My employee benefits career began many years ago in Indianapolis, Indiana working for an actuarial firm. I started specializing in ‘Worksite’ with Colonial Life in 1987 – long before the term existed. I moved to State College, Pennsylvania in 2001 and in 2006 my son, Nash Skiles, relocated to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to launch another office. We have continued to grow and opened our Lancaster, Pennsylvania office in 2012 where we are now based.
BEST was founded based on my continued commitment to not only help employees understand the benefits they are offered at work, but to also help them understand which benefits might best suit their own unique needs. With the implementation of ACA, the Marketplace, SHOP, and other terms flooding their senses, employees need assistance more than ever before when it comes to understanding their benefits and making informed decisions.
I am an active member of multiple human resource organizations, industry focused groups, and am an occasional speaker, presenter and/or vendor at many related events. I am certified as a Continuing Education instructor in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey and enjoy instructing CE events with my peers regarding current events within our industry.
I enjoy working together with my son and building a brand that is well received and respected within our marketplace. I also enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and visiting New York City to spend time with my daughter who lives in Brooklyn, NY.
