I have always had a passion for helping people.15 years ago I turned that passion into a profession and became an insurance agent. For the last 10 years, I have been CEO of Mendoza Agency and loving it!  Although I was raised in the Bronx, I attended school in New York City all of my life. The most exciting part of my job is helping others protect what matters most to them. Outside of the office, I really enjoy spending quality time with my family and close friends. Ballet classes with my little girl or dinner and movies with my boys are what I consider a perfect weekend. I believe one of my talents is the ability to connect with people. Being a New Yorker, I have been lucky enough to live in a city that is the melting pot of so many wonderful people and cultures. I am passionate about helping people in need, especially children who are fighting cancer. Through Mendoza Agency Cares, I look forward to building relationships and continue to serve this wonderful city!

I have a grand enlightenment in the insurance industry; the greatest lesson I have experienced is that it takes patience, perseverance, and aspiration. I feel nothing but adoration when I know I have tried my hardest and have gone the full mile for anyone who comes my way. The spectrum goes from answering questions, handling accounts, and simply understanding someone’s frustration and circumstances. I grew up in Elmhurst, Queens but my home is in New Jersey. I love to travel, try new experiences, learn about different cultures and to enjoy them. Doing anything as a group gives me joy because those are the best kind of memories to have. I have no specific guilty pleasure, nor talent unless you call always laughing and dancing with loved ones is one. It does give the best medicine to an unhealthy situation and a great way to spend your days. There is so much to say but I hope to express it in some way with everyone who I get in contact with.

It is a very challenging and interesting field to work on, especially since it is constantly changing; but it is also satisfying to provide something that became essential to customers, this is not a luxury anymore, is a necessity, a tool to simplify their lives. I was born and raised in a beautiful island call the Dominican Republic. I went to law school, a la Universidad primada de América; UASD, Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo. I love to go to smorgasburgs, that’s my ultimate addiction. Discovering new places to eat or to explore. Ice cream is my ultimate guilty pleasure, it cures all my mishaps.

I have been licensed to sell insurance since 2015.  I was in my Sophmore year in college when I decided to help my mother with her Insurance Agency. I grew up in the Bronx, NY. I attended Brooklyn Tech Highschool which is one of the specialized high schools in NYC. In 2017, I graduated from Stonybrook University with a Biology Major. The most exciting part of my work is the ability to help families secure their assets though insurance. I really enjoy everything Sports related! I have always played different sports, i.e  baseball, basketball, football. You can find me at the local animal shelter gushing over puppies. Or volunteering to walk them. I also belong to a baseball league with a group of highschool and college friends. I can run a 4.7 40 yard dash! I volunteer at bestfriends.org

I am fairly new to the insurance industry however, I am an expert in connecting with people. I am excited to learn all the intricacies of the insurance world.  Being born and raised in the heart of New York City, I am constantly interacting with people from all over the world. I feel like it has served as training to be in this business. I am so excited to meet and establish great relationships with all my clients. I am fortunate to be bilingual so, I hope that makes our Spanish speaking clients comfortable and at ease. My favorite pastime is listening to music and writing. When I am not at work, I enjoy a glass of wine and staying at home with my boys. I am obsessed with Pinterest,  making crafts and baking.
