I grew up in Buffalo, NY! I love to learn and be in an environment with others who will challenge the status quo. The organization culture is most exciting and I contribute by listening and supporting growth. I have experience as it relates to mergers & acquisitions. I also have an understanding of the financial and accounting needs of the insurance industry.

If I’m not working, I’m usually taking the family to brunch or BBQ on the weekends! I also love to cook and run. In addition to that; I am passionate about helping those communities where resources are needed. I enjoy doing community service work in underserved communities.

I am a Las Vegas native who loves the warmth nine months out of the year! I’m dedicated and passionate about providing each and every one of my customers with the highest level of service and protection, and I strive to exceed their expectations.

Aside from work, I enjoy genuine connections, fun experiences, and making great memories with my family and friends. In my free time, I love crafting and planning fun events. Most weekends are spent hanging out with my husband, kids, and extended family!

I grew up in Las Vegas, NV. I am grateful to be providing service to my own community because; I enjoy helping others. When an opportunity for help presents itself, I’m always willing to help and assist someone else in achieving their goal. My experience comes from the clerical side of things. I’ve worked in an administrative role for the past 11 years.

Outside of work, any spare time spent with family is always the best! I love to shop, particularly for shoes. Retail therapy is just that, therapy! If the weather is nice, you can find me at an outdoor mall, and if not, I’m home watching movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

When possible, I like to support non-profit organizations by participating in 1-3 mile walks.

Monroe, Louisiana, is the city I call home; commonly known by few, but beloved by most locals! Spending my youthful years in Monroe taught me to appreciate close-knit communities and value relationships.

I like to believe I didn’t choose insurance; it chose me. On career day in 2nd grade, I didn’t come dressed as an insurance agent, but as life ran its course, I found myself drawn to law and policy, specific to insurance. Evolution is inevitable, and the world of insurance is a perfect example of this, which is why I love this industry.

Amongst many other things, I am very passionate about self-care. After a grueling week of parenting and working, getting a facial or spa day is right where I want to be. Most- actually, no one- knows about my amazing singing abilities… because they don’t exist! I definitely wasn’t born to be a professional singer, but trips in the car or shower time wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t vocalize some tunes!

Staying in and relaxing is so overrated. If the sun is shining and the weekend is upon me, that means scenic drives, frozen yogurt runs, and playground fun is on the horizon.

I grew up in Delaware and went to college at the University of Delaware and then Princeton University for graduate school. I really miss East Coast bagels… but I do not miss those East Coast winters.

I started in insurance as a summer intern at Princeton Insurance Company. I worked my way up to Senior Underwriter before a Job transfer brought me west to the wholesale side of the business. What excites me most about my work is that I love being able to connect with small business owners and helping them protect their investments and grow. It makes my day when I can help someone solve a problem.

Music has always been a passion. I earned money in college taking photos of live bands. Here in Las Vegas, there are so many opportunities to see great performers! In fact, exploring the unique places of Las Vegas and Nevada has become our new weekend pastime. There are some amazing places just down the road!

In my free time, I am also a photographer. These days, my photos are mostly of my dog and family, but not so long ago, my husband was a professional wedding photographer. We would sometimes shoot three weddings a weekend!

One passion project of mine is helping out at Henderson Animal Shelter. Before we moved to Nevada, we volunteered with the Autism Society of Orange County and the Autism Kids Foundation.

I grew up all over the world! I was born in Reno, NV, and lived in Japan, Northern California, Germany, and Las Vegas, NV. I started my commercial insurance career in 1991. I started as a receptionist for a national agency in San Diego, CA, and continued to learn and grow throughout my career. I enjoy learning about the different types of businesses and coverages for my clients!

In my spare time; you can find me enjoying a meal out at a nice restaurant or visiting my parents. Aside from that, I love to bargain shop and play with my fur baby, Classy!






Rachael Rizzi, MBA, CRM, CSRM, CISR

V.P. of Risk Management

I am a true Las Vegas native. I have a BA in Criminal Justice and a BA in Psychology from UNLV. I also have an MBA with an emphasis in Servant Leadership from Grand Canyon University. While enrolled in the MBA program, I got to study under Ken Blanchard directly – I’ve even been to his house several times!

I am second generation. I have literally done every job there is to do. I started as a certificate tech, then became an assistant, and progressed to an Account Executive, and from there, I was a producer. I even owned my own agency for several years before selling to BBC. I have been very involved in a lot of trade associations and have written quite a few nationally published articles. I also sit on the NV DOI Agent Advisory Council. I am a natural-born problem solver. I love finding solutions to challenges and creating win-win scenarios. I also am a bit of an early adopter so I am always looking for new products, approaches, and technology to test out.

