I was born, and currently reside, in New Bedford, MA. I began my Insurance career here at Paul Murphy Insurance in January of 2009. When I began working at the agency, I was residing in the greater Boston area and taking classes through Northeastern University. I began writing and reviewing personal auto policies, which later expanded into other aspects of personal lines insurance including homeowners and dwelling fire policies, umbrella policies, boat insurance and personal article floaters. Over the years, I have acquired professional designations in both personal lines as well as commercial lines insurance. I have been involved in book rolls as well as the integration of several new insurance companies into this office. Although I now concentrate more in the Commercial lines area of the business, personal lines insurance is still an integral part of my day to day operations.

As an industry, the products and availability of the insurance companies are constantly evolving, we as insurance professionals are tasked with keeping up with the times. There is never a dull moment in this industry and I welcome this challenge. It is exciting to be able to speak to our customers and explain the changes that are taking place all while being able to offer different products to fit their evolving needs. When I first began at this office, I viewed my original position in the agency as a job, but now take it on as my career. I look forward to the years to come here at Paul Murphy Insurance Agency!

I was born and raised in the Berkshires and made my way to the Greater Boston area while attending UMASS Lowell. After earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Management, I started my career within the insurance industry at Safety Insurance in downtown Boston. Throughout my career, my experience has primarily focused on personal line accounts. I recently decided to move from the corporate side of insurance to the agency level, in order to round out my insurance expertise. I joined Paul Murphy Insurance Agency in June of 2017 and I’ve been fortunate to continue developing my career within the insurance industry; taking my corporate experience to an agency setting.

TESTIMONIALS

What People Say

  • When I called the staff at Paul T. Murphy Insurance, they explained how auto reform would allow me to increase coverage and save money at the same time. I moved my home and umbrella insurance to my current auto carrier and saved over $350. In July 2008 when my auto insurance renews with Safety Insurance, I will save another $300 just for having my auto and home insurance with the same company. The staff at Paul T Murphy Insurance Agency really understands the new Massachusetts reform and how to pass savings and additional coverage to their clients.

  • After many years of doing business with the Paul T. Murphy Insurance Agency, I am thrilled to learn of this relationship with Northrup to service the Lynnfield area. I have trusted both my personal and business policies with Paul and have never received less than the best of service. I like the face that they service as professionals but treat you like a friend. Recently during a complicated Workers Comp claim, Paul showed up to walk me through what I thought would be a mess of paperwork and confusion – the personalized service I receive spoke volumes. I have never gotten service like that from anyone else. I also like the fact that they are always ready to save me money without ever compromising my coverage.

  • One of the best business and personal decisions I ever made was to collaborate with Paul Murphy Insurance Company for our families insurance needs. Starting with our business policies, then eventually all of our personal policies, we have slowly transitioned all to be managed by PMI. Many companies loosely tout that they treat you as one of the family; PMI proves it in their actions. We are glad we are part of their family.
