Meet Core Value Award Winner: Jenna Corwin - September 2020

Posted by Matt Schwartz on Tue, Sep 8, 2020 @ 09:09 AM

image-pngEvery 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, Jenna Corwin has "lived" our core value of "Building on a Legacy." 

Here's her story:

New leadership can be a good thing ... or it can be edgy, as in new decision makers.  Over many months, the new HR team at a large benefits client questioned all we did. A bit frustrating, but we know we deliver.

We kept our wits and stayed focused – deliberately doing all the little things that kept life simple for an entire HR team – and over time, they appreciated us a little more every day.  Finally, the moment arrived!

One email that summarized it all – “I so appreciate ALL the little things you do to keep us on track and to keep my life simple.”  Jenna Corwin delivered on our mission and that is Building on a Legacy!

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

You've been with Schwartz Insurance Group for over two years now. What do you find most rewarding about your role as Benefits Advisor? Most challenging?

There are two aspects to my position that I find most rewarding. First, I love being able to share good news and save clients money when we find lower quotes during open enrollment. Secondly, I enjoy presenting to employees to help explain benefits in an easy-to-understand way. What I find most challenging is the 4th quarter - it's insanely busy! 

Do you have any personal interests or hobbies?

I enjoy swimming laps, reading, sewing/quilting, cooking, as well as spending time with my family, friends and pets.

If you could vacation anywhere in the world (money being no object), where would you visit?

If I could go anywhere, I would really like to travel to Australia.

What's your favorite movie of all time?

Well, I'm not sure about my favorite movie, but my favorite thing to watch is a TV show called "Impractical Jokers." I love that series!

Rock and roll or country music?

I enjoy listening to a little bit of everything!

Tell us about the pets in the Corwin household. Feel free to brag!

I have a small Beagle/Jack-Russell mix named Heidi, who I rescued. She is black and white and has such a sweet, calm demeanor. Last summer, I also adopted a mini Golden Doodle puppy named Ruby - she gets crazier by the day! She has reddish, curly hair but her face, paws and tail are white. Both dogs love to go for walks and they enjoy playing with their basket of 20 million toys in the living room! 

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