Meet the Team

Antonio Ortiz

President

I was born in Mexico and moved to Chicago, Illinois when I was eleven years old. I later moved to New Orleans to go to Loyola University and I fell so in love with the city that I did not return to Chicago.

I love providing insurance services because I know that I am helping people protect their belongings or their lives. In 1989, I started selling life insurance by going house-to-house. After that, I worked for other life insurance companies. On March 4, 2004, I opened Gama Insurance Agency, LLC and we are here helping and providing services.

I help people protect their belongings through policies such as auto, home, business, life, and more. I love to serve people and do my job my gaining people’s trust. I love motivating people, especially the younger generation because they are our future.

Most people do not know that I was a very good soccer player who went to college on a soccer scholarship. Outside of work, I spend my time with my family and participate in motivational seminars for younger people.

I grew up in New York City. I am an Insurance Producer and I also do car plates for vehicles in our office. I am a bilingual speaker. I am very focused on helping our clients with their needs. I have been in customer service for more than twenty years and I love what I do. I started my experience in this industry as an employee in the file room and now I am the office manager. It took me a while to have my producer license, but I never gave up. I love helping customers and giving them the best service possible. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them find the best insurance options. I love that in this business you can start small but if you put your best work forward, you can grow and accomplish a lot.

I am very family-oriented and being surrounded by my loved ones. I enjoy helping anyone in need, including my friends, family members, or even people that I might now personally know.

If I am not working, I am home reading and spending time with God by reading His word.

Karla Moncada

Customer Service Rep

I was born in Louisiana and in the seventh grade, I moved away to North Carolina and have lived here since then. I have been with Gama for 3 years. My purpose here is to deal with each customer’s insurance needs. I handle quotes, endorsements, or even if they just need to vent – I believe a smile can change anyone’s day! I love being able to talk to different people every day and sometimes within just five minutes, I can feel like family or like I’ve known that customer forever.

In my spare time, I enjoy doing crafts. If you can name it, I can make it. I also enjoy cooking authentic food from different countries and showing my family the different flavors from around the world. After all, Latinos are all about flavor!

When I’m not at work, you can find me either running errands, thinking of the next D.I.Y. project or about what I can cook next.

Kerlyn Canales

I am from Honduras. In 2006, I moved to the United States and started school in the city of New Orleans. I graduated from high school as a certified nursing assistant. I am a bilingual speaker.

I started working in the insurance industry about 7 months ago. I enjoy everything about it. One of the great things about the insurance industry is that you do not have to have a specific educational background or set of work experiences to be able to a great job. While many roles do have an element of independence, an insurance career often calls for frequent client interaction, teamwork, and networking.

There is a lot of opportunity to learn and grow within this industry. Since the insurance industry welcomes candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds, there’s a heavy emphasis on training and development, both in terms of onboarding and continual learning. I really enjoy the frequent client interaction and also the teamwork that it takes to get the job done. It feels very nice to see that I am able to help the client and have them leave with a happy smile.

When I am not working, I spend my time at church worshiping God. I volunteer at the church that I attend as a Sunday school teacher for the children and also help with the group of ushers.
