My name is Matt. I grew up in a rural farm town in Illinois. I have 2 daughters, Matty and Laney, and one son Maximus. My wife Keri and I love to spend time with our families. I played baseball growing up and in college. I got a degree in Economic Finance and Business Management at Rockford College. I came into the insurance business because this is where I felt like I could help the most people while using my economics degree.

Brian Godfrey

Unit Sales Manager

My name is Brian. I grew up in Bucks County, PA. I learned at a young age that if you want something in life, you have to work for it. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree and worked as a pharmacist. Never in a million years did I think I’d stumble into the insurance industry, but you can’t always predict where or when you’ll discover what you’re meant to do in life.

I became passionate about helping Seniors navigate retirement. It’s very rewarding to help people make wise decisions. My parents raised me to be trustworthy, reliable, efficient, attentive, and responsive. 

I’m blessed to be married to my beautiful bride, Lyn. We moved to Maryland around 2010 when the opportunity to relocate was offered by my employer. We both love living near water so the decision was easy.

In my free time, I enjoy boating, reading, playing the guitar, and walking in the park with Lyn and our best furry friend Mambo. We oversee operations at a local Community Supported Garden where we grow and deliver fresh vegetables to the community every week during the warmer months.
