I have been in the insurance industry for 3 years. I was previously an Agency Manager for 2 years and decided to make the jump to the Benefits side of the business.

I grew up just south of Springfield in Ozark, Missouri. I attended college in Warrensburg, MO at the University of Central Missouri on a full-ride basketball scholarship.

My daily activities on the job include meeting with businesses and their employees and putting together benefit packages for them. It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to help minimize a client’s out-of-pocket medical expenses in a variety of different ways.

On a more personal note, I really enjoy music – more specifically, live music. My genre choice has a very, very wide range. I’m also a St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas Jayhawks Fanatic.

You can find me out with friends or at concerts when I am not at work. I am a Big Brother through the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program. My Little and I are always out and about looking for new experiences. I love volunteering for BBBS of Greater KC and am also a member of the KVC Health Systems Young Advisory Board.

Agency Manager – Omaha

Email – (402) 289-0533

I have been in the insurance industry for 10 years. I spent 6 years as an agent before joining Modern Consulting in 2014. I’m devoted to helping protect clients financially, whether it be from a home claim or the death of a loved one.

I grew up on the south side of Chicago but came to Omaha to pursue my undergraduate degree from Creighton. I fell in love with Omaha and decided to make it my home!

What most excites me about my work with Modern Consulting is the ability I have to protect families from the unknowable. There are only so many things we can prepare for in life and it gives me joy knowing that I can provide a shelter in the darkest of times.

When I’m not at work, I’m usually traveling the world with my husband! I am an animal lover and advocate. I also spend my time reading and continuing my education!

I bring 10 years of insurance and financial services experience to Modern Consulting, Inc. 4 of those years have been with the agency.

I grew up in a small town in South Dakota and attended college in Sioux Falls, SD. In 2012 I moved to Omaha.

The most rewarding part of my role in the agency is the opportunity to provide peace of mind and educate prospective and current clients every day.

I really enjoy spending quality time with my family and traveling with them. I am a proud husband and father of two. I enjoy all things sports, especially college football, and also like to cook.

An interest that many of our customers may not be aware of is the fact that my favorite college football team is the Florida State Seminoles. Not the Huskers, unfortunately.

My family and I are active in our local church and numerous other causes throughout the community.

I grew up in the Omaha area and graduated from Creighton University here in Omaha, Nebraska.

The most exciting thing about my work is assisting people with their insurance needs. I have over 25 years of experience in the insurance industry.

Personally, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog, Sausage. On the weekends I also enjoy seeing plays, movies and other forms of entertainment.

Jeff Riesberg


Financial Specialist – Omaha

Email – (402) 289-0533

I have been in the finance industry for over 12 years, serving people who are just starting out, as well as high net worth individuals. I have been involved with everything from investments, life insurance, long term care and disability insurance to estate management.

I grew up in Carroll, IA and joined the US Navy Seabees where I served for 5 years. After I got out, I began working as a financial advisor. I thoroughly enjoy helping people achieve their dreams! I also enjoy helping people set up the best retirement plan so they can take comfort in enjoying the best life has in store. Every person I work with is looking for three common things: safety, income and growth.

I have 5 kids and love spending time with them, as well as my wife, of course! I enjoy sports, especially baseball and football. I also spend a lot of time with kids’ sports.

Something people might not know about me is that I am very good with cabinetry and enjoy making my own furniture. I also like to volunteer quite a bit of time as president of the Catholic Professional and Business Club.

Lewis L Maggett II


Sales Staff Agent – Omaha

Email – (402) 289-0533

 

Born and raised in Omaha, NE. I received my high school diploma from Omaha North high school. After high school, I was awarded the opportunity to continue my education at Creighton University on a prestigious academic scholarship where I earned a B.S.B.A. in Business Administration.

From a very young age, I had interests in entrepreneurship and sports. I believe that having a sports background has helped me pursue a successful career in sales.

I bring to our team here at Modern Consulting three years of experience in the insurance industry. My career began as a staff producer acquiring my property, casualty and life licenses in NE and IA. After two years, I was able to gather essential experience to perform successfully as a producer and build relationships with my clientele. After a one year term as an Agent Owner, I felt that I could add value to the customer experience by focusing on my one true passion which is selling and building customer relationships versus administrative/financial considerations of Agency ownership. My new role with Modern Consulting has given me the opportunity to do just that: build upon a well-established agency as if it were my own, and focus on retention and growth. I look forward to many years to come as an insurer and a Modern Consulting employee.

My new role with Modern Consulting has given me the opportunity to do just that: build upon a well-established agency as if it were my own, and focus on retention and growth. I look forward to many years to come as an insurer and a Modern Consulting employee.

My role as a staff agent is a critical one. Not only from an operational perspective but strategically, as well. I feel I can implement our Agency Owner’s vision for Modern Consulting, Inc. and carry out a customer-centered focus. My co-workers and customers are what makes being in this business of insurance so fulfilling because it truly is an integration of everyone’s combined efforts and talents. I also enjoy interacting with my clients on a daily basis and hearing their personal stories regarding work and family. Having clients open up to you on a personal level, allowing you to connect and be relatable, is what being their trusted advisor is all about.

