We are delighted to announce that our employee spotlight this month is focused on Amanda Twomey. Amanda first got involved with Phil Richard Insurance after a six-month work hiatus in which she was a stay-at-home mom. She quickly realized that, although she loves being a mom, she missed work tremendously! She posted her resume to MAIA’s job bank in hopes of finding something that would allow her to work from home, with flexible hours, and was contacted soon after by Jacqui and Phil Richard. Like they say, from there the rest is history. She immediately became a member of our team and family.
Although Amanda works remotely most of the time, she enjoys the family feeling of our tight-knit agency, which isn’t always the case when a company is run by a family. She loves that Phil, Patti, and Jacqui took the leap and allow her to work autonomously from home in order to balance home and still have a rewarding career.
Amanda is a remarkably dedicated employee who sometimes finds it challenging to separate herself from her computer. This is especially true when she is helping first time home buyers or a young person purchasing their first vehicle. She goes the extra mile to make those clients feel secure in what they are doing and understand the insurance process completely.
Some of Amanda’s proudest moments have been when a client leaves a review on Facebook, Google, or Yelp that shows how much they appreciate her commitment and attentiveness. A client recently had this to say about her dedication.
“I wanted to share how much I have enjoyed working with Amanda Twomey. She is truly a gem!! She is thorough, understanding, very responsive, and has set me up for success for various DMV/Insurance situations I have had to deal with.”
A self-described “homebody,” Amanda does like to get out with her family, spend time with friends, and garden in her yard. One of her favorite vacations was sitting on the warm, sandy beaches of Turks and Caicos with a cold cocktail in her hand. We are so happy that Amanda is a part of our Phil Richard Insurance family.
