About Michaela

I’ve been in the insurance industry since 2004 as a commercial insurance advisor. I work with both small and large businesses and love the challenge that each day can bring, because most days are never the same.

I have a passion for helping others and strive to exceed client expectations by being dedicated, professional, and delivering a high level of customer service. I constantly educate and drive myself to be better, as there is always something new to learn. This allows me to better advise my clients and build trust and long-lasting relationships with them.

I joined Leavitt Group Southwest because they are a family-oriented business that allows flexibility for their employees. As an independent agency we have access to numerous carriers so we can customize insurance products to meet our client’s needs.

I also love how Leavitt Group supports training and continuing education for their employees so we can grow and succeed in our careers. I’ve participated in these learning opportunities as a member of The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research and by receiving my Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation.

I grew up in Silver City, New Mexico and am married with two sons. I enjoy traveling to new places and love being active outdoors. My family and I go hiking, kayaking, or fishing every chance we get. I also like reading, baking, and the occasional wine tasting.

One of my favorite quotes is from Maya Angelou – “Success is loving life and daring to live it.”
