Dedicate your time. Donate when possible. Give 110 percent to your customers and your community at all times. Oh, and be a dedicated parent of three while running a successful business while you’re at it.

That’s what my incredible client Nancy Leavitt does every day. In an October 2017 issue of her hometown newspaper, The Lynden Tribune, she was celebrated as a Standout Citizen. And she so deserves it. As a woman, she is a minority in the insurance business. But that isn’t on her radar. She chose this business because of her drive and aptitude to protect and advise her clients over the past 13 years.

While supporting her clients through the unpredictable blips of life, she widens her gaze and supports local charities through her American Family Insurance office. Her annual Quotes for Community Campaign and her fall celebration of National Insurance Month allow her to raise funds for local charities like Animals and Natural Therapy through her work. Those funds are often matched by American Family Insurance national office as well.

The policies she’s issued and the claims she’s helped process over the years have improved the lives of thousands of citizens in our area. Nancy also donates her precious time to do amazing work, in the past as the board secretary, and more recently as charity committee chair for Whatcom Women in Business. She

Her ability to reach further, be there for her community and family, and do good for others is truly inspiring to us all.
