Over the past decade, the world of health insurance and employee benefits has changed dramatically.

Her vast knowledge of the industry and hands-on experience enables her to take an aggressive approach to protecting her clients’ interests and their most valued assets – their employees. Theresa works closely with her clients, stressing the importance of employer and employee education on each company’s benefits offering.
In October 1995, Theresa began her career as a Customer Service Associate with Oxford Health Plans. Within a year, she moved into the Small Group arena, working with the Enrollment/ Auditing Department. By 1997, her career in sales launched as she excelled, becoming a leader in the organization. Having worked previously on the carrier side, Theresa believed she could more effectively assist groups as an independent employee benefits broker. In January of 2001, Theresa did just that and began working with small brokerage firm in Hightstown NJ as an independent employee benefits broker. Theresa’s dedication drew more than 90 clients, from two to 300 employees.
Theresa also specialized in Health Care Reform so that she could effectively offer her clients the best possible solutions. Knowing how critical taking the time to understand each client’s business and helping them navigate the complexities of the benefits environment was, Theresa understood that investing this time was essential. In 2012, Theresa launched Semple Benefits LLC. And in 2013, Theresa opened the benefits firm of Semple Solutions LLC. Semple Solutions specializes in understanding and navigating the rules and compliance of the Affordable Care Act. To date, Semple Solutions assists countless clients in attaining employee benefits, emergency preparedness plans, medical coverage, dental insurance, vision coverage, short and long term disability insurance and group benefits.
