Mandy Ferris began her future with Northwestern Mutual in October 2013, and is both proud and delighted to be part of our team. Before starting to work for NM she worked with a pain management clinic for 8 years as a medical assistant, where she acted as an empathetic liaison to the patient, and coordinated their care between their doctors and their insurance companies. This experience made her increasingly aware of the value and importance of planning financially for one’s future. Mandy is a true Texan, born and raised in Dallas, she’s also an avid Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, and Dallas Cowboys fan, and in her leisure time she loves to travel, cook, and spend time with friends.
