After receiving a Bachelor of Science in music education from the University of New Hampshire and a Master of Science in music education from Queens College, Jane O’Malley went into the profession of selling bonds. Subsequent to the United States government stopping the printing of bonds, she decided to utilize her business acumen and shifted her business toward helping seniors with insurance-related procedures.

In her position, she helps seniors and clients with disabilities with their Medicare coverage.

Before embarking on her current career path, Ms. O’Malley taught high school in New York in the summers from 1963 to 1968, and elementary and junior high school in Ohio from 1968 to 1970 before moving back to New York. Formerly active with the Sisters of the Good Shepherd from 1973 to 1985, she was a group home parent, where seven teen girls lived with her in Babylon Village, New York.

There are a couple of things that have motivated her in this profession; she embraces working with the senior population. This is a great business, in that as long as a client stays with her, she is able to receive residual compensation. She is also in a business that people need that makes her feel very valued. Ms. O’Malley is also grateful for her background in teaching, which allows her to easily interpret complicated insurance jargon to all clients.
There are many memorable moments in Ms. O’Malley’s career. Most recently, she had a client who was furloughed from her job for three months.

What separates Ms. O’Malley from others in her field is her compassion for my clients and she will go to every avenue to help solve a problem. She answers the phone or calls back within a short time to anyone who calls, and that is appreciated. She is there for her clients and she also makes a point to contact them throughout the year. Ms. O’Malley truly loves working with the senior market. Being a senior herself, she can relate to their concerns; often, they have many misconceptions and misinformation.
