I started in the insurance industry in Columbus, OH in 1988

 

After 5 years transferred to and worked NC, SC and Virginia in the capacity of Agency Director.

 

During the next 5 years I built and lead the number one sales team in the country. Achieved President’s Club status as an Agent as well as an Agency Director for every year there.

 

Became a member of Chairman’s Council for just under a million dollars in personal sales.

 

Earned promotion to an Agency Owner then came to Texas in 1998, Opened my first agency in Bedford Texas where in addition to building a top performing agency I earned membership to the Presidents Roundtable for mentoring, developing and promoting others into agency ownership.

 

I also served time as a Regional Manager traveling across the country and working closely with other agencies providing sales and field training support needed in order to build and develop successful operations.

 

Before my tenure as a Regional Manager I headed up a company launch team where I traveled the country with a group of top performers dedicated to going into new territories to “launch” startup agencies from scratch.

 

"2002 was the year of what I believe to be my greatest accomplishment for this was when I met and married Michele. Together as my best friend, fellow expert and top achiever on her own account we founded and lead TEAM Sellors Agencies." 

I have had the blessing of working in this industry since 1997.

 

I never dreamed of having a career that would be so exciting, challenging, personally and financially rewarding as this one has been for me and my family. 

 

I was fortunate to meet someone who was in this industry, Catherine, who talked to me about this wonderful opportunity back in 1997. At the time I was pregnant with my 3rd child and worked in the customer service industry. I knew that I needed to find something that would better provide for me and my family.

Catherine knew my situation and that I enjoyed working with people which is why she talked with me about working in this industry.

I started as an agent in North Carolina, worked my way up to become a top 5 Agency Director and then transferred to Houston TX in order to start up a new agency.

 

Since beginning this journey, I married the love of my life, have 7 beautiful children, went from meeting with clients and making positive impacts on their lives to hiring individuals and helping them change their and their families lives in so many positive ways.

I love the people and family environment we have here at TSA (TEAM Sellors Agencies) and the impact we make every day within our communities.

I will forever be thankful for the opportunity Catherine gave me so many years ago.

My career began and ends here.

Meet Our Executive Leadership Team

Agency Corporate Trainer

Julie Nalluri

I began my career in Training somewhat by accident. While working on my Master's in Speech Communication, my Department Chair asked me to teach a class for him.  After trying to convince me (unsuccessfully) to pursue a Ph.D., he suggested I look into corporate training. Upon graduation, I landed a role as a Learning Specialist for Harley-Davidson Financial Services in Carson City, Nevada and I never looked back.

My career eventually led me to Dallas and in June of 2011, I began working for the Home Office of Liberty National as their Sales Training Manager.  At the time, I didn't know anything about life insurance. However, a mere week after joining the company, I attended a meeting with all of the Agency Owners. That meeting opened my eyes to the importance of life insurance. I heard so many moving and emotional stories about how Liberty National's Agents were helping people through some of their darkest hours...I thought, what an amazing company to be a part of!

I worked at the Home Office for 5 years before accepting a position as the Learning Supervisor at Chewy where I had the opportunity to build a training team from the ground up. After launching Chewy's Grand Prairie facility and growing the training department from a one-person show to a team of nine, I stepped down so that I could start a business with my husband's family.  However, the lure of training was never off my radar and one day I found myself sitting down with Michele and Eric Sellors to discuss their dream of taking the training at Team Sellors Agencies to the next level. And here we are!

I am passionate about your growth and success, so if you need anything, let's talk!
 

Quality Manager

Sara Palmen

I was born in Reno, Nevada.

After graduating from high school, I worked full time in the restaurant industry for several years while also attending a local community college working on my prerequisites for a nursing career.

After almost two years of juggling full-time work and full-time school, I realized I wasn't cut out for competing academically in the nursing program. I was already earning nearly six figures working at one of the most prestigious restaurants in downtown Dallas, so I dropped out of school.

 

About three years later I realized the restaurant industry was never going to fulfill the lifestyle I wanted for the future I envisioned having a family.

I felt it time to find a different industry.

 

In June of 2016 I interviewed with Team Sellors Agency. I was hired as an agent where I quickly excelled. I finally found something, I not only enjoyed doing but found myself talking about ALL the time even when I wasn't working.

Now that I was in a stable position that I enjoyed I began working on that "future & family" I had always desired.

 

I became pregnant with my first son. I was blessed to have the opportunity to take an extended period of time away from work to really get to enjoy being a mom.
When I was finally ready to come back to work the Sellors had a new opportunity for me with hours that were more conducive to my life as a mom.

I became the Quality Manager in September of 2019 and I absolutely love it! There hasn't ever been another company that I have worked with that I have actually enjoyed coming to work and being at work every day.

 

I found my forever work family here with TEAM Sellors Agencies!

Regional Agency Director

Thomas "Tommy" Pope

Raised in a small rural town in Tennessee, I had always worked in the construction business. Building a house that would soon become a home gave me a ton of pride, as well as a deep sense of accomplishment. I enjoyed what I did; however, I knew that I wanted more for my future than the back-breaking work of manual labor.

