A Word From Michael Barnes

“In my career as an Insurance Professional, I have quickly developed a passion for helping people simplify what is normally considered a complicated transaction.

Outside of my passion for my work, living in the Canadian Rockies has reignited my passion for the outdoors, which gave me the opportunity to fall in love with mountain biking, skiing and camping.”
