Name: Julie M. LaMere, LUTCF
Hometown: Webster, NY & Eagle Bay, NY
Month and Year Hired By Glover: Opened office May 1, 2015
Position Held: Account Executive …..but, since I AM the Saranac Lake office….Chief Cook & Bottle Washer?
Why did you want to work for Glover?/What drew you to us? I was introduced to John by Jim Booth of Booth Financial Associates whom I have worked with for more than 20 yrs. I was attracted by the agency size, carriers, support staff, etc but the personalities of those I met upfront sealed the deal.
What is your favorite part so far? The best part is being in business for myself but not by myself. The support & encouragement has been amazing! I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. And I wouldn’t trade the memory of John & Peter in their own version of the Verizon Commercial in the office parking lot when they came to install my IT….. “ Can you hear me now ?” or Ed’s chorus of “Oh Canada” on my voice mail. They’ve definitely gotten miles out of my out-of-the-way location!
Tell us something we don’t know about you. I’m the single mother of 2. My daughter Danielle is in her Junior year of college and my son Nicholas is starting his Senior year of High School. I also have a big Yellow Lab named Noah who comes to work with me every day. He sleeps under my desk and snores something awful! When he’s not snoring I often have to tell people he’s there because he does “other things” I wouldn’t want people to think are me!!
Are you involved in your community? If so, how? I am a member of the Saranac Lake Rotary Club.
What do you like to do on the weekends/spare time? In my spare time I like to hike and kayak. I love living in the Adirondack Mountains and enjoy all of the recreation available right outside my door. Not very happy about the big bear in my yard & all the damage he did to my shed last night though~
Favorite Movie? Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. I actually had the opportunity to meet the actor that played Charlie once; I worked with his brother for several years.
Favorite Sport?HOCKEY ~ My favorite player to watch…..My son Nick. He’s been playing since he was 4 and I love to watch him skate! Go Lumberjacks!!!
Favorite Artist (Singer, Painter, etc)? Favorite singer/actor ~ my daughter Danielle. She has a beautiful singing voice & is a talented young actress. She was a member of the Sound of America Honor Chorus for a European Tour in 2012 & was also chosen as a featured dancer of the tour. I love watching her perform.
