Colleen started working in the insurance industry in 1996 and joined PayneWest Insurance in 1997. She started as the receptionist and quickly moved into business insurance three months later. She has earned her Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR) designation and participates in many continuing education classes to keep up with the ever-changing world of insurance.
In Colleen’s free time, she enjoys the outdoors with her husband whether it’s downhill skiing in the winter, whitewater rafting in the summer or working in their yard and garden during the spring and summer.
PayneWest is beyond grateful for our committed colleagues and we are glad to have Colleen as a part of the PayneWest family. Congratulations, Colleen, on your 20-year anniversary; we look forward to many more.
