Since 2009 my focus has been providing individuals with the information necessary to avoid costly errors when selecting health insurance in the non-employer group category. I also provide a full breadth of options from major carriers with Medicare contracts. I'm committed to helping clients avoid the medical & financial consequences resulting from an illness, accident or injury. 

My office is behind the wheel of my care, which takes me throughout Georgia. I encourage in person meetings to avoid confusion or misleading information gotten over the phone from agents outside our state. 

For many individuals and families, access to affordable health coverage has narrowed since the passage of the Affordable Care Act. In face-to-face consultation I advise clients 65 and over and those under 65, on an array of unique options that can protect against medical and financial risk.

Next After Hours, 10/16
Olive Bistro - Vinings
3230 Cobb Pkwy
(Kroger Shopping Center, at Paces Mill Rd) 
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
No Cost, No Registration Necessary

Olive Bistro serves fresh, authentic Mediterranean food from his family recipes. Olive Bistro is inviting, cozy, low-key, and offers a wide assortment of Mediterranean food. There are also some standbys for those that just want a healthy wrap sandwich.

Olive gives a twist to lasagna, using his homemade tomato basil sauce rather than the predictable marinara. A fave of the regulars, the gyro and our hummus, so take a look at the menu and know you are getting fresh, delicious food at the best price We offer, using his premium ingredients. You may find a cheaper sandwich but we will not sacrifice quality, We only use premium greens. No iceberg in the kitchen!
