Kara DeStefano, LUTCF

Vice President, New Business

Kara earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Assumption College, Worcester, MA. In 2002, she began her career in financial services with MetLife. Her primary role was as Marketing Director, but she was fortunate to be exposed to many sides of the business over six years. The wholistic view of managing an agency set an strong foundation for what was to come next.  In 2007, an opportunity to build a scratch General Agency with The Guardian was presented. Kara joined General Agent Gary DeStefano and together they built Living Legacy Financial Group, Inc. Her primary roles were in Marketing and Finance, but along the way she wore any hat she needed to and embraced all aspects of building a business from scratch – including licensing, training, underwriting, case management, illustration design, and contract management.

Kara has been recognized as a Leader’s Club Qualifier, and as a recipient of the Presidential Citation Award at the Agency Development Award level. In addition, she was a course moderator for The American College, and has earned the designation of LUTCF (Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow) through The American College. Kara holds a Series 6 , as well as Life, Accident, Health insurance license in MA. She is a Registered Representative with Park Avenue Securities and a Financial Representative of Guardian.

Kara and her fiancé, Corey, reside in Amesbury with their daughter, Hailey Marie, son, Freddie, and their fur-child, Stella.
