I started OAA to give local agents more opportunities to grow their business. What I’ve realized along the way, is the more we help others achieve their dreams, we realize more of our dreams too. This company exists to fulfill, inspire and dream.
I have the honor and privilege to work directly with each department at OAA that interfaces with our members; Accounting and Compliance, Agency Development, Access Plus, and Sales. I find it very inspiring to work with such passionate and dedicated team members and see the impact they make on our members lives.
I have the privilege to help each department at OAA reach maximum success. OAA's culture and determination to help independent insurance agents understand the industry and grow their business is unparalleled. I am proud to be part of it.
I oversee finances at OAA. I keep an eye on all incoming and outgoing cash, calculate incentives, and help members stay compliant and up to date on monthly reporting. I enjoy seeing our members make more money and change their future.
I am passionate about making people feel welcome, valued and informed. I am always working to make sure OAA is engaging and innovative. Whether online, in print, or at our events, I want our vision, goals, and value to be consistent.
I have the privilege of working solely with Tony on a daily basis from keeping him sane, organized and prepared for his day, to managing his calendar and getting him where he needs to be. To be successful in this role, you must have patience and the ability to adapt quickly to changes in priorities and scheduling.
I am the first face you see at the OAA office. I enjoy greeting our visitors and team members as they walk in the door. I phone our members each month to see if they have any questions, comments or needs. My main focus is representing OAA and its amazing members.
I love spreadsheets and numbers. I take care in preparing monthly payments to members in a timely manner. I want our members to make the most money and take the least risk, so I work with them to stay in compliance.
I get the opportunity to help our members build their agency. It is my goal to help them be successful with our partner carriers, as well as successful in their agency. I am a liaison between our partner carriers and our members, helping in any way I can.
I get to work with our members every day. When an agent joins OAA they have access to so many companies, but that means lots of learning. I work as a mentor to train them so they can grow successfully and write profitable business.
I help our ISM’s by making sure they understand how to accurately complete an application with the information necessary to get a quote. I enjoy talking to them and helping them learn efficient ways to increase their business.
I work with new agencies that onboard to work under OAA. I firm up the quotes they send in and bind coverage and process all paper work. My bilingual ability has played a big role over the years, being fluent in Spanish has made me a great help to members.
I take on our service correspondence, offering administrative assistance to all of our members, as well as the Access Plus, Accounting and Agency Development depts. It is my initial responsibility to assist our members with precision and consistency, and I work to maintain those standards.
I oversee contracts and amendments for our new members as well as assist with the onboarding process. I am honored to help our members receive direct codes with our Strategic Partner Carriers (SPC) and ensure they are paid properly for the business they write, which increases their overall agency income. I also assist members with APFCO, OAA's Premium Finance Co.
I create engaging content and design for OAA and its agencies. I am passionate about helping others conceptualize their entrepreneurial vision; it is my job to harness that vision, bringing it to life in the most impactful way. I lead Insite, OAA's Digital Brand Consulting Program for members.
I am the first face of OAA in the field. I find and help agents with an entrepreneurial spirit cross the bridge of fear to the independent agency side of the insurance industry. I help them through the entire process to realize their dreams.
I work with prospective and current members to discover their dreams and goals and identify how OAA can help. I introduce them to the support of OAA and show them how they can gain access to the best companies, achieve compensation on a level they couldn’t reach before, and navigate into the future.
I have the best job at OAA ̶ showing our future Members how to build their legacy. I have the honor of introducing OAA to agents that may not know there is a company ready and willing to walk beside them as they grow.

“We signed up with OAA originally for carrier access. There was no way we could get good carrier contracts as a startup independent agency. I do feel good about the way OAA/SIAA negotiates with various carriers to help our agency make the most money possible. We looked at several other options before going with OAA and you were the best option.”

“We obviously enjoy the bonuses we receive by being an OAA/SIAA member. However, we also place a high value on the fact OAA “has our back.” In other words, we believe companies deal with us more carefully as an OAA member than they would if we weren’t affiliated with OAA. “
Von Nix, Statewide Insurance Agency
