Svetlana Martie / Owner, Employee Benefits Consultant
My story began taking shape when I moved to US from Russia in 1991 as a teen girl, due to my mother's strive for a better life. Watching my mother struggle to give me the best possible chance, I decided that I would do everything I could to make her proud.
I joined the workforce when I was just 17 and began gaining experience in the field of employee benefits. I climbed quickly due in part to my strong work ethic and a lot of help from a few good folks. From receptionist, to account manager, to sales executive and eventually to opening up my own agency. 20 years later I am still going strong and feel just as happy to get up every morning and go to work. I hope that it shows in every program I implement.
I am extremely passionate about insurance and helping others navigate through the sometimes complex web of plans, networks and compliance. I'd like to think of myself as an advocate above all else and when I hear that word from others it is an enormous compliment. I work diligently and tirelessly to ensure my clients happiness and satisfaction.
I have attained my CBC and PPACA certifications and like to do speaking engagements to further educate the public and my peers on the complex and ever changing world of health insurance.
In my spare time I enjoy the great Colorado outdoors with my wonderful husband and 8 year old son. We love hiking, fishing, skiing and golf. My other passion is poker.

Maudra Pacheco-Dickerson / Employee Benefits Account Manager
I come from an IRS debt collection company background and have spent many years helping customers consolidate and reconcile their financial obligations. That experience has taught me how to walk in someone else's shoes and to treat each problem I encounter as if it were my own. I really enjoy the diversity of the insurance world and am happy to utilize my strong customer service skills and financial experience when assisting our current customers.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 children.
