Key Quotes:

  • “I love being a part of that voice in the industry, and hopefully encouraging other women to find their voice and be leaders, and get out there and build their own space within the insurance industry.” – Teresa Kitchens
  • “I think it’s just such a fun industry right now to be in…To watch it grow and change and evolve, and the people’s personalities to come out in their own agencies. I think that’s fabulous.” – Teresa Kitchens
  • “If we are against each other, we have less of an opportunity to truly survive this whole tech boom, or whatever we want to call it in the insurance industry. With all the tech companies coming on, and to be able to kind of take over the insurance space…e need to band together to be able to create a community, and a voice that makes people proud to be an insurance agent, and to be able to allow this profession to go on, and provide for our children moving forward and everything else.” – Teresa Kitchens
