Stephen Day, Insurance Producer

Stephen is an Independent Agent. I like working in insurance because of its challenging nature and the personal relationships I get to build with our clients. I sell an important product that everyone needs. Phillips Insurance is a great place to work because of the CARE that is taken not only with the clients but also with staff. When I am not working, you can find me gardening, reading, or with my family. I also make wire wrapped jewelry and love to play board games. The three words that best describe me are: Inquisitive, eccentric, persistent. I love Thai food, coffee, and classic movies. My biggest goal in the next 5 years is to purchase my first home. Carlene is my cousin, and my boss (which is great). Kelsey and I married 7/20/19; she is into arts and crafts. My son Oliver is an energetic and joyful child. He loves to swim and play games. My favorite part about working at Phillips Insurance are my co-workers and bosses. Who are Wonderful and always there to help when I need them.
