Ashley Ricca

I am a licensed senior agent and work in all aspects of the business but my expertise lies in customer relations. With a degree in Business Management, my team and I work together to help overcome the stigma that surrounds insurance sales. Health and Life Insurance products are a necessary part of life and with the plethora of choices out there, people need a safe environment to choose what is right for them. We do not “sell” insurance. We explain what is available, and help guide our clients towards the best insurance opportunities for their unique needs.

In my spare time, I love to travel and appreciate the arts. I danced competitively for over ten years and try to see as many Broadway shows as possible. I have a deep love for animals and help support the humane society as much as we can.

Bill Ricca

As a licensed senior agent, I specialize in client education. With a background in medicine, medical management, and post-secondary education, along with a degree in Business Management, I am uniquely qualified to review all health coverage options and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each in a way that is easy to understand. Rather than a “sales pitch”, I simply offer objective information on each option and answer any questions you may have so that you can decide what is best for you and your family.

On a more personal note, I enjoy traveling with my wife, I’m a big movie buff, and love to tinker with photo editing and graphic design.
