Kellie started working in the insurance industry in 1995, her knowledge and expertise is second to none. Holding a Diploma financial services (broking) and obtaining certification for being a QPIB qualified practising insurance broker & a CIP certified insurance professional her qualifications speak volumes when talking about her experience.

Whether you have a small business, commercial or corporate enterprise – if you don’t have the right insurances your business may not survive a loss.

Kellie’s journey with her own insurance business started because she noticed that as time moves forward, life seems to become more automated and distant… “you deal with one person to write the insurance, another for a claim and so on… and you lose the personal touch”.

“I wanted to branch out so I could still offer my clients a broad scope of cover,” with access to the entire underwriting market, yet be able to back this up with personalised service – This is important to me as it enables me to develop great relationships and connections with my clients.

Away from work Kellie enjoys riding horses and socialising with her family & friends
