I have the pleasure of leading a compassionate and knowledgeable team of individuals who love nothing more than helping local seniors navigate the Medicare maze. In my time away from work I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the yard or cruising lake Michigan in our boat.

In addition to being a licensed insurance Broker, I am also a Disability Representative who brings cases before administrative Law Judges with the Social Security Administration. This additional knowledge gives me ability to help those enrolling into Medicare due to a disability. In my time away from work I enjoy spending time with family, friends and our two dogs, Henry and Gibby.
Lesa OlszewskiLicensed Independent Agent
I am a Michigan State graduate and have been in insurance for over 10 years focusing on home, auto, life and LTC.

My goal as an insurance advisor has always been to make sure that I am helping people to the best of my best ability every day. Compassion, honesty, and hard work – are my hallmarks. Making the right decision about Medicare can be a very stressful time both at the initial enrollment period and during the yearly renewal. My goal is to eliminate that stress through education and strong advice. Seminars on Medicare are often the starting point for most people to understand the complexities of Medicare. I focus on making that educational experience as complete as possible so it will result in the best medical decisions for retirement.
Living in west Michigan, there are so many things to choose from when it comes to relaxing. Whatever it is, I always enjoy it more if my husband and three daughters are involved. But if I had to choose – it would be driving a boat!

As they say, “the only constant is change” which is very true with Medicare. I would love to help answer questions, compare all the plans for a best match, do annual reviews and in general, be your advocate.
