Rhoda Ibarra, CIC, CISR
Commercial Insurance Account Manager
Rhoda began her insurance career as a Marine Cargo Underwriter for a British Insurance Company, Royal Insurance. This made her feel as she was traveling around the world along with the cargo she insured! She moved to the island of Guam and worked as Assistant Manager for Aon Corp for 13 years. Her stay on the island included working for the top three insurance agencies in the US and fulfilled her dream to travel the world. She has visited 27 countries thus far and became a certified PADI licensed scuba diver to not miss the beauty of the ocean that surrounded her while living in Guam.
Upon moving to California, she became Account Manager for G S Levine Insurance in San Diego (now Arthur J Gallagher) for another 13 years. Rhoda joined Strachota Insurance family in May of 2017 bringing along her wealth of experience.
She thoroughly enjoys creating relationships with her clients sharing that she can get an angry client on the phone and when conversations ends, she can “see their smile” over the line. Rhoda candidly admits her brain works like an attorney at times when solving client’s insurance issues.
Outside the office, Rhoda along with her husband both love to travel and enjoy week-long cruises to different parts of the world. She is very close to her nephews and nieces and appreciates technology giving her the ability to joke and tease them since they live in 3 different countries.