I have a variety of interests which range from golfing to karaoke and from fishing to traveling when ever I can. To unwind, my wife and I enjoy date night which usually includes dinner and dancing, and maybe even a movie, too. Additionally, I still enjoy friendships which have lasted since childhood, so an occasional guys’ night out is not unheard of.  Even though my father is an independent contractor, I don’t have a construction bone in my body. But I do enjoy watching HG network with home remodeling shows and do it yourself shows. Afterwards, I try things and it’s always a disaster according to Jennifer, my wife.

When it comes to volunteering, I think its everyone’s responsibility to give back and ‘pay it forward’, as the saying goes. I grew up in the inner city, amongst high crime and violence. So my focus is being a role model and advocate for youth in regards to education and good life decision-making.

I grew up in Kansas but have lived all over the country. Born in Texas, I’ve lived in Tennessee, Virginia, and California, to name a few.

I was raised in the insurance business. My grandpa was an agent, my dad is an agent, and it’s been my lifeblood for many years! I love helping people and informing them of the insurance world. I try to make it as easy as possible for our clients, as I know many people do not understand or enjoy insurance.

Being a mother is what I love! My husband and I welcomed our baby boy into the world almost two years ago, and he is the light of our lives! On the weekends we love to spend time together playing in the yard or hanging out with our family.

Originally from Kansas City, I moved around several times when I was younger. I eventually settled back into Kansas and finished my education at the University of Kansas.

I joined the insurance industry in March of 2016. The experience and knowledge I have gained since joining the amazing team at Modern Consulting is what drives me. I also enjoy the opportunity to educate and help our customers whenever possible.

When it comes to personal hobbies, anything sports is at the top of my list. I enjoy going to a Royals or Chiefs game, or really anything else that means being outside.

New business agent – Shawnee

I previously sold Life & Health insurance, and in addition to recently renewing my agent licenses I also obtained my P&C license.

I grew up in Savannah, MO and went to college at Kansas State University for business management with an emphasis on entrepreneurship.

At my job, I enjoy being able to help people when they are in need.

When I’m not working, I’m usually spending time with family, playing golf, or watching sports. I am a huge sports fan, especially K-State, the Royals and the Chiefs.

Something people might not know about me is the fact that I know how to juggle and have a few magic tricks up my sleeve that I like to use to entertain kids.

I’m passionate about volunteering to help children and I actively participate in the Food 4 Kids program. I also volunteer as a mentor for kids through my church, as well as with Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

Agency Manager – Shawnee

I’ve had the privilege of working with Tim at Modern Consulting Inc since 2011. During this time, I’ve had the opportunity to experience different positions within the agency and grow professionally. As a former accountant (for 17 years), I created financial statements that helped companies make decisions. Now I use that experience and expertise to help families make decisions to protect what they hold so dear.

I grew up in Olathe, KS and have recently married my dear, sweet Susanne. We just purchased a home in west Olathe and look forward to hosting! If you’re in the area, stop in for some coffee!

What most excites me about my work is getting to know my clients and helping them understand what insurance means to them and how to avoid the dreaded “R” word, REGRET. One of my favorite quotes is: “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”  Alan Lakein. Very true!!

My passion is my family and friends. When I am with them and a part of their lives, all is well in the world.

When I’m not working, I’m usually watching an epic movie eating some nachos and popcorn. I also enjoy going to live sporting events. GO Royals, Chiefs, KU, K-State and Sporting KC! I also play soccer, golf and tennis to keep my heart-rate up!

Most of my customers don’t know that I love children. I’m a proud father of five and grandfather of two! I have been a foster parent, soccer coach and in the past few years been a part of the Boys & Girls Club of KC. This is a great organization that really impacts kids’ lives. Come join me at the next volunteer opportunity, it’s a lot of fun. Ask me how!

Agency Manager – Wichita

Email – (316) 681-2120

I grew up in Wichita and graduated from West High School. Since then, I have furthered my education through Cowley College and Wichita State University.

Being an Agency Manager with Modern Consulting since 2015, I must say that there is nothing better than working closely with our clients to ensure their current needs are protected and help guide their plans for an early retirement.

I am also the proud father of two amazing young ladies. On the weekends you may find me with our kids on the tennis courts, playing music, or skiing in Colorado.

Something people might not know about me is the fact that I love playing guitar and have been playing since childhood. I am also learning to play the piano.

I’m an active volunteer with the American Red Cross and a member of their philanthropy committee.

I was born in El Paso, TX but moved to Wichita when I was 5 years old and have lived here ever since. I graduated from North High School.

Having been in the insurance industry for 3 years, I can definitely say that I love what I do, day in and day out. I enjoy being able to make sure our clients are covered when they need it the most and guiding them through the hard times.

When I’m not in the office, I love to spend time with my family. I have 2 kids, a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old daughter. Any time I can spend with them is time well spent! I am also a huge soccer (FC Barcelona) & Football (Dallas Cowboys) fan. On the weekends, you can find me and the family at the pool or in the park.
