Julia Cooke

Julia, as an independent health insurance broker, has an in-depth knowledge of both Medicare, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), and the Washington HealthPlanFinder. This makes her a valuable commodity in today's health insurance marketplace. In other words, she has the ability to take large quantities of very boring information that virtually nobody wants to read and she boils it down into bite-size morsels of meaningful descriptions of what it really means in a way that makes sense.

It should go without mention, but it's worth pointing out Julia's loyalty when it comes to serving her client's best interests. She is appointed with most all of the insurance carriers available in King County and able to offer their plans, but she is beholden to none. Her services are free of charge to her clients. Her background prior to her insurance career involved European youth ministry where she developed the patience she now needs. She does not use an umbrella, as she was raised here in western Washington.
