In 2013 I purchased Willow Insurance Corp, an insurance brokerage in Shell Lake. While I have a background in corporate finance, I did not have any previous brokerage experience, so I only had a short window to complete my education and licensing requirements, shadow the existing owner and whip up a business plan. Then in the first year of business, I welcomed my first child. A few short years later, another opportunity arose for the purchase of a second brokerage in Debden, and while I was now pregnant with my second, I decided to expand Willow Insurance Corp., this time returning to the office with a one-week-old. As a full-time entrepreneur and mother, I manage five staff split across two locations, and each location offers a full suite of commercial and personal insurance products. As a fully licensed broker with a finance education, I look for ways to improve the business.
