KAZ COMPANY was started in August of 1990. For 17 years it was a manufacturer’s rep company selling school supplies and office products to office dealers and big box stores. The reputation of the company was based on customer service. In 2007, after the company’s largest customer moved out of the state, the office products contracts were sold ending the manufacturer’s rep chapter of the business.

In 2010 the company redefined itself as an Independent Insurance Agency that focuses on Medicare supplements, Advantage Plans, Part D prescription plans and long term care plans. Again the growth and reputation of the company is based on meeting the needs of the client.

The company represents many Medicare insurance carriers, it educates you to the plans that best meet your needs and the company is here to be of service once you have signed up for a plan. All of this is done at no charge. The growth of the company is all referral based.


Our team of Licensed Insurance Agents is here to help you navigate the maze of medicare.

After 17 years of owning a Manufacturer’s Representative company in the office products industry, I wanted to move into an industry that was not only growing, but where I could help individuals answer questions and solve problems. Medicare can be overwhelming and confusing. I work with people and educate them to their options when joining Medicare and/or leaving a company plan.

Representing a multitude of companies allows me to find the plan that best suits their needs, being locally owned allows me to meet with them face to face if they choose to do that. If you are somewhat overwhelmed, please allow me to educate you to your options.

After staying home to raise my children, several years ago I decided to embark on a career in the insurance industry focusing on Medicare Plans. I love working with "Baby Boomers" and those folks who are retiring and are new to the Medicare system. It is very rewarding to me to help guide them through the Medicare maze and find the health care plan that is right for each individual.

Although I am available to anyone in northeast Ohio, my primary service areas are Summit, Medina, Stark and Wayne counties.

My previous background in the physical therapy field has allowed me to understand the many needs that seniors and baby boomers face when planning for their futures. The various insurance products available to protect ones health and assets can be overwhelming. I enjoy taking each persons needs and concerns into account when educating them on the various options they have for Long Term Care Insurance, Medicare Supplements, Part D or Medicare Advantage Plans. Making the complex understandable is my passion.

My experiences working in public policy and with the elderly taught me we all need advocates at some point. I obtained my insurance license and joined KAZ Company so I could use my experience where it matters – helping people access the care they need. I work with my clients to find the right Medicare plan for now and then as they age. Representing multiple insurers, keeping up with plan and policy changes, and using the latest technology is how I help clients navigate The Maze. 
I educate my clients, helping them learn options when choosing among Original Medicare, Medicare Supplements or Medicare Advantage plans. I can work with clients anywhere in Ohio, in person or virtually. Consultations are no cost and there is no obligation to purchase a plan.
