If you need help with child delivery in your car, I’m your guy. I work well under pressure and try to bring that confidence to work when we need it. At OCI, I work hard to deliver a group support team that you can’t work without.
Devoted movie junkie and proud connoisseur of every episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Saved by the Bell. When not hating how much I love golf, I enjoy becoming close business partners and friends with the clients who make my job a daily adventure. (I love adventure).
As the youngest person in the office, I try to bring the energy every day (usually aided by coffee). I am an outdoorsman/sports junkie and I relish my very important job of being my nieces’ and nephews’ favorite uncle. As an Account Executive anything is fair game, so don’t be afraid to ask.
Coaching Special Olympics is my passion. Being a mom is my obsession. Managing the OCI office is my profession. I strive to make the daily operations run smoothly so we can keep our eyes on the next adventure.
Some of the words used to describe me by coworkers might be patient, or the calm before the storm. The answer may vary on whether the person is related to me or not! My interests of traveling, tasting wine, reading, and spending time with family and friends have given me ample opportunities for both. My goal at work is to always try to view client issues as if they were happening to me and react accordingly.
Multitasking is my middle name…well, really it’s Ann…but multitasking is what I do as the front desk receptionist at OCI. My co-workers love me because I’m the one that keeps the candy dish stocked, but I hope that is not the only reason! Hopefully, they’d also say that I’m cheery on the phone, greet guests with a smile, get incoming mail to the right people, oh, and did I mention stock the candy dish?
“It’s a great day at OCI” is what you will hear when you call us, but after work you might hear me sing 80’s songs at karaoke, one of my favorite things to do!
When I started at OCI in 2012, I was quiet, assisted with group sales, and kept as far away from management as possible. Now, I am quiet and landed a management position overseeing the Group Sales Department. When I’m not in the office, I like to watch baseball and football…quietly.
As a woodworking enthusiast, I like building things. Like a good table, good business relationships take time, trust, and the right materials. Very seldom is something perfect, and fortunately I enjoy the challenge of finding the missing piece to make something work. You might also find me engrossed in Sci-Fi and Fantasy stories, board games with my wife and daughter, or cheering on my Tigers. Mizzou-Rah!
Details, details, details…. Some like to give details a bad rap but they are my favorite part! Be assured I’m double checking every detail… for fun! I work to make clients lives easier and maybe every now and then make people smile with my tasteful yet edgy wit. As a lifelong athlete I enjoy watching sports, spending time with my husband and kids, competing in Crossfit, and continuing my search for the world best Americano.
It’s 3:00 AM and you are in the Emergency Room and you are advised that you are not eligible for benefits. Take an aspirin and call me in the morning and I guarantee I will get your issue resolved.
Your dog has eaten your ID card and you need to see your primary physician. Call me and I will get you an alternate ID number and advise you on getting a temporary ID card.
While on vacation in France, you get very ill and you have to pay the hospital expenses. Upon returning to the U.S., contact me and I will help you get reimbursed so that you can replace your i-Phone that you lost at the hospital.
Consistency, Flexibility and Determination. That’s the name of the game for me.
Although, Dotting the I’s and Crossing the T’s are vital to me. Relaxing and having fun with what you do is also an essential part of my plan, both on and off the job. Let’s face it, at the end of the day we still face tomorrow.
I’m in Group Sales and administer enrollments, terminations, and changes on carrier portals as well as investigate claims and research inquiries from brokers and clients. The favorite part of my week is the weekend when I can wear yoga pants and hang with family and friends.
I go by Nate, or “Number 3”, whichever you prefer. My day-to-day includes ensuring group quoting and submissions are handled in a quick and efficient manner. Working closely with clients on a case from start to finish is my favorite part of working at OCI. Away from work you will find me watching hockey, eating pizza, and spending as much time as possible at the lake.
Starting off my career in education I did a complete flip and ended up in insurance. However, I love educating our agents on all of the newest and most exciting changes that we see every day in our industry. When I am not at the office I love spending time with my large family but, especially my puppies and husband.
Being a Cubs and Huskers fan is hard. Being surrounded by Cardinal and Hawkeye fans in the office is even harder. Thankfully, when it comes time to work, we all share the same goal – ensuring the people you care about are being taken care of. Together, we’ll fight the good fight and finish the race for you. Enabling you to protect and sustain what matters most in the game of life. Yes, even you Steve Bartman.
