Insurance is a recession-proof industry. It will always have work because there will always be accidents and weather-related disasters.
“The long-term vision of what Monica saw was to open up the industry to young people and expose them to something they ordinarily would not know about. There are multiple career paths in insurance. It’s recession proof and pandemic proof. And let’s be honest, you can make a lot of money. I am happy to be a part of it.”

Monica Denise Richardson is driven by purpose. Nothing slows down her burning passion to serve. “Transforming lives gives me energy. It’s what excites and ignites me.” As founder and CEO, her drive permeates the culture at Encore Claim Services.
With a Bachelor of Science in Food and Nutrition and a Masters Degree in Human Resources, and following a10-year career in hospitality, Monica shifted gears when family became her first priority. Insurance provided the source of bread and the flexible hours led to more family time and global experiences. She was bit by the insurance bug.
From her start at State Farm to the head of her own company today, the past 22 years in various roles have immersed her into every aspect of the insurance industry. She blends that expertise with the passion of transforming lives to mastermind the Encore mission and curriculum.
Family remains the cornerstone of her life, inspired by the 59-year marriage of her parents and supplemented by a healthy dose of hot yoga and pilates.
