"Moving from a large company to a smaller company to handle our benefits was the best thing we could have done. The “hands-on” attention our employees receive at the drop of a hat shows the true dedication they have to our account. Our enrollment process (80 employees), was made so simple with the online portal they provided, being in transportation we needed something easy. Mary and her staff are true, honest professionals that take the time to make sure our employees understand each plan and assist with the best options for their family. Once you talk to Mary, you won’t give anyone else a second thought."

Alyssa will be the go-to contact for both you and your employees. She works very hard to ensure the benefits offered are being managed efficiently and accurately. She is your Client Relationship Manager.

Alyssa takes pride in being able to give your employees the tools they need to be able to understand and navigate their benefits and is available for any and all concerns. Questions like “What is my cost for going to the doctor?”, “How much does my insurance cost me?” and “Why was I charged this by my provider?” and so many others are just a few reasons why your employees might reach out to her. On the other hand, getting new employees enrolled, terminating coverage for those who are no longer employed and maintaining COBRA administration are all areas she is ready to assist in making your benefit administration that much easier on you.

Outside of the office, you will find Alyssa wrangling her two little boys: Crew (3) and Graham (1.5). She thoroughly enjoys spending time with her husband and friends, often going to concerts and events. She is also the Secretary on the Board for Peninsula Federal Credit Union and the President of the Women’s League at the Escanaba Country Club. Community involvement and being kind are things she is always keeping at the top of her priority list!
