Martena Estabrooks

Personal Lines Account Manager

Read more about Martena

After moving to Alberta in 2008 from the East Coast, insurance chose Martena. Martena worked in an insurance call centre and discovered that she would like to build strong, personal relationships with the clients she speaks with and not the “one call and done” scenario. So, she comes to Alpine insurance hoping that every interaction will be a memorable one and her clients will look forward to calling her for advice and her expertise to help them choose the insurance products best suited to their needs. Personally, Martena is an avid NASCAR fan and now has the unfortunate job to advise her clients that “racing” and “speed tests” in their cars invalidates their insurance. She wants to make insurance simple and understandable for everyone and is excited to talk to her clients.
