My Background

Family tradition in the insurance business

I am the second generation of my family in the life insurance business. My father, Leon Kobrin, of blessed memory, was a pioneer in the field of finding policies for high-risk candidates. I grew up in his general agency.

I entered the business full-time in 1991. Prior to that, I had extensive experience in business operations management, sales, marketing, and distribution.

Higher education and training

I graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey in 1980. I earned a BA in Environmental Studies. I received an authentic liberal arts education focusing on resolving social issues through critical thinking, interdisciplinary problem-solving, and innovative studies. I also received extensive training in group leadership and organizational development.

I am also a dedicated student of Ba Gua kung fu, and train at the Blue Dragon School of Martial Arts in Bergenfield, NJ.
