Nancy McKenzie

It’s a true Canadian story; beginning in the first Calgary family owned and operated Tim Horton’s. When an employee called in sick, she learned the value of teamwork. When a machine broke down, she learned how to problem solve. When a customer placed a special order, she learned how to deliver above and beyond their expectations. With over twenty years in the insurance industry, for Nancy success quickly became defined by the lessons of hard work, dedication and caring for our clients.
