Key Speakers

Christopher Westfall
Senior Savings Network

 

Christopher Westfall built Senior Savings Network into one of the most admired agencies in the industry for its revolutionary client acquisition strategies, demonstrating the power of marketing on social media and delivering insurance solutions to clients nationwide by phone, long before the pandemic forced agents to consider them.

Senior Savings Network includes a Medicare insurance agency based in South Carolina with dedicated employees and many external, independent agents serving thousands of clients nationwide with their Medicare needs. Inspired by his grandmother’s battle with an insurance company over hospital payments, Westfall, a law enforcement officer at the time, founded the company in 2008. His extensive library of direct-to-consumer educational videos on YouTube and word-of-mouth referrals have fueled explosive growth.

Senior Savings Network was purchased by Senior Market Sales in September of 2021.

Tabitha Justice
Savvy Social Security Strategies

 

In 2014, Tabitha Justice was preparing for a career in International Humanitarian projects when her daughter suddenly became incredibly Ill and required constant care. Tabitha quickly found herself overwhelmed with the onslaught of provider questions, insurance networks and long waiting list. Having no experience with these problems, she turned to her network of friends in the medical field to help her understand all of her options. During this time, she also started working in health insurance sales so she could work from home and still care for her daughter. Tabitha’s circumstances for entering the health insurance field massively influenced how she built her practice, Savvy Social Security Strategies. She focused on building a network of experts in the senior industry to help her clients and the community. Today her network and advocacy group, Bringing Back the Village, has received national attention and is focused on creating kinder, stronger and healthier communities for our older neighbors. Tabitha is on a mission to change America, one community at a time.
