Alana's Story

I take our family legacy seriously. I’m here to make sure 1706 Advisors carries on our family business while staying nimble and adaptable, so we can serve our clients for decades to come.

I’m accustomed to thinking outside the box, challenging the status quo, and developing new solutions to old problems. At 1706 Advisors, I take a fresh look to assess the way we operate and ensure we stay modern and in touch with our clients’ needs. I’m proud of the business our family has built, and I’m always looking for new ways to deliver the best-fit employee benefits, strategic human resources consulting, and individual insurance programs to our clients and their families.

My focus is the client experience. I’m a people person through and through. Our clients tell me that my energy is contagious and my passion is evident immediately. Insurance is a relationship-driven business, and my goal is to make sure clients know we’re here to advocate for and empower them.

Adaptability is key! Insurance is about adapting to change: change within the industry and change in our clients’ lives. We stay current on product, customer, and industry trends to ensure we’re meeting the evolving needs and goals of our clients.
