Woodyard Insurance Group
Over 10,000 seniors retire in America every month, yet this group remains underserved. At Woodyard Insurance Group, our goal is to give our clients the education needed to make better choices. We strive to give everyone the opportunity to learn and better understand how properly planning your insurance portfolio makes retirement less stressful. We will work with our Seniors and provide them the tools necessary to make the best decisions about their Social Security options, Medicare benefits, Insurance and any kind of retirement planning needs they may have.
Our mission is to provide great service. Our plan is to meet everyone where they are, so we can help them get to where they would like to be in their retirement. Woodyard insurance Group has over 12 years of experience working in the Insurance Industry, but we don’t have all the answers. To better help you, we have partnered with nationally known insurance companies who have been helping clients solve insurance issues for many more years than we can count. With expertise like that on our side, we can guide you though just about any situation. So, when it’s all said and done…
Plan More, Worry Less.

Annuity Planning Professional (APP)
Hi, I’m Marlene. I enjoy working with people and I really enjoy enriching people’s lives. I’m married to a wonderful guy named Greg and between the two of us we have 6 adult children. We’ve got our own “Brady Bunch” crew. My life began in a small rural community on the Island of Jamaica. It’s actually two towns over from where Bob Marley was born. No relations though.
We moved to the US when I was 7 years old. First to Brooklyn then Queens, but the cold weather forced us towards the South where we ended up in Miami. As an adult, I lived in New Jersey then moved to Pennsylvania, then Virginia, and now South Carolina. I worked as a retail manager for 10 years, and I loved it. As time went on, I realized I needed to do more. Now my passion is helping people, especially the Senior population, with their Insurance needs.
I attended Northern Virginia Community College where I studied Business Management. I received my Insurance License in 2007 and have been in that field since then. I enjoyed working with Seniors and soon realized they were a group that was severely underserved. I began focusing most of my energy bringing awareness to how the healthcare system works and providing education on Insurance options.
I received my first designation as an Annuity Planning Professional (APP) in 2012, followed by Long-Term-Care Specialist (CLTC) in 2014, then my Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) designation in 2015. With every client I meet, my main goal is to leave them and their families better off than when I found them. My purpose in this career is to have a positive impact on the lives of people who put their trust in me. Long ago I was taught that everyone has a calling, mine is helping people manage life’s challenges through having the right plan in place. That is what makes this job so important to me.
