Sam Wheeless

Client Manager

Early years: Down on the farm 

Born and raised in Maryland, Sam has lived in Baltimore and Monkton, where she grew up on a horse farm. Ah, the days of swimming and horseback riding! Don't fool yourself, though. The two sports take a lot of discipline and commitment, which Sam put to good use during her Business Management studies at Loyola University. As if that wasn't enough of a workload, this go-getter also seamlessly juggled college life and earning her BAA with work as a manager at a Mexican restaurant! ĦAy, caramba!

What we know about Sam: Her interests get interesting! 

Prior to joining EBS, Sam was an account manager at The Warner Companies. She is an animal lover who volunteers at Baltimore County Animal Services. Sam loves memoirs (especially those written by David Sedaris). Not enough for you? She also makes a mean veal marsala! Sam enjoys cooking, trying out new restaurants, hiking and going to Spin class. Her love of high heels sends her tall frame into the clouds! Just don't talk to her before she's had her morning diet coke - Sam is so not a morning person!

Harry Driscoll

Client Advisor

Early Years: King for a day

Harry grew up in Tuckerton, New Jersey.  That's the Situation. Although his fellow Shoreheads sprayed on tans and muscled up at the gym, Harry preferred a gentler lifestyle. At Pinelands Regional High School, he made the National Honor Society, read the Bible, and played baseball all four years, becoming team captain his senior year. Harry was pretty studly, too. His fellow classmates voted him Homecoming King his senior year (his very own cousin was the queen)! How did he follow that act? "I went to Stockton State College in Pomona New Jersey, where I played NCAA Division III baseball, was team captain and MVP my senior year, and graduated with a BA in Accounting."  Home run, Harry!

What we know about Harry: Play your cards right, son

Remember that lull after graduation? Here's where Harry excelled as a Jersey man - he worked the casinos as a Blackjack and baccarat dealer! But after two years playing his hand, a call from a childhood friend in Maryland changed his course. "I came down to meet with him, liked his job as a mobile automotive paint technician, moved here, and worked for that same company for four years." He then went out on his own full time before moving on to Moody Insurance, where he learned the P&C biz from scratch. Harry is married to Sharon, whom he met while attending college. "Bless her heart, she has stayed with me all these years. We have two teenaged kids, Samuel and Katie, who seem to have inherited their mom's intelligence!"

Fun Facts

Music In His Soul:  I serve on my Church worship team as a backup rhythm guitar player. I also like to jam out at home and I sing loud (my poor wife and kids)!

He's Devoted: I became a born again Christian when I moved to Maryland and do my best to read verses to my wife and kids and pray for them every day. We're proud members of Fredericktowne Baptist Church in Walkersville, Md.   

Chip Off The 'Ol Block? I really like to play golf but my 17-year-old son can beat me by more than 10 shots - every time. Pretty disheartening!

Kelli Argo

Client Care Manager

Early Years:

Born in Maryland, Kelli is the oldest of three sisters. Always one to stay active, this kid sashayed her way into dance class at age five and kept dancing for 10 years! Kelli also played high school softball and, later, actively sought out adventure by studying abroad in Spain for three wonderful months while a student at the University of Delaware.

What we know about Kelli

After college, Kelli embarked on a career as a reporter for a weekly paper in Dover, Delaware. It took her just three years to realize the small salary wasn't going to cut it forever. After bartending to pay off debts, she ditched the booze and became dazzled by the world of insurance. "For seven years, I worked for State Farm and, as cheesy as it sounds, I really became that good neighbor my clients could count on."

After working as a benefits advisor and training specialist for KELLY, she joined EBS in early 2017. "For the first time ever, I feel like I've found my forever work home. I look forward to servicing our clients and helping our team grow the business for years to come." Aw, shucks. We feel the same way!

Fun Facts

Good Fake! One night, I asked this guy Eric to be my pretend boyfriend to keep a creepy older gentleman from hitting on me at a bar. It became pretty obvious he wasn't actually my boyfriend when we later exchanged numbers! No matter. The pretend boyfriend is now my husband!

Ok . . . Another Good Fake! I have a tiny tattoo on my foot, but my decision to get one was far from spontaneous. I wore a fake tattoo for a week to make sure I liked it first.

Getting Real. I am obsessed with being a mom. I never knew I could love a person so much. Madison "Maddie" has my heart! Eric - don't be jealous!

Just No. I am far from a picky eater but strongly dislike peas. They are gross.

Erin Keeler

Client Advisor

Early years

Erin grew up in the small coastal town of Mashpee, Massachusetts on the island of Cape Cod. Growing up as middle child between two brothers helped shape the determined personality she holds today. Growing up with a love of winter sports Erin decided to head north to a small state college in the mountains of Vermont.

What we know about Erin

Upon graduation, Erin jumped right into the insurance industry as a group rep for the top disability carrier known as UNUM. After 10+ years as a wholesale group rep, Erin decided to take a leap and start her own business. After many years of managing her own employee benefits firm Erin decided to join the EBS team in 2013 to take advantage of all the services, tools and resources that are now required to stay a front runner in this ever changing industry. With now close to 20 years experience, Erin's clients say her attention to detail, industry experience along with a strong ability to deliver solid solutions are most important to them when managing their benefits program. Erin truly enjoys helping her clients with all aspects of their benefits. As part of the EBS team she is very excited over the opportunity of growing our presence in Eastern NC.

She kills it at the mic. I'm an undiscovered local Karaoke celebrity.

She has a Swede tooth. I eat on average 3,450 Swedish Fish per year.
