Nicole Gaytan

Operations Director


Hello, My name is Nicole Gaytan.  I am born and raised in the San Antonio surrounding area and a married mother of two amazing children. My career first started in the medical field, doing medical billing and coding, working in doctor’s offices and hospitals, and even working with health insurance companies such as Humana and Aetna. After 20 years in the medical field, I was ready for a change. In 2013, I entered the insurance industry as a Licensed Servicing Assistant and now as Director of Operations, my role is to ensure smooth implementation of insurance and client service needs along with day to day back-office work.  In my spare time, I really enjoy watching movies and I am an avid Harry Potter fan.

Joseph Bellamy

Agent


My name is Joseph T. Bellamy II and I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. I come from a big family beginning with my grandparents who raised 8 kids. I am a middle child to two brothers and I have a 7-year-old daughter name Estelle who has added a new level of energy to my life.

I graduated from John Jay High School and attended Northwest Vista College where I worked towards a degree in business management. I played various sports going back to elementary school intramurals all through to my senior year. Basketball being my primary sport.

Over the past 15 years I have worked in consumer and merchant fraud for Netspend/TSYS Corp. and USAA. My work involved identifying patterns of high dollar fraud (activity) between clients and merchants. This required building relationships with the two to uncover where fraud or possible misappropriation of funds took place. I continued my education in banking regulations through leadership and mentor programs that allowed me to oversee a team that focused on international banking.

I joined New York Life Insurance Company 3 years ago to continue my career in financial services with a focus on holistic planning. As a father to a child with ASD, I've recently included special needs and estate planning into my practice and I have made wonderful connections doing so. Continued education through Kaplan and American College courses has also allowed me to obtain additional certifications that build on my strengths and the opportunity to be the best resource.
