Thank you to everyone who participated in ‘Tell Us Something Good’, presented by IBAM and Wawanesa Insurance!


Contest Winners:

Paula Carlson from Patill/St. James Insurance

Megan Leflar from Western Financial Group


Paula Carlson

Paula Carlson is our most beloved staff member.   Looking for a career change close to retirement, she went out and got her Level one licence through IBAM.  She chose our brokerage to work at even though she lived all the way across the city from us and uses transit as she wanted a family atmosphere.  She picked up on our paperless system and all our computer programs and was working independently doing clerical and looking after autopac clients very, very quickly.  She always arrives with a smile on her face, has the most wonderful positive outlook on people, insurance and life in general.  Not a day goes by that she doesn’t make someone, staff and clients alike, have a better day.   Paula has quickly become a very integral and important part of the Patill family, and when she does retire, she will definitely leave a void.   We all admire her excellent work ethic and the trek that she makes each workday to sit on the front lines!

Congratulations Paula!

Megan Leflar

Megan went above and beyond to help save a very important and large client. The client called on Megan’s day off while in Winnipeg. Megan knew the client was out of her knowledge/expertise.  Her focus was saving the relationship between the client and Western so she then went higher and the client was happy with the results and continues to be Western client.

Great Job Megan!
