NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 4, 2016) - JoAnna Moore began her career directly out of college as a music teacher. At the end of her first teaching year, she married and relocated in the fall, making it impossible to secure a teaching position for the upcoming school year. She interviewed for and secured a job in the property-casualty insurance field instead, and found that she loved it. Applying her skills as an outstanding communicator and educator, proficient observer and effective evaluator, JoAnna was a natural fit in her new career.

Ms. Moore began her collegiate career at the prestigious Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama; one of the top universities in the South. After earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, she has committed herself to remaining a lifetime learner, continuing to embrace any opportunity to take a course, run a seminar or attend a lecture.

In 1981, Ms. Moore was promoted to a Casualty Field Representative (CFR) with Mercury Insurance Services, LLC.

Ms. Moore was also the first female spokesperson on Mercury's initial TV advertising campaign, appearing in numerous TV commercials and in print media advertisements.

In August of 2013, Ms. Moore resigned from her CCO position in Claims and became an executive consultant, responsible for employee coaching and training at Mercury. This became the launching pad from which she founded her own company, J. Moore Consulting Services (JMC) after she retired from Mercury in 2014.
