Welcome to the Virginia Peninsula Group

Client Appreciation Event

To thank all those who are clients of mine, a client appreciation event was held at the beautifully renovated 18th century home, the Richmond Powerhouse. With delicious hors d'heurves came great company and conversations. It was the perfect way to transition into the holiday season.


















Women's Leadership Luncheon

Northwestern Mutual held their annual Women's Leadership Luncheon at the beautifully decorated Jefferson Hotel. This year's speakers featured Dr. Christine Darden, one of the black women highlighted in Margot Lee Shetterly's 2016 book, "Hidden Figures", Deborah Davis, the CEO of Virginia Commonwealth University Hospitals and Clinics,and Candace Burns, an anchor for the 6pm and 11pm new casts for CBS 6 WTVR in Richmond. We had a wonderful time listening and learning from these amazing women!










ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation Munchkin 5K

The ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation hosted their 7th annual Dunkin' Donuts Munchkin Run to raise money to help and support children battling cancer. As a sponsor of the event, we were excited to hear that the money raised totaled $48,298. We are so thankful for all that ASKCCF does to support children with cancer, as well as supporting the families.





Oyster Roast

We had the privilege of sponsoring the Virginia Living Museum's Annual Oyster Roast on November 11. This sold-out event was a hit! With all-you-can-eat fresh local Rappahannock Oysters, live music, raffles, and more, we had a great time!


















Our team was honored to work with the VA Beach Northwestern Mutual office to help once again with the 94.9 CHKD Radiothon. In the first two hours of our shift, we raised more than $28,000! We are so proud of the work that CHKD is doing and has done to combat childhood cancer.



Hurricane Update

In support of the recent hurricanes, Northwestern Mutual funded the American Red Cross' Disaster Responder $250,000 to directly support relief activities, including volunteer training, equipment transportation and storage, and providing food, shelter, supplies, and medical and emotional support.

Internship Opportunity

Can you envision a life of freedom and calling your own shots?

Looking for a fast-paced, highly productive environment?

Think hard work should be recognized and rewarded?

Want to work for a company with exceptional financial strength?

Then this just may be the internship for you. To be considered, you must be a full-time student at a four-year college or university. We want you to have strong interpersonal skills, be self-motivated and have a history of personal success.

"Being a financial representative at Northwestern Mutual has been an extremely rewarding experience. I feel like I've learned more in one summer than I have in my entire life before that. Whereas classes an schooling are the foundation of bricks you start your life from, internships, and subsequently, careers are really where you find yourself and build up above the ground level to who you really want to be."

-Alec Gilliam, Financial Representative Intern

Income protected by Disability Insurance, Eyes Protected by Glasses

Our entire team had the opportunity to see the solar eclipse, thanks to those who took the necessary precaution of getting the special glasses. As one would expect, given the Northwestern Mutual culture, those with glasses shared with those who didn't have them, so that we could all share in seeing the (almost) total solar eclipse!
