Advisor: Fiona Stone, Stone Insurance Fiona has been living in Canada since 2009 and is a great example of an advisor who recently joined our industry and has quickly learned to thrive. She became accident and sickness licensed in 2013 and began going door-to-door in Northern Ontario building her accident and sickness business. After meeting our Business Development Specialist Alex Cassell last fall, Fiona decided to get her full life insurance license and transfer her business over to QFS. Over the past month, Fiona has been able to settle a total of just under $10,000 of annual premium for life, and DI, with a single client. This was after being called by the prospect for travel and health insurance quotes. Fiona is an amazing addition to the QFS team, and we're certain her business will grow exponentially as time goes on. Staff: Tanya Broadfoot, New Business Coordinator Tanya has been a member of the QFS team for 3 years and has completely embraced her role as a New Business Coordinator! Advisors she works with are constantly praising her cheerful attitude and outgoing demeanor. We couldn't be happier to have Tanya as a member of our team!
