Scott Vitebskiy

Financial Advisor

As a New York Life Agent, I sincerely believe that most people want to do what's right: right for themselves, right for their families, and right for their communities.  In fact, that's one of the reasons I joined the company back in 2011.  After 5 years working as a Vacation Coordinator in the Hospitality Industry, I wanted the opportunity to work somewhere that made it easy for other people to do what was right, and more importantly, made it easy for me to do right by them.

Depending on your needs, I can introduce you to some ways to help protect your family's lifestyle and future; or prepare for major financial events such as paying for college, saving for retirement, or caring for an aging relative.  If you're wondering about my qualifications, you might find it reassuring to know that I am a licensed agent to sell insurance through New York Life Insurance Company.  In addition to my many years of experience, I hold a Bachelor's Degree from California State University Fullerton and have participated in New York Life's well-known training program, NYLIC University.  Of course, my background isn't really the one that matters. To be the best possible agent, I've found that getting to know my clients – their hopes, dreams and goals for the future – is the most important first step.  So if you're looking for someone that's ready to put their expertise and experience to work for you, please let me know.
