Stuart Monte LUTCF RICP
I am Stuart Monte, I was born and raised all of my life in Lafayette; with the exception of 10 years in Houston, TX. I graduated from Lafayette High School in 1980. I attended USL from 1980 to 1984 and majored in finance. I joined the Army reserve in 1985 and served until 1993 as a medical corpsman during “Operation Desert Storm”. I then joined Acadian Ambulance in 1984 and went through Paramedic school from 1985 to 1987 and became a national board-certified paramedic until my deployment during Desert Storm. I received my state license as a life insurance agent in 1988 but was part time until 1993. I then enrolled in the American College in 1994. I attained my LUTCF in 1998 and my RICP in 2019.
I have been happily married for 37 years to my bride, Valarie. She has blessed me with four outstanding children who have given me 5 wonderful grandchildren. My passion is my family! I am your Acadiana neighbor who loves to help and make a difference in them and their livelihood; whether helping with a physical project or any worthwhile project. My motto is love life, add value, and play hard.
Medicare / Life Insurance Specialist
I am DeAnn Samuel; Born and raised in Texas, I now reside in Lafayette, Louisiana for the last 8 years. After earning an Associate of Applied Science from Lamar State College in Orange, Texas in 2002, I found myself pursuing various business opportunities over the years. Through those many experiences I’ve learned to listen to customers’ needs and help them accomplish goals. Showing people unique options to invest back into themselves and offer them ways to take care of their family and reach financial milestones during retirement is my new found passion.
In my spare time I enjoy spending it with my husband of 20 years, 3 children, and 2 dogs. But my favorite pastime is making memories with my family at the “happiest place on earth”, Walt Disney World.
