You’ll rarely meet a person with the combination of impressive talent and caring personality of Laura Podowski.  There’s a lot of love and compassion packed in her amazing mind and heart.  She can accomplish anything she sets her mind to with an amazing speed and accuracy.  As the underwriting manager at GoMedigap she loves supporting the members of her team and ensuring the agents have everything they need to take excellent care of the client.

When she’s not at work supporting her direct reports, peers and members of other teams she loves spending time with her husband, Reece, and her daughter Lily.  She also has a couple of unruly cats named Finn and Maeby she loves to love on – when they let her, of course.  If she has the opportunity to spend time outdoors hiking (preferably in Colorado) she jumps at the chance.  Laura’s heart cannot stand the thought of hurting a living being.  She loves animals and is passionate about animal rights and has been a vegan for several years.

When asked why she rocks at her job: “I love being a support to my team and for the agents. I know that when I support them, they can support our clients by always giving them accurate advice and information. I genuinely care about our clients and the work we do here at goMedigap.”

We asked our clients what they like about our services, our agents, or any other interaction with GoMedigap.

Richard, I never knew that when I entered your company that I would experience the absolute PERSONAL care Ive received.  Im not that old, but terrified of trying to do what is best alone.  I did it.  I found you and your company.  It is clear to me that you hire the right people to interact with people my age.  That is in itself, remarkable.  I told Henry that I wanted to speak to his supervisor.  He suggested I answer the survey.  Please understand that I am a teacher at heart: I love most kids and understand how to allow them to best perform.  Clearly you are not a teacher, yet you HAVE IT.  You get whom to hire and how to manage a trying business.  I am grateful for YOU and your excellent staff.  I feel so lucky to have found your company.  Well done, Sir.  Thank you!  Ginny Ladd
