michelle.severson@thegibraltargrp.com

I was first introduced to insurance in November 2016, where I started as a receptionist. Steadily through the years, I was promoted, and eventually earned my General Lines license in 2018. I am currently working as an insurance agent on our Client Management team. Before insurance, my career path was always geared towards helping individuals, and that passion drives me today with helping my clients save money and protect the items close to their heart.
