I have been working with the Insurance Advisor in International Affairs since the spring 2020 semester around my medications and insurance related concerns, and I am moved by the assistance she has provided throughout. "She never fails to say, “I am here to help you”, “I can further assist you if needed”, “Please do not hesitate to come to talk to me”, which is very encouraging." She also helped me time and again, with my medication questions, talking to my Aetna manager, and making sure I was getting the financial help for my medical equipment from the SEF. Her support was valuable at every step and I appreciate her time and efforts with me.

The Insurance Advisor in International Affairs was very patient with me from the first time I called to seek clarification and ask questions concerning my insurance and its limit. "She immensely helped me find what I needed. You know the interesting thing is the questions I first asked, like “How do I get to my insurance ID?”, and others I cannot share here, are things I should know but she was very patient with me. She helped with that, and helped me find all sorts of things I needed to know about my insurance. The next time I called about getting my insurance active, she attended to it and got it working when she said it would. There's so much I can share but I will keep it short by saying, Rhonda knows her job, she's helpful, very nice and happy to help. I have received so much help from her in a short time." I'm very grateful.
