This week meet American Retirement Advisors Senior Advisor and
123Easy Medicare Speaker
Featured on this series episode: A family-oriented midwesterner whose passion for finding solutions creates confident and long-lasting relationships with her clients.
Tammy Semler is joining us via American Retirement Advisors and 123Easy Medicare. After years of long hours in a successful retail management career for various big-box stores, Tammy decided to shift gears to balance work and family. She was recruited into the insurance industry where she quickly thrived helping people. Years later, when she joined American Retirement Advisors and became a Certified Medicare Planner®, she found great reward in expanding her focus toward helping to simplify Medicare for clients. Tammy has become rather well-known in the Phoenix-area as a Medicare 123Easy workshop presenter after mentoring under CEO David Schaeffer.
When it becomes safe to resume live meetings, Tammy will return to splitting her time between our Mesa and Scottsdale offices meeting clients’ needs. Tammy’s influence in helping people impacted her son Brady who is also a part of the team. In fact, you may have spoken to him when calling or enjoyed some of his fun and corny jokes when he greeted you in the Scottsdale office.
A dedication to making Medicare easy and creating confident relationships is why we think Tammy is someone you should get to know!
