Entrepreneur of the Month-July (Series 3 of 4)


LL Cool J said, “Dreams don’t have deadlines.” Roanita Jenkins realized that she didn’t have a deadline, but it was time to fulfill her dream! She left Vantage after 13 years and opened her own insurance agency, Roanita Jenkins Insurance Agency, LLC, in 2011. She said, “When I opened the doors of my agency, I wanted to be a different kind of insurance agent. I never want to be the kind of agent to focus on commissions for myself. I wanted to share with others my knowledge of insurance, and I wanted to be the type of agent that always put the needs of my client first and foremost.” She decided the best way to do that was to operate as an Insurance Consultant as well as an independent Agent.

Ms. Jenkins became appointed with every major carrier on the market! She also studied the market for all types of products; so, she could always offer options that best fit her clients’ needs. In addition, she made the commitment to always operate with transparency, integrity (which included refusing to do any exclusive contracts with any carriers), and loyalty. Roanita also provides flexibility by offering coverage for various types of insurance, including the following: health, life, dental, burial, and Medicare. Do you need individual coverage or coverage for your business? Roanita Jenkins Insurance Agency, LLC, can provide both services for you. Visit her Website at http://www.rjiagency.com/.

The freedom to be sure that I have the best things for them on the market gives me personal gratification!-Roanita Jenkins

She said, “Since I have an extensive background in working with an insurance company, I love that I am always able to effectively advise my clients! I enjoy helping them in ways that may not have otherwise been available to them.” Furthermore, she enjoys the freedom of looking at the entire market of products without having to worry about being a captive agent with one company. She said, “The freedom to be sure that I have the best things for them on the market gives me personal gratification!”
