Laurie Miller is the director of employee benefits for Northcentral IL at M3 Insurance. As such, she works closely with other members of the M3 Rockford team to identify and acquire new business, implement go-to-market strategies, and build strong partnerships with key business leaders, insurance companies and community organizations.
Miller serves as a go-to resource for employee benefits program solutions and human resources consulting. She draws on 30+ years of innovative experience in advising clients on the plan design, administration, and strategy of their benefit offerings. Prior to M3, she started her own insurance agency twice.
