Barbara Phillips

Florida Health Agency Executive

Barbara Phillips began her journey through life in the Catskill Mountains of New York in the late 60’s, where she held different positions, from being a waitress to Head Reservation Manager, always challenging herself to be better and accomplish more. It was here that her curiosity of people and her thirst to learn about them was ignited.

[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]Since the winters up north were long, very cold and having grown up in Western New York and having spent almost 8 more years in the Catskill Resorts she yearned for the warmer weather, so when her sister announced that she was moving to Florida with her new husband, it was like the devil possessed Barbara, and without a moment’s hesitation, she packed up her belongings and followed them to sunny Ft. Lauderdale.

Barbara spent another decade or so in the restaurant and hospitality industry in various management positions until one day, an opportunity presented itself, which was life-altering. Some would say as one door closes, another one is or in my case was opened. Barbara was offered a position to work in an insurance agency processing Medicare claims for some of the clients, and arranging Home Health Care Aide visits for other clients. The owner of the agency insisted that Barbara attend class to get her Health and Life License.

Early on in her insurance career, she was able to recognize that her inquisitiveness, empathy, and passion would best be served to work with the Baby Boomers, and she became a Medicare Marketing Representative in 1994. Barbara found it most rewarding to work with this segment of our population and they provided the platform upon which she was able to acquire her education and expand her knowledge quickly. After 22 years of acquired knowledge and research, both of which can’t be found in a book or online Barbara has been acknowledged as the “go to person” for many agents and 1000’s of Florida clients. Even to this day, she listens intently to each unique story. She loves to be challenged by their individual set of circumstances, questions, and concerns and is driven by her desire in wanting to make a difference in their lives by providing the answers and solutions in each case.

Barbara lives in Pompano Beach with her beloved spouse for the past 11 years and recently was elected to the Board of Palm Aire Condo Community #5. Barbara enjoys watching the incredible sunsets of Florida, most water sports, like boating, jet skiing, sailing, snorkeling, and fishing. She loves to travel and would love to go camping more, however, her work and 4 cats keep her close to home for the time being.[/read]
