Meet A Local Insurance Expert

Penelope Simpson
Account Executive - Insurance Broker



I am licensed in the following provinces and I am here to help you.

Alberta | Saskatchewan | British Columbia 

Help me understand your needs to get you the right insurance.

I have worked in commercial insurance since being hired by Western Financial Group in 2012 (then Falkins Insurance). Previous to my time in insurance I obtained a Bachelor of Science with Distinction in Geography from the University of Victoria. Upon finishing University in a recession & having no prospective careers I went backpacking in South America. When I returned to Canada, I briefly did taxes and then attended Sauder School of Business in the Diploma of Accounting Program. After completing two thirds of the program, I moved to Fernie BC & landed in my current profession. I bring a unique perspective to insurance being well versed on environmental hazards & is considerate of profit and expenses for each business I work with.

I offer an honest and transparent explanation of misunderstood coverages and offer options to fit all clients needs. While working in the Kootenays, I have worked diligently to develop long standing relationships with established and new organizations.

My clients include builders, contractors, hospitality, developers, not for profits/charities, landlords, sports & fitness outfits, golf courses, short term rentals, stratas/condos, retailers, utility providers, campgrounds, farms, resorts, pharmacies, medical clinics & more.

I am currently licensed for risks in BC & Alberta, although I should have Saskatchewan soon. When I am not working I can be found traveling the globe with my husband & son, mountain biking, snowboarding, cheering on my son at hockey (or soccer) games, gardening, cooking, running, camping or doing yoga.

Did you know Canadians don’t often review their insurance needs? Contact me to discuss your coverages.