As an assistant to the Individual Sales Team, I am responsible for checking voicemails, emails, statuses of applications, and most importantly what candy Sarah has for us upfront today. I am a “super” Marvel comic book movie fan. Sometimes I wish I could be a superhero, but I will settle for “saving” individuals money on their health insurance. When I am not wrangling my pre-schooler, I also enjoy watching the Huskers and Chiefs disappoint me almost every weekend from September to January.
I am blessed to have a wonderful wife and terrific twin boys that I get to go home to everyday. After spending 15 years in the Washington, D.C. area, it’s great to be back in Nebraska.
At OCI, I am a member of our individual health sales team. In this capacity, I handle multiple client related issues while providing exceptional customer service and support. It’s a rewarding feeling being part of such a dedicated and knowledgeable team of experts that strive everyday to provide insurance solutions for clients and families across the nation.
Some would say I never met a stranger, through work and volunteering I am sure to find a connection. I seek others to help them out with coverage when one finds themselves feeling “blue” and assure to protect the loved ones for years to come. My three kids and wife keep me on my toes and racing in the journey. I am a bird lover, Cardinals baseball, that is, to watch and learn in the game of life.
I love my life and I am blessed to have a great wife and sons who provide drive and ambition to my character. I wanted to become a Laker at one point in time to play with Kobe Bryant, but that didn’t work out so I love my role as an individual administrator at OCI. Everyday driving to work it feels like driving to my second home. The leaders and employees at OCI make it easy for me to love my job. I enjoy the challenge of learning the insurance industry, providing support to agents and their personnel.
After relocating to Omaha from Scottsbluff and starting at OCI in 2009, I have worked my way through the Group department and have found my happy place working with our brokers and their clients on 50/50 Individual policies. For the two hours a day I find myself not at work or asleep, I seem to have a new found appreciation for really bad reality TV and takeout.
You might say I’m a coffee snob, you might not. But, then you would be one too. What’s wrong with wanting a good cup of coffee in your hand? It helps me maintain/write code and answer any helpdesk question here at OCI – what, it does?!
When I am not fixing problems and helping people around the office with their computers, I am at home with my wife and four girls tinkering with software, raspberry pis (mini computers) and more often than not playing a video game aka Minecraft, Legend of Zelda.
If my life played out the way I intended, I would be a billionaire, playboy and ingenious engineer – Tony Stark style. In real life, I am a thousandaire, in a committed relationship, and an ingenious director of commissions – fighting for the justice of our brokers.
After a long career in the travel industry, I decided it was time for a change. Organization, attention to detail, a knack for numbers, and dealing with a diverse array of people are my strengths so the licensing department (with some dabbling in commissions) at OCI seemed like a perfect fit. I love that I get to help people AND be a “number nerd” (a nickname given to me by my old co-workers)!
Although I’m very social, there’s no place I’d rather be than at home with my husband and two (soon to be three) daughters watching sports…especially Duke basketball and Steelers football!
If you need premium pixel power (translation: graphic design/web design) mixed with a healthy dose of marketing then I’m your go-to resource. When I’m not revising, retouching or retweeting I’m probably enjoying a cup (or three) of espresso, spending time with family or planning the next time I can return to a locale with a beach.
My favorite part of my job is working with the quality individuals who make up the OCI family. My title is CEO (Chief Expense Officer) but I have put many years of my life into the foundation and expansion of the company. I am a proud employee of 35 bosses, father of 3, big papa to 10, wine connoisseur, avid yet terrible golfer and jetsetter (more likely airplane setter).
A giver by nature, illustrated by my generous donation of CO2 every day, I love giving all that I can to the mission of OCI. The team here makes it easy to love work because they take a lot of pride in what they do and have a lot of fun doing it. When I’m not at work I help herd our four wonderful children and work to broaden my craft beer knowledge one tasting at a time.
They say “if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life”. Although OCI pays me to help brokers implement worksite benefits for their clients, to me, I am privileged to be making new friends and helping them protect their lifestyle for the unexpected. When I’m not dreaming of my happy place in Jamaica, I am probably planning my next play day with one of my grandkids. Life is good and I wake with a grateful heart every day!
