Erica Gaynor

Advisor / Account Executive

Educating my clients as well as their employees is the best part of my role as an advisor. Insurance, along with Healthcare Reform, is difficult for anyone to navigate alone. If I can make this process easy to understand, my day has been a success.

She is a member of The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), is a Certified Healthcare Reform Specialist (CHRS) and is currently working towards a Registered Employee Benefits Consultant (REBC) designation. Erica was honored as a 2017 Trusted Adviser by the Springfield Business Journal and chosen as one of Springfield Business Journal’s 2020 40 Under 40 honorees.

Erica serves on the Board of Directors for the Victim Center and Hamels Foundation and is also a member of Junior League of Springfield.
