Yaritza’s professional career started in Caracas, Venezuela after she graduated with a Bachelors in Economics in 1996. She went to work for Informix, a multinational database company, managing all sales transactions that went through that country’s branch.
Due to political instability in her native country, she moved to the US in the year 2000, pursuing a second career as a Multimedia and Graphic Designer that propelled her into the world of e-commerce marketing. By 2004, fortuitous life events introduced her to the insurance business and she obtained her 2-20 Property & Casualty License. Together with Paul Morris, they founded The Insurance Guy, a multi-line independent agency that serves success-minded individuals and families all over Florida.
In May 2016 Yaritza joined the team of professionals at Brown and Brown providing service to business, public entity, individual, trade and professional association clients nationwide. In 2018 Yaritza became the Leader at the Personal Lines Department and was trusted to take the department to the next level.
Throughout the years Yaritza has set time to give back to the community and participated with different non-for profit organizations, among them Habitat for Humanity - Women's Built - where the experiences and learning are valuable life lessons to keep for life; more recently she is now collaborating with OCRYL a foundation that is dedicated to coach underprivileged children to stay off the streets through sports as the “team mom”.
