When Savings Insurance Agency owner Amy Braun accepted a job at a small insurance agency in Louisiana following high school graduation, she never dreamed where it would take her. Although her stay at that agency was brief, it began her lifelong passion to serve people and pursue a career in an industry that would allow her to do so.
A few short years later Amy found herself at home in the Upper Peninsula raising four children and running a busy household, yet she never lost her sight of her goal and eventually earned a college degree in business. While Amy would not deny that this education gave her invaluable training, she has often quipped, “there is nothing like raising family and managing a home to prepare one to become a business owner.”
For 11 years Amy worked under and learned from her mentor, William “Bill” Hentschell, Jr., owner and agent at the Savings Agency in downtown Manistique. Like his father before him, William Hentschell, Sr., had handed the agency over to his son in 1986, and Bill, Jr., was proud to carry on the family business – a legacy established in 1917. It was a great honor for Amy to purchase the Savings Insurance Agency in 2010, not only to become a part of its history, but also to serve the people and community of Manistique.
