Not many kids dream of becoming an insurance agent someday, but after studying archaeology, receiving his Master’s degree from Yale University, and serving in the USMC, Dwight found that insurance was a great fit for his interest in helping people with an important business need. Dwight became an insurance broker in 2003 and was named Chief Operating Officer for Orr & Associates Insurance Services in 2006. In 2007, Dwight earned the Certified Insurance Counselor Designation by taking a series of five insurance courses and passing the required written exams. In 2008, Dwight enrolled in Concord Law School to better understand the contracts and civil litigation surrounding businesses today. In 2012, Dwight graduated from law school with honors, passed the California bar exam, and was admitted to practice law in the State of California. Dwight resigned from the insurance agency at the end of 2013 so that he could focus full-time on the practice of law. Dwight now provides consulting, legal representation, and expert witness work for the issues that insurance agencies and clients face.
Vanessa has been an integral part of the insurance business since 2003. For 10 years she was an elementary school teacher, but found that she enjoyed working with business owners better than grading papers. In 2006 she made the switch to being a full-time insurance professional. She especially enjoys the relationships she has with her clients, many of whom have become friends over the years. She and Dwight love working together in the same business and being able to have lunch together every day. In 2007, Vanessa became a Certified Insurance Counselor by taking a series of five insurance courses and passing the required written exams.
