Mission statement: From ancient times to current practice, for a blacksmith, the anvil is the paramount tool to the creative process. It is the platform where steel will be forged into something meaningful. Though hammers and chisels may fail over time, the anvil will last a lifetime. At get-benefits, the anvil represents the work we put into forging custom benefits for your needs and our commitment to serve you for a lifetime.

“The Bookworm”

Born and raised in Central Oregon, Colleen grew up on a 400-acre farm – let’s just say she knows a thing or two about raising pigs, bucking hay, and hard work. Since moving to Portland she has been working in the health care/insurance industry for over 27 years. She joined the get-benefits team in 2012. You may find her on the weekends in Powell’s Bookstore, hunting for antiques, or in a coffee shop visiting with friends.

When not in a crowd at a show she helps individuals and their families find the health plans that work best for them. With over 12 years of customer service experience, she has spent the last four with the team at Get-Benefits working on the individual insurance market.
