Meet The Team [Teresa Mapes]

Client Service Associate

Teresa Mapes

Teresa Mapes joined the Insight Wealth Strategies (IWS) team in 2011, in order to provide administrative support to the growing firm. Her experience in supporting financial services practices spans over three decades. She has worked for insurance, investment, and financial planning firms throughout the course of her career.

Given that she is frequently the first point of contact with IWS, Teresa is skilled at quickly identifying clients’ concerns and connecting them with the appropriate person within the firm. Teresa also handles all of the administrative details associated with insurance applications – from inputting data, to following up with underwriters.  Because of the confidential nature of her work, she is sensitive to ensure client privacy, and treats the information in her custody with the utmost professionalism and care.

Paying attention to details is an important component of Teresa’s job. “Getting things right the first time, however long it takes, is the way to succeed in this position,” she says. Another aspect Teresa enjoys is the ability to work with people of all backgrounds and personalities. “What keeps me interested in this line of work, is the fact that we can help people take care of what matters most to them using proven products and solutions,” she says.  Teresa is licensed to sell life and health insurance.

Originally from Wichita, Teresa resides there with her husband, Marty. Together they have twelve grandchildren, and three rescue dogs. They have recently acquired a camper and are excited about putting it to use to explore the country when they retire.
