Today we’re sharing the career story of Theresa Kunkeli of Cleveland West, Ohio, who thanks her mentors for her quick ascent to her current Branch Sales Manager role.

“I started at Bankers Life in 2007. Working for this company has given me the freedom to grow professionally and it has provided my family with the financial freedom to do the things that we want to do.

When I was looking to make a career change in 2007, I wanted a position that was impactful, challenging and financially rewarding. I found all these qualities in my position at Bankers Life. I started as an agent and was fortunate to have some amazing mentors. In just six years, I worked my way up to a Branch Sales Manager role.

This business is about investing in people. I was lucky enough to have great managers invest in me and now, as a Branch Sales Manager, I am making that same investment in my managers and agents every day.
