Working in retail during her early years taught Cherise a great many things. First and foremost: she learned she did not want to be working in retail in her golden years.  Luckily for TRUEbenefits, she changed career paths, working her way up from part-time receptionist to Vice President with another local firm. She came to TRUE in 2009 in order to balance her work with her life, and TRUE landed a valuable team asset. Ask Cherise and she’ll tell you:  she’s a “lifer.”

Cherise finds educating her clients’ employees on benefits – that moment when you see the light bulb “go on” in their eyes – to be one of the most rewarding parts of her job. Her clients love her quick responses and personal availability, and her thorough approach to her job.

Her children are her first priority, and she has large group of friends and family who are important to her, as well. In her free time, she likes to go boating in the Puget Sound intermixed with occasional lazy bouts of reading.