In 2012, at the age of 27, I enrolled in Bethel University with plans to complete my bachelor’s degree in Business Management & Organizational Development. Two years later I was finally a college grad. Although, the celebration was short lived upon receiving many rejection letters requiring “management experience”. I had learned the hard way that a college degree is not always a one-way ticket to success.

Finally, in September of 2014, Liberty National called to schedule an interview. Immediately I knew that I had found my new home! A stable, reputable company that would give me the opportunity for professional, as well as personal growth, was exactly what I needed. Since joining Liberty National 4 years ago, I have received 3 promotions!

TEAM Sellors Agencies has given me the environment needed to grow my own career, while developing the careers of those that rely on me most. The future is a bright one here at TEAM Sellors Agencies, and I am excited to work with those who choose to follow me through this amazing opportunity!

Lisa Blanton

I was blessed to start my career with Team Sellors Agencies of Liberty National in October 2011. 

 

After a seventeen month battle with cancer with my mom and at the same time my sister-in-law, my immediate family experienced two job losses, a bankruptcy, and a foreclosure. The year 2010 was emotionally, physically and financially devastating. 

A visitor at the hospital asked the question if either had a cancer policy; I didn’t know such a thing existed. I started doing research to find a company that sold both life and cancer coverage and I found Liberty National Life. 

After working in the death care industry for seven years, I have witnessed the difference that life insurance can make at the time of need and I knew that I wanted to make an impact in the lives of many people, including my own. 

 

This career has turned my life a complete 180 degrees. In my first year with TSA, I earned $106,000. I have never looked back!

 

I have held the positions of Agent, Supervising Agent, and Corporate Trainer. I am now an Agency Director leading my own team. I take pride in helping others achieve the same success that I found when coming to this agency. It makes me so proud to see others achieve their goals and work toward becoming financially independent. 

 

In my life and career, there is NO Plan B!!  I love TSA, It is my opportunity and I can share it with you as well!

 

Yours in Service!

Katie Carlough

I was born and raised in the Dallas area, after high school, I attended Texas Tech University where I graduated in 2016 with a degree in Corporate Retail Management. After graduation, I found myself working as a stylist and I dreaded going to work every day. In October of 2016, I joined Team Sellors Agencies and been blessed with the opportunity of a lifetime.

 

I found a career where I love what I do, and where I love getting out of bed in the morning. There is no limit on how much success one can attain in this career. I've found my "big girl job" and I never intend on leaving.

Worksite Agency Director

Chris Gebhardt

I was born and raised here in the DFW area and have always found value in working with and for my community.  This is something I continue now with Liberty National.

 

Before joining the TEAM Sellors Agencies, I spent 11 years as a member of the US Army Reserve, serving with the 302nd Military Police Company in Grand Prairie Texas. In addition, I worked in the private security industry as the Security Manager of Fort Worth-based Lackland Security for more than five years. 

The sense of comradery and teamwork that I experienced in the military has always been important to me, and I value it greatly in my career now.

 

At the beginning of 2018, I joined the team here at TEAM Sellors Agencies/Liberty National.  In the time I have been with this agency, I’ve received two promotions including recently moving into an Agency Director position with the TEAM Sellors Agencies.  This is a career path that I had never expected to take, but one that has been incredibly rewarding for me, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. 

As we continue to grow our team I look forward to mentoring and training those who choose this extremely rewarding career- aka “opportunity of a lifetime.”

Geena Mitchell

Hi! My name is Geena and I am with Team Sellors Agencies out of our Addison office. I have worked for TSA over 7 years now. I started as the receptionist then moved into the Office Manager position. Most recently I have earned a promotion to Agency Director with more growth coming!

 

I love helping people and watching people grow in their careers and couldn't imagine doing anything else! 

 

TSA for life!

Worksite Agency Director

Bill Fischer

I was born on Long Island, New York.  I married my wife Dorcas in 1993 and am happily married with 4 children.  I went to college at the University of Texas in Arlington and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice in 1986. 

I have always looked at life as an adventure, and through the years I have sought to challenge myself through various hobbies.  I am an accomplished songwriter and have produced a CD called “His Song” in 2011.  I helped write a song called “Freedom to Believe” which was exclusively played on a movie called “The Mis-Education of Joy”. 

I worked at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company for 30 years working on major aircraft programs doing all types of Security.  I earned the prestigious Lockheed Martin Aero Star Award in 2013.  I was laid off in 2017 and began to search for a new career that was different from what I was accustomed to.  I prayed to God for direction and asked that he would open the door wide for the career that he wanted me to pursue.  In August 2017 that door was opened, and I began my career with TEAM Sellors Agencies in Hurst as a Benefits Specialist.  It has been an adventure through the years, and I was promoted to Agency Director in January 2020.  The decision of starting a career with the Liberty National Division of Globe Life was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.

I currently work in the Texas Department of the Military as a Texas State Guardsman.  During calamity and civil unrest, I volunteer to help Texans by providing food shelter and comfort.

I look forward to the future and am excited to see what the next chapter of my life holds for me, as I mentor my Supervising Managers and their Agents to grow in their own careers while we help businesses and their employees with awesome benefits.

I am reminded in scripture that “I can do all things through Christ who Strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13
