Here at Boyd Insurance & Investments, we are so thankful for our amazing team, all of the new additions, growth and success we’ve had over the year. And this holiday season, we asked some of our team members to share what they are thankful for, big or small, whether it is a job, milestone, family, or good health — there is so much to consider. Here’s what they said…

Bethany Smith, Personal Account Manager

“I am truly grateful for this little family of mine. I enjoy listening to their endless questions (children who are constantly learning). I am thankful for my health, even though this body of mine may not be perfect, I still feel great and blessed to be alive. I am so very thankful for that. Last but not least, I’m so thankful for my faith and the strength it gives me to face my challenges each day and the way my beliefs shape how I see the world and raise my family. I’m so thankful for my relationship with my Savior, family and my health.”

Coreen Klein, Financial Services Assistant

“What I am most thankful for this Fall season is my new job as Nick Zec’s Financial Services Assistant at Boyd Insurances and Investments. During my first two months on the job I have been entrusted with servicing client accounts, which allows me to use my strengths and talents. I have appreciated the chance to take on new challenges and really grow into my role. I have learned so much under Nick Zec’s supervision and enjoy coming to work each day. I’m glad to be given this opportunity to express how grateful I am to be working with Nick and my colleagues in this office. Thank you for hiring me to be part of such a dynamic organization.”

Pam Gillette, Personal Account Manager

“I have a lot to be thankful for; I am healthy, happy and have a family that loves me, especially my two new additions Rylynn and Avayah, both born in September 2021.”
