Julie began her insurance career in 1985 as a Customer Service Representative at Moore & Alvord Insurance Agency and grew into a sales position by aggressively educating herself through seminars and experience. She obtained her Property and Casualty license in 1988 and her Life and Health license in 1990.
Julie left Moore & Alvord Insurance Agency in 1994, when she joined Oligny Insurance (now known as Founder Group Insurance, Inc.) In 1996 she pursued her dream and opened the J. Phillips-Hall Insurance agency as a sole proprietor. Julie dedicated the name Phillips to honor her father’s name for his strength and his courage that the Winsted community knew all to well. John G. Phillips, Jr., owned and operated Moore & Alvord for 30 years until he passed away in 1994.
In 2000, Julie was awarded the agency excellence award for quality service by Middlesex Mutual Assurance Company. In 2002 she was given the SBA (Small Business Association) award for “Women in business” through her success.
In 1991, Julie became a member of the Board of Directors at the Winsted Area Public Day Care Center, Inc., where she served as Chairman from ’93-94 and again as a member from 2006-2009. Julie joined the Winsted Rotary in April of 1994 where she served as Past Secretary of 3 years, Past President 2000-2001 and past treasurer for 3 years (in that order!) She received the highest designated award in 2009, Paul Harris Fellow, for her “tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world.”
