Sharon Groves is joining us via American Retirement Advisors and 123Easy Medicare. Sharon has been helping retiring individuals with understanding and guiding Medicare decisions for nearly a decade. After attending a 123Easy Medicare workshop as a benefits professional to help friends and family with Medicare, she was hooked on finding out how she could help more people! Sharon has now become rather well-known in the Phoenix-area as a Medicare 123Easy workshop presenter after mentoring under CEO David Schaeffer and becoming a Certified Medicare Planner®. She listens to clients’ needs and provides calming solutions to Medicare inquiries and a welcome relief to people confused with Medicare.
Sharon is also a regular contributor to our monthly newsletter (which is now available to enjoy in multi-media formats print, video, and audio) with helpful articles on health. She has an especially soft-spoken and patient personality working with individuals who want to understand Medicare and navigate confident decisions. You will be surprised by her diverse business background and many interests and hobbies outside of her office meetings with Medicare eligibles.
From her past work interfacing with the Pentagon to riding motorcycles – We think Sharon is someone you should get to know!
