This month’s Dish features Tatiana Ritter, an Account Manager here at JA Benefits.

Delivering synergistic solutions in every interaction with her clients is Tatiana’s ultimate goal. She got started in the benefits arena while in the Human Resources field and due to her love of people, all her jobs have revolved around service and helping others.

In her free time, Tatiana enjoys her busy home – with two children, three dogs and a cat and her husband, she is constantly on the go. They love to be outdoors in the woods or in the backyard playing baseball.
