March 25th, 2021 will be Julie's last day before she retires and the staff here at Norwich Insurance Brokers have some messages for her...
HAPPY RETIREMENT TO JULIE!!! 17 years ago I decided to leave the dental field and endeavor into the Insurance world alongside my Mom; Julie Couwenberg. This week not only marks a milestone, it brings many emotions of happiness, excitement, anxiety and sadness as our work relationship comes to an end. Mom, your many years of hard work, dedication, leadership, perseverance and success have provided me the opportunity to grow and strive for the same success you have. You have so much to be proud of. You have built success from day 1. You have endured hardship and continued building success and you have not only been not a successful business leader, you have been a valued member of the community. Mom, I wish you a retired life filled with days of amazing merriments and blessings and great luck and happiness in all you do in your retired career! Since life starts at retirement I know your life as a retiree is going to be one heck of a terrific one. Enjoy your retirement. Be happy and healthy always! - Nicole
Enjoy your Retirement Julie!! Julie and I go back a long way… growing up in Otterville. We went to the same public school and high school and were at many functions together. I am happy for you Julie, enjoy your freedom!! I am only a phone call away and would be happy to visit or have you over for a visit anytime and share some laughs. I was hired at Norwich Insurance in May of 2019 and we reconnected just like always. So glad to have shared so many past memories with you as well as “work” memories! We have many more to make and I’m sure they will be full of laughter. Your work knowledge is very impressive and you have created a great business here at Norwich Insurance for yourself and your family. Be Happy, Healthy and Enjoy Life, you deserve it!!! All the best to you Julie, Love, your friend - Cheryl
Congratulations On Your Retirement Julie!! I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity of working here at Norwich Insurance Brokers and guiding us with your knowledge and support. Even though we only worked together for 3 short years, they were definitely memorable! I know we all greatly appreciate everything you have done for us, as well as the brokerage and you will be missed by many! Congratulations Julie on a successful career and I wish you all the best and happiness in your retirement!! - Jordan
Happy Retirement Julie! It has been a pleasure to work beside you, and learn from you over the last 4 years in the ever changing and thriving world of insurance. I feel mighty privileged to be a part of such an incredible team and the successful brokerage you have built over the years. Your devotion to the industry and determination to be successful business woman is much to aspire to. I hope you enjoy your retirement, and really take the time to look back at all you’ve accomplished. You have paved the way for us with your knowledge and expertise to carry on your legacy within our community. We will sure miss you in the office, guiding and supporting us through any curve the industry might throw at us, laughing and smiling as we make our way. Although you’ll be missed by many, I’m sure we’ll still see you lots! When one door closes, another door opens, and I can’t wait to find out what you have in store next! Enjoy your retirement Julie, I’m sure it’ll be a doozy! - Kelsey
Happy retirement Julie! I’ll always be so grateful for the opportunity you provided me here at NIB! I’m very honoured to be the first male to work here in over 20 years, why you thought I’d be a great fit I’ll never know! But you took a chance on someone who didn’t have an insurance background and I really appreciated it! Your knowledge of the industry is incredible and you’ve built a wonderful business here which I’m very proud to be a part of! We will definitely miss you around the office! However, I can promise it’s not going to be the last you’ll be seeing of me especially with summer coming around the corner. Enjoy retirement, all the best Julie! - Josh
Julie – Congratulations not only on your retirement but on all the incredible years of work you put into getting to this moment. It’s a big one that should be celebrated!! I hope that you feel proud of all the growth and success Norwich Insurance Brokers has achieved with your direction over the years. We all know how much our small town is going to miss your dedication to community, industry expertise and passion to provide an excellent customer service experience. It is easy to tell that for you, work was more than just about selling insurance, it was also about taking care of all of those around you. As you embark on this new adventure, just remember that your new job is to simply ensure that you enjoy your retirement!! - Katelyn
Have a wonderful retirement Julie! With love, Norwich Insurance Brokers!
