Insurance provides independence, just ask the person with the name on the door
The founder and namesake of the Baker Insurance Group has survived more than 25 years as an insurance agent in an industry where the average lifespan is less than two years. Her secret? She loves what she does.
Theresa Baker has thrived in the competitive financial service industry by providing her clients with peace of mind at a reasonable price. The commitment to her clients has only intensified with changes to the healthcare industry on the horizon.
“Obamacare is coming. We have no choice,” she posted on her blog. “We cannot just sit around and cry in our soup. It’s all how you choose to look at things!”
Baker has chosen to take advantage of the available options under the Affordable Care Act by increasing the premiums she pays to obtain more comprehensive coverage for her family. Her candid approach to her own insurance decisions is just another reason why the Snoqualmie resident has become a popular motivational speaker in community forums both inside and out of the insurance industry.
In addition to her professional responsibilities and her duties as a wife and mother, Baker maintains memberships with:
- The National Ethics Bureau
- The American Association of Long-Term Care Insurance
- The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA)
- Snoqualmie Valley Women in Business
- Snoqualmie and Issaquah Chambers of Commerce
- She is also scheduled to serve as 2013-14 president of the Plateau Partners chapter of Business Networking Inc. in Sammamish.
Her ability to make informed decisions based on individual needs is a responsibility that Theresa Baker takes seriously. Insurance, she explains, offers individuals freedom from worry about the inevitable.
“That’s why I started Baker Insurance Group as an Independent Agency.”
