    Aimee Gaddis Account Executive, Benefits and Commercial Lines

    I have worked in the insurance business since 2001. I started out in a very small agency and then came to work for GTPS Insurance Agency in 2002. I was actually hired in as the receptionist, a position I worked in for approximately six months before I moved to the personal lines division. After spending a couple of years as a personal lines producer, I became the personal lines manager. However, I did not stay there: I was on to the commercial insurance side of things where I became a customer service representative. Finally, I am here… still here… in commercial insurance sales, including life & health. It is challenging at times, but equally rewarding!

    About me: I am married to a my wonderful husband, David and my greatest accomplishment is and always will be my son, Collin. He is my pride and joy!

    Movies: I don’t watch them, so I don’t have a favorite.

    Best known for: Being outspoken

    My favorite quote is: “I’m not always perfect, but I am always me”. (I have no idea who said it, but I love it)!

    Pet peeve: Just one? People that are fake are my biggest pet peeve.

    Fun Fact: In the 7th grade Illinois state volleyball tournament, I set a record for the most consecutive service points in a game at 18. I think the record still holds. By the way, our team got 4th place!

    Megan Schweitzer Account Manager, Commercial Lines

    Biggest Pet Peeve (one of the few): Drivers on the interstate that cannot seem to drive at a constant speed. Cruise control, please.

    Fanatic: I am a die-hard Indianapolis Colts fan and have been for a long time. I get so nervous during the games that I don’t even like people to talk to me because I am so on edge. I am also addicted to hand sanitizer.

    Few of my favorite things: Sweets, family, country music, sunny, warm weather, and shopping…not necessarily in that order.
