Diane Finnestead has over 18 years in the insurance industry. Her career started as a Long Term Care Specialist with Genworth, which led to becoming a National Trainer and District Manager. Currently, Diane represents over 70 companies as a Health Benefits Specialist at J. Berg & Associates. She represents J. Berg & Associates on area boards, including the St. Louis Home Care Alliance, SOS (Services and Opportunities for Seniors), and EPR (Elite Professional Referrals). In addition to this experience, she also has a strong background in education. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from the University of North Texas, a Master’s in Teaching and an additional Master’s degree as an Education Specialist from Webster University. She also completed post graduate work in Music and Education at Northwestern University.
Diane has always loved helping others and communicating simple and affordable solutions to complex problems. Diane is no stranger to the questions of the under 65 as well as the over 65 populations when it comes to health, life, and long term care issues. Being a caregiver has given her a unique perspective on both sides of the issues regarding healthcare and aging. This motivates her to serve clients as if they were her own family and assist them with handling health challenges as well as aging with dignity.
While Diane has achieved much success in her career in terms of ongoing accolades, awards and recognition, she feels that these are secondary to her mission of helping others. She is grateful for her large referral business, and looks forward to helping those you care about. When she is not meeting with clients, she is travelling the highways and byways of Missouri and Illinois, singing along with the Broadway Channel. When she does take time off, she loves to travel internationally and laugh with her friends and family.
