Shari has been with the Cornerstone family since September 2019 and is a valuable addition to the team. Shari’s attention to detail and service-first attitude has added a level of professionalism that is tough to come by.
Karen has been serving in the industry since 1990. After deciding to step down from corporate management at Humana in 2018, Karen has been a very welcome addition to the Cornerstone team. Dedicated to customer service and excelling in organization, Cornerstone is better as a group because of Karen.
