Jessica Kreuzberger is an Insurance Agent licensed with the state of California, and based locally here in the Santa Clarita Valley. She enjoys helping clients with personalized quotes that sufficiently cover the assets they are looking to protect. Understanding why the insurance industry is so important was something that she learned from a very young age, as her father and many of her family members also work in the industry. She feels that it is her duty and privilege as an Agent to make sure that her clients have a full understanding of their policies and the coverages they entail.

What Participants Have Said:

The information was extremely relevant to the issues I and my family, friends are experiencing.

The most helpful concept presented is that I only am in control of myself. I also appreciated that it was emphasized to not hurt myself, not hurt others, and not break property.

Zonta thank you for these workshops & having them open to the communities.
