Rachael L. Gonsalves, AAI, AAI-M, CISR

I was born and raised in the south end of New Bedford, just a walk away from the ocean. I can remember walking on the hurricane dike as a kid before the Harbor Walk was created. I have been in the insurance industry since I was 19 years old. Starting out as just a file clerk in a small insurance agency, then moving to personal lines and onto commercial lines. What excites me most about my work is being able to put together the best insurance program to meet the client’s needs.

Personally, I enjoy working out, it is the way that I relieve stress, whether it be strength training, HIIT, indoor cycling, or yoga. I love music! I listen to music more than I watch television, it has been a huge part of my life since I was a young child. In the summertime, you will find me at the beach, on a nice fall day you might find me hiking or just walking outside, and in the winter cuddled up on the couch with my dogs watching a good movie! I also believe in contributing to programs for our community’s youth – you know, just doing my part!