I hate being cold and am convinced that I am secretly a lizard on the inside. You can find me most weekends romping through the desert or cooling off in a swimming pool with my family and friends. I am sort of a human jukebox – I know a ridiculous amount of lyrics to songs in just about every genre. I am also great at pop culture trivia and love to scrapbook all of my adventures. From hiking to exploring ghost towns to pedal biking on a railroad. My absolute favorite thing in the world to do, though, is go to Vegas Golden Knights games. Go Knights GO!

I have volunteered and served on many boards throughout the years, but my favorite cause to support is women’s empowerment. We still have a very long way to go in terms of gender equality and equity. For that reason, the Women’s Research Institute of Nevada will always hold a special place in my heart.

I grew up in Southern California and graduated with my Associate of Arts Degree in 1992. I have worked in the insurance industry since 1997. I was the President of the Clark County Association of Health Underwriters in 2018 – 2019. I am currently the Secretary of the Nevada State Association of Health Underwriters.

I love educating clients. Helping them understand the importance of insurance and making a true difference in the lives of our clients and their families is rewarding. In my own time, you can find me reading, volunteering, and doing what I can to help shape children’s future for success. I love to spend quiet time at home reading or just taking a drive with my husband.

I currently sit on the Las Vegas Chapter Board of Les Gemmes, Inc., an organization dedicated to assisting young ladies aged 11 – 20 in preparing for higher education and future success!

I grew up in Chicago, Illinois. I am a proud graduate of Spelman College, an HBCU.

I also enjoy creating memories with my family and friends, scrapbooking, and exploring Las Vegas!

I was born and raised right here in Las Vegas. I’m here to help with all lines of insurance coverage. I started out in Life and Health, moved to Commercial, then Personal Lines, and now I’m back in Life and Health! I have been in Personal Lines for almost 6 years now, and I absolutely love it!

What excites me most about my work is being able to help families make sure they are insured correctly, so in case of a loss, we know they are fully covered! I also enjoy getting to know our clients.

I really enjoy spending time with my family. We love going out and having fun adventures on the weekends. However, when we get the chance, we enjoy binge-watching some Netflix! I grew up playing soccer and still enjoy it to this day. I would like to get back into playing again and even coaching!

I grew up in Gainesville (Go Gators!) and Tampa, Florida for the first 18 years of my life.  Went to Emory and lived in Atlanta for about 10 years and have lived in the Kansas City area for 25 years. I started at UNUM as a sales rep and worked for a half dozen leading group benefits companies like Standard, Delta Dental, and CIGNA.  I spent the last 14 years at Leslie Saunders serving airport-based businesses. I love working with small and medium-sized businesses where they don’t have all the benefits, compliance, and administrative resources of large organizations because we can impact the lives of the employees and the business owner’s bottom line.

Personally, I am interested in almost everything but not really a specialist in anything.  I mostly love to learn about the people I meet. I am a very good home cook – totally improv with whatever we have on hand. When not working, I am probably hanging out with my family.

I grew up between Mexico (Chihuahua) and the United States (Las Vegas). At the age of 3, I left the US to be cared for by my maternal grandmother, and at the age of 14, I came back to finish my secondary and high school. I go back home every year when possible. I started my career in the Insurance industry in 1992 as a file clerk and moved up quickly to Sales and Underwriting. I love to help find all those extra savings and discounts, but I am mostly concerned about how insurance is needed and having the proper coverage.

Personally, I really enjoy the outdoors, and every so often, I drive out to CA to enjoy the beach. My guilty pleasure is in my kitchen. I love to cook and try new recipes to enjoy. I’m definitely not a picky eater. I spend my weekends in my garden, riding my bike, or possibly on my paddleboard, depending on the weather.  I’m very active and can’t stay still.

I grew up in Las Vegas and graduated from Las Vegas High School. I have been in the insurance industry since I was about 15. I started with filing and answering the phone, and I am now a licensed agent. I love being able to help my customers not just by saving money but also by helping them understand their coverages and what they need. The best compliment is always a referral.

I enjoy spending time with my kids. It’s literally all I talk about – they are my pride and joy. When I am not at work, you can find me trying a new restaurant with my husband and kids. We are total foodies. We love to be out trying new things and new foods.
