Jen joined the Carolina Senior Marketing team in 2021. She was born and raised in Durham, NC and now she lives in Raleigh. Jen loves the way the Triangle has changed in her lifetime!

Always over. I might even change it at someone else’s house because I’m sure they either forgot to switch it or wish they had.

Always tacos. I can barely do sushi, even if it’s a California roll. Who really likes seaweed besides fish?

Absolutely to Italy. The pandemic cancelled our 20th anniversary trip, so if we could ever do it again, I’d love for someone else to pay.

Interior designer. I practiced on my Barbie dream house, complete with gourmet freestanding kitchen and elevator.

Start cooking dinner for my crew. Someone, all these people in my house expect to eat three meals a day!

Don’t Take Our Word For It

Words From Our Agents

I would just have to tell you, if you’re an independent agent, it’s a huge benefit to have Carolina Senior Marketing as your backup team. They help us so much with marketing, advertising, and social media. They are a wonderful group of people and the best part about it is they’re just a lot of fun and they’re genuine.

Jeff ShellThe Health Insurance Shoppe

Although I’ve been a health Insurance Agent for 16 years, my business has been in another state. I didn’t have any clients here when I moved to North Carolina. Carolina Senior Marketing has been so helpful to me. They treat their agents extremely well and have offered me all kinds of marketing assistance and the latest technology to help me stay compliant and grow my business in this area.

Renee LempertNorth Carolina Medicare Insurance

They always go above and beyond the call of duty whether it’s helping us solve a problem with a policy, or a carrier, or just in general helping us with marketing techniques throughout the year. I could not imagine doing this without them.
