Meet Core Value Winner: Debbie Arduino - October 2016

Meet Core Value Winner: Debbie Arduino - October 2016

October 17, 2016

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. This month, Debbie Arduino has "lived" our core value of  "Consider it Done." Here's her story:

If not handled properly, COBRA, the federal law for continuing health coverage, is just as dangerous as the actual snake.  It can bite you without warning.

A long-time physician client’s coverage terminated one month early, leaving an unexpected gap.  Oops.  And the carrier was moving slowly.  Fortunately, he put his Schwartz team on it.  Within a day, his problem was solved and he could refocus on his priorities.

Debbie Arduino may be new to us, but she knows how to solve a problem.  Whether it's a COBRA bite or any other difficulty, hand it over to her and Consider it Done!

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

How long have you been working in the insurance industry?

About eight months now, and I'm glad I was able to join the team here at Schwartz Insurance Group.

What do you enjoy most about being an Employee Benefits Advocate?

I find helping people to be a very rewarding experience.

Are you a Louisville native? What's your favorite thing about living in the Derby City?

Yes, I was born and raised here. Even though Louisville feels like a big city, the people are small-town friendly.

If you could vacation anywhere in the world (money being no object), where would that be and why?

I love the beach, so it would have to be somewhere I could rest, relax and hang out by the sea.

Rock and roll or country music?

Definitely country music!

Tell us about your hobbies or personal interests.

I love to read - and hang out with family and friends.

What brings you true happiness?

Spending time with my family and friends always makes me happy.

Congratulations, Debbie, on your Core Value Award - and thank you for doing such a great job for Schwartz Insurance Group. You are appreciated!
