Joan A McKee Agency Inc - About The Agent

My Background

I have 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry. I began my career in London, working in for a busy insurance broker. We sold auto, home and business insurance. Shortly I returned to my home in Dublin Ireland. I worked as an underwriter for Eagle Star insurance company. My work here was spent working with the general public and insurance brokers. I preferred the sales aspect of the business and shortly moved to working for AA Ireland. This company was the largest insurance brokers in Ireland and England. They had managed to figure out what the customer wanted. Working at the AA I worked my way up to become an Area Insurance Sales Supervisor. I had the privilege of running my own office and managing staff. My parents immigrated to Chicago in the 1950's, they had 6 daughters raised in Oak Lawn, Illinois. They moved back to Ireland and my life was spent, listening to "How everything in America is better". I was curious and joined some of my family in Chicago in August 1993. I immediately felt at home in the large Irish community here in Chicago. I worked for a short time with a major competitor and finally found home with American Family Insurance. This company offered me the "promise", I needed to deliver to customers. You will find the culture of American Family Insurance to be very friendly, open and honest. I love my job, delivering on promises and helping to restore dreams to our customers.
