Aspire Insurance Group Inc. Blog
Hi, I’m Beth.
I live in western WI with my Husband, Adam, and our two children, Chloe and Evan. We have two dogs, who we consider part of the family, Brea and Ben. As a family, we enjoy boating, camping, traveling, health and wellness, and personal development. On the weekends in the summer you will find us boating on the Saint Croix. In the winter, you will find us on the side of a wrestling mat cheering on Evan or attending a music recital for Chloe! One of my passions is animal rescue, we have been involved in pit bull and Rottweiler rescue since 2004.
I started out in the insurance industry in 2001 and wrote for a captive agent for 10 years. In 2010, I decided that it was about time I spread my wings and start building my own business so I became an Independent Insurance Agent at an agency in the MN metro area. I decided to be an Independent Insurance Agent for so many reasons, one important reason is I wanted to be in an advocate role rather than a sales role and because we have so many companies to offer – I can better serve and advocate as an Independent. In 2014 I made a bold move and decided to take the book of business I built and start Aspire Insurance Group. The agency pulled together fast, and here we are almost 3 years later (our birthday is July 1st).
The last 7 years has been exciting and humbling! Sometimes I look back at the journey and shake my head in disbelief, I never imagined I would be blessed to own an agency. I am honored to be in the position I am in today, to work with the clients I do, and to have the team I do. I can’t wait to experience all we have in our future!
We are SO lucky to have Sarah as part of the Aspire Insurance Group Team! Sarah's specific role is working with our Responsible Owner Program as our attorney. Not only is Sarah super smart, her heart is made of gold. Sarah works tirelessly and diligently to make the program the success it is today!
Sarah Kenville, JD, MBA, MA is a licensed attorney in Minnesota and Massachusetts and a graduate mental health practitioner who joined Aspire in 2016. She has been a volunteer at animal shelters and with dog rescues for a combined 12+ years at the City of Boston Animal Shelter, a local city shelter, a local pit bull rescue, and a local all-breed rescue. She is currently on the Board of A Rotta Love Plus, a Twin Cities-based pit bull and Rottweiler rescue. She is passionate about all breeds of dogs (and animals in general), and has an especially soft spot in her heart for pit bulls after adopting her first pit bull, Rose (RIP), in 2005.
Sarah and her husband, Marc, live in Minneapolis with their pit bull, Peanut, and their chihuahua, Minnie Mouse. They have an in-home dog-sitting business and foster for a local pit bull rescue. Sarah is active in the community, volunteering for Minneapolis Animal Care and Control (MACC), A Rotta Love Plus, Tubman, Walk-In Counseling Center, the Ramsey County Volunteer Mediation Program, and the Children’s Law Center of Minnesota. When not spending time with her clients or her dogs, Sarah enjoys traveling, reading, watching movies, spending time with friends and family, and trying new restaurants
We know you will enjoy working with her as much as we do!
The Aspire Insurance Group Team
I became a licensed property and casualty insurance agent in June 2010. I started my career working for AAA agency for 3 years until I had my son in 2013 when I decided to stay home with my son and work from home doing insurance.
I have been working as an insurance CSR from home since 2013 and loving it. With a passion for helping others, I have always worked in the customer service field. I enjoy spending time with my husband, 4 year old son and coming soon our daughter expected in July. We love to go to Church, camping, hiking, boating and watching/playing sports.
I’ve been working at Aspire since April as a licensed agency representative and absolutely love it, Beth and Adam are wonderful to work for. The clients have been amazing and welcoming and I thoroughly enjoy my job every day. Already being an animal lover, Aspire Insurance has inspired me to be an even bigger animal advocate and even better insurance agent.
I am very thankful to be working for Aspire Insurance Group!
I look forward to working with you,
Welcome to Aspire Insurance Groups blog!
We have been thinking of blogging for about a year now and finally decided to take the plunge. Our goal with this blog is to be more interactive with you and for you to be able to get to know us better as well. Anytime we look to do business with someone, their 'why' is important. We hope that this blog will allow you to see the heart behind Aspire Insurance Group, or in other words our 'why' as well as to learn a few handy tips and tricks about insurance along the way.
Over the next couple weeks we will be sharing a little about us individually! We will share our background with you as well as a few things we love to do when not working. In an online world that feels so detached sometimes, we strive to be relate-able.
Thanks for joining us on this blogging journey!
Your Aspire Insurance Group team,
Beth, Adam, Chandra, Sarah and Suzie
