In May 2017, Jenny McKenzie decided to initiate a major career change and open Brightway, The McKenzie Agency.
“When I was first starting, I knew I wanted to help others, and I thought what better way to do that than by helping people protect their home, valuables and livelihood,” said McKenzie.
As part of the nationwide Brightway Insurance franchise, the McKenzie Agency provides locals with top-notch coverage across a variety of insurance plans.
“Brightway is the seventh largest independent agency in the country,” said McKenzie, “which gives us access to hundreds of insurance carriers. But we also receive an immense amount of support from other agency owners and our corporate headquarters, which really makes the difference. We’re like one huge family.”
People can be intimidated at the thought of purchasing new insurance coverage, but McKenzie wants to make customers and employees as comfortable as possible throughout the process: “I have the opportunity to create a positive, healthy work environment, which customers can feel. We spend a majority of our day working. I think it’s important to be happy and embrace all aspects of your day, whether you’re at the office or home.”
