As our client, you will have a team of highly qualified professionals working for you to provide you with the best coverage for you, your family, or your business. Building a long-lasting relationship with our clients is our number one priority.
As a local independent agent, Manchester resident, and NH native, Keith Beausoleil knows many NH families and businesses. He can help you with your Auto, Home, Umbrella, Life Insurance, Multi-Family or Income Property, Condo, Renters, Boat, Snowmobile, Motorcycle, ATV, RV, and Commercial/Business Insurance needs.
Outside of work, Keith is an avid runner, cyclist, and casual triathlete. When the season changes Keith spends time with family snowmobiling all over NH or skiing in the white mountains with his family.
Cheryl lived in southern NH for the past 15 years and really enjoyed being a part of this close-knit community. Recently, Cheryl’s family had an opportunity to move to southern TX and they went for it. Cheryl works from her TX home and does everything she used to do here in Manchester at her home office. A lot of what an agent does takes place over the phone and email so we can use technology to be close to clients even when we’re 1,000 miles away! Clients can still come to the Manchester office to talk with and see Cheryl over Skype and Facetime. In her free time, Cheryl enjoys being home when her daughter gets off the bus, running, and spending time with her family doing fun outside activities (when it’s not too hot, HA!).
Like a lot of folks in southern NH, Carla moved here from Massachusetts and has been a NH resident for the past 15 years. When Carla is not in the office, she enjoys working out, spending time at family sporting events, and time away in Maine with her family.
Kate has been a life-long resident of New Hampshire and currently lives in Manchester with her husband and two boys. She enjoys camping, baking, and spending time with family and friends. If Kate has any free time after that (HA!) she loves cheering on her husband, Jimmy Lehoux, local country music artist while he plays gigs here in NH and all over New England.
A graduate from SNHU, Chris Rivard has been a lifelong resident of Southern NH, born and raised in Manchester. He now lives in Hudson with his wife and daughter. Chris is an avid and competitive golfer and music enthusiast. When he is not working at Fortified he enjoys his weekend “gig” as a DJ specializing in entertaining weddings all over New England. So when you talk to him, you’ll understand his “radio voice” over the telephone.
Debbie comes to us with over 10 years of insurance experience from the agency side, working for AMS, and as a personal lines underwriter with the Concord Group Insurance Company (one of our fine carriers that we offer). Debbie is overqualified for her role to say the least! We really enjoy having her in the office.
When Debbie is not working, she thinks about snow and doing some skiing or snowshoeing with her family. When she’s not thinking about snow she loves to visit New York City to visit her family and bring back some great pastries.
Kim moved from Massachusetts and has lived in New Hampshire for the past 13 years. When Kim is not working she enjoys singing, spending time with her family, and looking forward to the summer to go hiking and boating on the lake.
Patrick J. Conway
Patrick has recently joined Fortified Insurance Agency from Appletree Insurance Agency. Appletree was an agency that he founded 25 years ago and brings that experience to Fortified in assisting new and current customers by selecting the quality insurance coverage. He is an alumnus of Niagara University with a Bachelor of Arts degree and he attended John Marshall Law School in Cleveland.
He is a Trustee of the Derry Friendship Center and has been active in fundraising for a number of initiatives surrounding solutions for alcohol and drug addiction in several communities in New Hampshire. Most recently he coordinated with others to create an annual 5K road race for the Derry Friendship Center, a very well attended event and finished himself “without any hospitalization” a comfortable 64 out of 132 runners.
When not working at the office on Saturdays, he enjoys writing bad poetry, incredibly complicated but clumsy fiction which he inflicts on Deborah, his wife of 23 years. Other pursuits including attending theater, movies, and anything to do with his grandchildren.
