Les Brown once said, ‘Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.’ I am so fortunate to lead an amazing team of dedicated and passionate people who are focused on providing the right insurance at the best price to safeguard our clients’ now and protect their futures. I am passionate about helping people succeed financially and love that through our education and advocacy, we make sure our clients’ dreams reach fruition. When I’m not pouring my all into our company, team and clients, I’m often found running, camping, traveling and spending time with my family.

VP Strategic Relations

After retiring from the Navy, I found Insurance to be an incredibly rewarding second career. Networking and forming relationships are the most enjoyable aspect of this business for me personally. My wife and I just celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary. We are foodies and really enjoy vegetable and flower gardening.

It is said that the most important thing is to choose, and whatever you choose, take it seriously and give it your best. Since 2013, my choice has been to be a part of our amazing team. I enjoy cooking, tackling home renovation projects and indulging in anything active that is outdoors with my husband and fur baby.

VP Commercial Lines

Carpe diem—seize the day. That’s my mantra. I seize the challenges of growing commercial lines and take pride in our flourishing team. If I’m not taking up the reins of growth, you’re likely to find me seizing the day on the golf course.

It is said that if you learn to use it right, adversity will buy you a ticket to a place you couldn’t have gone any other way. I leverage a great team and strong industry relationships to drive strategic growth, outside of which I love to boat on the Lynnhaven River with my family.

VP Finance

denese.balino@choiceins.com

Since joining Choice in 2013, the best part of my job has been seeing people grow and helping them see their strengths and believe their ideas matter. All the while, I am challenged and able to grow as well. Every endeavor in life gives us an opportunity to choose growth. Whether I’m at work or enjoying a good book, creating art and graphic design at home, there’s opportunity to develop. As Roy T. Bennett once said, “Attitude is a choice, Happiness is a choice, Optimism is a choice, Kindness is a choice, Giving is a choice, Whatever choice you make, makes you. Choose wisely.”

VP Marketing

Dr. Seuss said it best, ‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’ And here I am, in a place where I can passionately convey and share the Choice brand throughout various marketing channels while nurturing a core team mentality that spans all staff across all locations. Outside of the office, I love to sing, experiment with DIY crafts and decorate my home.
