ALIGNED: What industries do your clients work in?

ALIGNED: What excites you the most about working at ALIGNED?
KIMBERLEY: At the end of the day I truly enjoy helping and educating people, making each and every insurance experience a positive one.
ALIGNED: What led you to pursue an insurance career?
KIMBERLEY: Insurance was a bit of discovery for me. Born and raised in Nova Scotia, I started out as a professional musician and performed throughout Ontario, Europe and even on cruise ships! When I decided to pursue a business career it was through college courses that I got introduced to insurance. It struck me as an interesting career choice and thoroughly enjoy it! I’ve had my RIBO license for more than 25 years and my CAIB designation for almost as long – I guess you can say I’m 100% ALIGNED to an insurance career!
