It is hard to believe that the holidays are once again upon us. As we enter into this joyous season, we give pause to stop and realize just how much we have to be thankful for. Particularly, we want you, our clients to know how much you are appreciated. We know that without you our business does not exist. We sincerely thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
It is also my belief that we have to make choices every single day. We hope that you choose to feel blessed. We hope you choose to feel grateful. We hope that you choose to be thankful. And most of all we hope that you choose to be happy.
Please accept our wishes that you and your family and friends will be showered with blessings as we end 2015, and that 2016 brings only good things your way.

Meet Patti Stewart Business Operations
"I attended Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, took some courses at Kennesaw College in GA and was featured in Who’s Who Among American High School Students in 1980 and 1981.
My career in insurance started shortly after I moved to Georgia in 1986, and I am proud to have worked for Insurance Resources for the last 15 years. When I started here, Insurance Resources only had only four employees. My primary duty was accounting, but soon it involved IT, Marketing and Human Resources. I enjoy the varied tasks as I never have a boring day.
When I am not at work, I enjoy playing with my two cats Snuggles and Zander and actively keep a personal Facebook Page for ‘Friendship Friday on Facebook’. Each Friday there is a positive encouraging post because sometimes all it takes is a friendly word to make someone’s day."
