Since 2006, Rebecca has worked with her clients to put in place strategies and concepts that allow them to move closer to the life they want for themselves and their families.
“Growing up in the country on 18 acres in Central Kansas and having a father that owned and ran a small business provided unique experiences that helped shape who I have become,” said Ms. Gorrell. “It helped instill hard work and commitment, and a ‘do anything’ attitude that I am very thankful for.”Growing up in the country on 18 acres in Central Kansas and having a father that owned and ran a small business provided unique experiences that helped shape who I have become. It helped instill hard work and commitment, and a 'do anything' attitude that I am very thankful for.
Because Rebecca is familiar with what it takes to start, run and make a living from a small business, a high percentage of her client base is comprised of small business owners. Helping them through the life-cycle of business is critical for their success towards retirement.
Since 2010, Rebecca has qualified as a member of The Million Dollar Round Table® (www.MDRT.org), regarded as the standard of sales excellence for life insurance and financial advisors. She has served on the board of directors for NAIFA, National Association Insurance & Financial Advisors since 2007, making her way through the chairs, serving in all three executive positions, most recently as President in 2013. She currently holds the National Committee Person seat for the Johnson County-Wyandotte County chapter (www.NAIFA.org). In 2012, she was asked by New York Life to join a group of 125 peers selected to be the Political Involvement Leader for their respective firms. Serving as the Kansas City PIL, she met with both the Missouri and Kansas senatorial and congressional representatives, locally and in D.C., advocating on behalf of her clients regarding issues and concerns that will impact their financial future. In 2013, she was asked by the AARP to become one of 5 local Authorized to Offer agents for the New York Life branded AARP life, annuity and long-term care products available to AARP members. Rebecca believes in supporting those that have a vision and a dream, which is why she served on the board for ReVolve, a homegrown 501c3 focusing their efforts towards Kansas City's green impact/urban core zone and the rewards of a healthy lifestyle through cycling (www.revolvekc.org).
