Cheryl Harrison CLTC, LTC specialist, helping people with long term planning since 2001.
Currently I am the Long Term Care (LTC) specialist and Insurance Advisor with Futurity First Ins. Group in Medford Oregon which gives me the platform to help people with the four cornerstones of retirement. I connect with people in person and remotely, serving clients across the country.
I believe so strongly that the one event people need to plan for but know the least about needs to be addressed. People are looking to their advisors for this guidance and too many times the subject of long term care is being overlooked.
Having the heart of a caregiver has driven my passion to help and protect people. Being an insurance agent since 1999 while also being a caregiver to a family member for many years has fueled this passion.
When working for State Farm in 2009 as the life/health/long term care specialist in Medford Oregon, the agency rated 69th out of 17,000 agencies across the nation in health sales. It was at this time I was living the impact of being a caregiver. This defined my purpose and it became clear to me that as an insurance advisor, I live a life of significance. I help people preserve the quality of life of those who need care and preserve the financial and emotional future for those they love.
Later as Retail Agent for Genworth I received Class Leader, Consistency, and Best in Class awards. At a time when the industry was reformatting and the environment was changing, I held on to my belief that I was making a difference in people’s lives and found new enthusiasm for getting the LTC message out.
The need for people to have a conversation on extended care is so great I jumped at the opportunity to speak to the advisors at the Oregon State Tax Advisor Convention in June of 2015 and on the importance of planning for a LTC event and later at the Senior Market Sales Convention on LTC in Reno 2016. Then in 2019 I visited Roseburg Oregon to speak to the NAIFA members on LTC.
Born and raised in San Diego, I spent a lot of time at the beach so when I go to the coast it is essential to get my feet in the sand. Currently enjoying living in Oregon and I am blessed to have my two adult children and most of the grandchildren living close by. My dog Zack is my daily companion. I love to run, hike, bike, swim, lift weights, golf and I enjoy a good game of ping pong.
I look forward to connecting with you.
