After nearly three decades in the insurance business, Kaye Jankovic has decided it is time for her to make a change.
“It’s going to be different for sure,” said Jankovic, who is currently in her final week with Falkins Insurance. “I mean, I’ve put my whole life into that business.”
Jankovic and her partner Gale started in the business in 1983 with Evergreen, and then started with Falkins in 2003.
“I’ve been working hard for over 30 years, so I think it’s time for something different,” said Jankovic.
“I’ve gained lots of friends, and lots of good memories over the years… And the insurance business has been very rewarding in lots of ways.”
At 55, Jankovic is very excited about her future outside of the workforce. She is looking forward to spending time with her grandchildren, among other things.
“I think we might be doing some travelling. And we have a boat, so we will definitely be spending some time at the coast. I’m really looking forward to it,” she said.
Jankovic has been a resident of Golden since she was 10 years old, and she is very proud to have contributed to the community through her business.
“The rewards came from helping people get the proper coverage, and in the event of a claim, helping them through that process,” she said.
“Gale and I saw an opportunity all those years ago, and we started this business from scratch. So I’m very proud of what we have accomplished.”
Jankovic’s last day of work will be on Jan. 16.
