Andy Archer

LIA - Oklahoma City/Western Oklahoma

A resident of Edmond Oklahoma, I am a mother of 3 boys and have been married for 17 years. I was a marketing and advertising agent for a commercial real estate, property managing company before deciding to stay home to raise our children for 12 years.

It was an easy decision when deciding to go back to work and what I wanted to do.  I picked the Medicare Planning Industry because when my mother turned 65 she needed some help navigating through the complications of Medicare and which plan was best for her. It was a real eye-opener on how confusing it could be for others and I immediately felt a calling. I enjoy working with the Senior Market, and really feel like I am helping people work through some of the most difficult and sometimes confusing transitions in their life.

Choosing the right fit for each individual whether it is a Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage plan, Long Term Care, Final Expense or simply helping apply for extra help with medications is such a gratifying feeling and am very proud of the professional relationships I have developed with my members.

LIA - Oklahoma City/Western Oklahoma

I have been associated with outside sales for the last 5 years. My journey started when I decided to join the workforce again when all of my children were old enough for school. I have been working in the Medicare advantage/ supplement plans since 2017.  My passion is to help people make wise & informed decisions when it comes to their financial well being.

I have been married to my husband, Lee, for almost 20 years.  We have 4 beautiful children – Jacob (senior), Bella (sophomore), Laynee (8th), and Drake (7th). I am a co-ambassador of the Professional Moms of Edmond. We attend Cashion First Baptist Church.  I am also very involved with Cashion schools though the Cashion Education Foundation. Outside of working, I enjoy watching my children play sports, watch movies, read, and travel.

Nichole Branch

LIA - Eastern Oklahoma & Western Arkansas

My husband and I live in Arkansas and have four adult children. We find our greatest joy is just being with each other and traveling. I have learned I prefer hiking & mountains over lazy beaches & water. Yosemite / Mariposa Grove has been my favorite place to explore thus far.

I got my insurance license at the end of 2009, just in time to be thrown into the chaos of Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). I initially got it to supplement my income part-time while attending the R.N program at Carl Albert State College. After my first AEP, I was surprised at how satisfying it had been. Realizing I was still able to help and educate, I decided to change my career path. Today I am an independent agent licensed in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas and absolutely love what I do!

Lisa Cox

LIA - Tulsa Area

I have been helping people with their Medicare choices for 10 years. I enjoy serving seniors as if they were family members. In the beginning, I would say, “if you were my mother…”.  Now, I have to say, “if you were my sister…”.  Two of my 3 sons work Medicare with me.

I spend my time with 2 little girls of which we have guardianship and caring for a sweet variety of animals, mostly rescues.  I look forward to 2020 and the opportunities Local Insurance Advisors afford me.

Andrew Anderson, Local Insurance Advisor

Andrew Anderson

LIA - Columbia/Central Missouri

My name is Andrew Anderson, and I am 45. I live in a small town in a rural community, Smithton, Missouri – population 568.  I’m happily going on 22 years of marriage with my wife, Tiffany.  We have three kids ages 18, 21, and 24.

I have been in the insurance industry since 2011.  I started out selling life insurance, and then in 2013, moved my focus to the health side of the industry — falling in love with helping people transition and maneuver into and around Medicare.  I believe in the golden rule of treating people the same way I would like to be treated…with respect, compassion, and kindness.

LIA - Southern Oklahoma

I grew up in Southeast Oklahoma and graduated from Oklahoma State University.  Today, I am married with 8 grandchildren (soon to be 9 grandchildren!) with one great-grandson and another one on the way!  I have been an agent in all lines of coverage for the past 30 years and have been focused on Medicare coverage for the past 16 of those 30 years.

I very much enjoy helping people understand their Medicare options and providing assistance in accessing those options.
