Gina was in the wine business for many years in Florida. You might guess their favorite travel destinations is to wine-growing regions, especially France. On weekends their other favorite pass time is golf. Dale has a son Lee in Omaha, NE and when they are together it is usually for Nebraska Cornhusker football and golf.

This has been his passion ever since, specializing in the healthcare niche. He thoroughly enjoys the long-term relationships he has developed with insurance carriers and retailers. Having worked for carriers, retail and brokerage gives Dale a great perspective of managing all relationships. Helping agents solve problems for their clients, being an extension of their agency when needed and providing responsive service feeds his enjoyment of his long-time brokerage career.
