HER STORY

Stories of success are often born out of necessity and heartache. In 2004, Heather was a successful financial advisor when her young son became ill and faced serious complications. She immediately dove into the world of healthcare, finding the best medical care ensuring her son’s medical costs were covered. Because of this, Heather has became a health insurance expert and enjoys her new passion for helping others with their coverage. During her research, she found that insurance policies and coverages were cumbersome and hard to understand. Sort of like reading stereo instructions. To fix that problem, Heather started Stone Insurance to educate and help others in a simple and easy to understand way.

It was her goal to cut through the industry lingo, simplify confusing insurance plans, and give people the right coverage while never overselling them. Heather’s efforts to make insurance simple and fun have worked. She has been recognized by insurance professionals and the media nationwide, receiving many awards as well being consulted as an industry expert.

In her spare time, Heather loves spending time with her family of 6 and can usually be found on a beautiful Florida beach or helping one of the many local charities.
