CRAIG — When a woman who loves helping people met a company that does just that, a winning combination was born.

AFLAC Independent Associate Sheila Davis opened her business in Moffat County about a year ago.

Within that year, she was recognized as the second-highest new account opener in the state securing about 30 new business clients.

A box full of awards and honors is nice, but for Davis, helping people is what truly makes her business rewarding.

“I’ve had a few claims now, and it’s really helped my clients to have extra money when they needed it,” Davis said. “I love being a part of the community, being out and about. I get to know what’s going on in the community.”

One of her goals for the next 12 months is to continue the momentum from 2017.

“There are still quite a few businesses that I haven’t touched yet. I need to get out there,” Davis said.

She’s also noticed a high demand for individual accounts.

“I’m going to start focusing on helping individual people,” she said.

AFLAC was originally designed to help people who were diagnosed with cancer.

“Major medical will pay medical bills, while AFLAC pays you cash, and sometimes, that keeps your head above water,” she said.

The company continues to help people with cancer.

“Every time we give a duck or buy a duck, we contribute to a charity to help with childhood cancer. Last year, Colorado AFLAC agents donated about half a million dollars to AFLAC childhood cancer,” Davis said.

At times, her job can be challenging.

“The hardest part of the job is knowing that people will need this type of insurance, but many won’t realize it until its too late,” Davis said. “Don’t wait for an injury or illness.”
