we have to ask: UK or U of L?

Yes, indeed, I am a Louisville native – so U of L!

The book or the movie?

The movie.

What’s your favorite musical genre? Country, rock and roll, classical…?

I like songs from every genre … with the exception of “rap.”

Congratulations on your Core Value Award, Paula - and thank you for doing such an excellent job for Schwartz Insurance Group. You are appreciated!
