BIO

 

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”  –Theodore Roosevelt

 

Laurie Newmes joined Erwin in 2020, bringing 35 years of insurance experience, especially in the non-profit and social services sectors.

As that quote by Theodore Roosevelt shows, Newmes’ story is a story about caring. It’s not enough for Laurie to provide insurance; she wants to help organizations help others. Previously at State Farm Insurance as an account manager, Laurie particularly enjoyed forming close and personal relationships with her clients. But as State Farm’s appetites changed, Laurie was keen to continue her work with social services and non-profits.

Now at Erwin, Laurie is free to focus on these non-profit and social service needs. She stays on top of market movements and continues to build in-depth relationships with clients. Her goal: to understand each client as they make their insurance decisions.

Laurie holds Property & Casualty as well as Life, Health, & Annuities licenses. She has also earned the Commercial Lines Coverage Specialist designation through the National Underwriter Company and has attended Hartford’s School of Insurance. All of these efforts are intended to make Laurie a better source of contact for non-profits and social services who need someone who understands their specific sectors.

Want to keep up with her on her personal time? Best get your walking shoes ready. Laurie is an annual participant in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, as well as other fundraising events. Laurie has raised a daughter, cared for parents with Alzheimer’s, and made it her mission to give back to the community. As that quote by Theodore Roosevelt illustrates, being an expert is a good thing — but it doesn’t mean much unless you care. Laurie is someone who cares.

STATE FARM

At State Farm Insurance, Laurie helped clients in social services and nonprofits, but also served industries like banking, life insurance, disability insurance, and commercial and personal lines.
