Life insurance policies are designed to grant beneficiaries or loved ones a sum of money in the event of your death.
This can also extend to cases that require intensive medical care or scenarios in which an individual is unable to provide for themselves or their family due to disability.
Life insurance is an excellent way to guarantee that loved ones will be able to maintain their standard of living and cover basic needs even if you’re not there to provide for them.
I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela from European parents.
My father was the first entrepreneur in Venezuela to import Kodak products and the first one to sell hot dogs at the Coney Island in Caracas back in 1945. He passed away when I was 17.
My dad didn’t have life insurance so my mother and brothers had to work hard to keep the business going.
I went to Lausanne, Switzerland to study languages and then went to Business school at Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, Venezuela.
Eventually, I joined a charity organization called WIZO (Women International Zionist Organization) an event that changed my life!!!
I learned first hand what it was to help people in need! We organized charity events to raise funds. I was elected chairperson which was a terrific opportunity for me.
This led me to open my Public Relations agency, and later work at the only English newspaper in Venezuela, The Daily Journal as Sales and Marketing Director. After 3 months we managed to raise the sales so much I was promoted to General Manager.
Then I went to IESA school to study in an Advanced Management Program, the prestigious PAG, where I organized many social and charity events. We joined and helped the orphanage FUNDANA, as volunteers.
Thanks to that experience one of my PR clients – the wealth management firm Activalores – offered me a position as Vice President of New Business where I worked for many years as a financial advisor.
In 2009 I decided to move to Israel to be close to my children Tam and Samuel. There I worked as Sales Manager for Latin America, France, Italy and Spain for Sharon Laboratories.
When living in Israel and thanks to Facebook, I reunited with my childhood’s first love – after 38 years, who is now my husband Rafael. He brought me to live in this great city of Los Angeles in 2013.
When I emigrated to Los Angeles I decided I wanted to do something meaningful with my life. Helping people through life insurance gives me great satisfaction.
I’m independent meaning that I work with all the insurance companies. Well, not really. I only work with the ones with excellent ratings but most importantly, those who are a good fit for each kind of client.
