Wanita Thompson has always been in the business of educating others, although her students have slightly changed. After three decades in elementary education, Wanita retired her teaching certification and joined the family firm.
At Thompson Insurance and Financial Services she began as an administrative assistant and is now a licensed agent and customer care specialist.
Wanita is committed to ensuring her clients’ satisfaction, saving them time and energy, by troubleshooting all of their retirement planning questions. Whether it’s an application inquiry or a request for health care or financial information, Wanita finds the solutions her clients are seeking.
“My goal is to make it as easy as possible for my clients to get the answers they need,” she says. “Even though it may take some searching and multiple phone calls, it is rewarding to know I found those answers to my clients’ problems.”
Working as a teacher’s assistant for six years ignited Wanita’s passion to educate others, so she went back to school for her teaching certification. For the next 24 years, Wanita taught first through fourth grades at the local public school.
A Vermont native, Wanita loves the outdoors, especially the Northeast Kingdom where there are many lakes and mountains to experience. Family time is very important to Wanita. She enjoys spending time with her daughter Meghann and her family, which is much easier now that they have moved to Vermont. Wanita continues to make frequent trips to Virginia to visit her son Derek and his family.
