Paul joined Finn's Insurance in September 2018 as Director of Healthcare Benefits with 18 years of experience as an Insurance Professional. Licensed in both Accident/Health and Life insurance, Paul has always taken a “service first” approach.
Paul was born and raised in Birmingham, MI and attended Eastern Michigan University for undergraduate degree and MSU for his food science certification. After college he pursued his dream of becoming a PGA golf professional and spent approx. 10 years working in the business. He was recruited by Aflac in 2001 and worked alongside brokers and accounts to strengthen their benefit offerings. Along the way Paul has developed many key relationships in the Ann Arbor area and throughout southeast Michigan. He resides in Manchester with his wife Darci and their two children.

When he's not coaching or working Paul loves to take the family up north skiing or fishing where they can all enjoy the beauty of Pure Michigan!

Personal Lines CSR
I have been a receptionist at Finns Insurance since January of 2018. As a receptionist, I feel a responsibility to ensure that our customers receive the best service possible. I am the first person they encounter when they call or come into our office, so I strive to be welcoming and professional. When not answering phones, I help with downloads and document processing. I feel very fortunate to work at a company like Finns where it truly is a team!
Prior to this year, I was a stay at home mom, raising my now grown daughters. I have a Bachelor degree from the University of Michigan and I was in Bank Management for 8 years before my children were born. When I’m not at work, I enjoy golfing, reading, exercising, and travelling.

I was a stay at home wife/mom for many years & decided to work part time now that my 2 children are teenagers. I began working at Finns in February 2018, but I have known the family since I was a child. My mother worked here for over 30 years & my sister currently works at Finns, and has been here for over 30 years. What I like most about Finns is that they are very family oriented, and you can tell family is important to them. I also like the working environment & how well everyone gets along.
