Where do you work and what are your responsibilities?
I am the President of Pacific Standard Insurance Services where I am an Insurance Broker specializing in the design and implementation of Employee Benefits programs for employers of all sizes. I specialize in employer sponsored medical, dental, vision, short and long term disability and life insurance.
What path did you take to arrive in your current position?
I originally received my insurance license, I responded to a newspaper advertisement for GEICO sales representatives. I was hired and went through the licensing program and began selling auto insurance over the phone. It didn't take long to decide that I would rather work with my clients in person, rather than over the phone. I later accepted a position with a large firm where I received great training and experience in the employee benefits arena, and a few short years later I transitioned to Pacific Standard Insurance; where I have the privilege of working alongside my family since 2006.
If you could try another job for a day, what would it be?
If I could have another job for a day it would be a backup singer for a famous recording artist! I love music, and I LOVE to sing in harmony with other people! I also love to travel and let's face it...the VIP treatment would be fun too!
Tell us about an experience you consider part of your 15 minutes of fame?
I can't say I've really had my "15 minutes of fame"....YET! But the closest I've been was receiving an award by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors naming June 10th 2016 "Alicia Reeves Day in all of San Diego County". That was pretty rad!
What are you passionate about?
At the risk of sounding cliché, I am very passionate about the Escondido Community. I was born and raised here, I have several close family members and friends who live in Escondido and it's the community that my husband and I have decided to raise our child.
