September Ambassador Spotlight
Meet Luke Breard
Occupation: Account Executive
Organization: Vantage Health Plan
When and why did you get involved with BRAC?
I joined BRAC early this year because I love Baton Rouge and I wanted to network with others working for the good of the city.
Tell us more about how you are involved in Baton Rouge?
Have you ever felt overwhelmed thinking about your health insurance? Simply put, I help local business owners, individuals, and seniors understand their health insurance. Additionally, I serve alongside local insurance agents on the board for the Baton Rouge Association of Health Underwriters (BRAHU). Like BRAC, our organization is very collaborative as we seek what’s best for each client and provide ongoing education to them as healthcare evolves.
Why do you stay involved with BRAC?
First, it’s a lot of fun! You’re engaging community leaders and business owners who love where they live and help make the city a better place.
What would you tell someone considering becoming a BRAC investor?
We’re building a vibrant, diverse, and desirable city. Come enjoy with us. There is a spot for everyone.
What do you see for the future of Baton Rouge? How will we get there?
I think Baton Rouge’s cultural identity will keep strengthening and the region will stick with those who visit and reside here. Someone once said, “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up men and women to gather wood and give orders. Teach them to long for the vast and endless sea.” Baton Rouge needs people to see past whatever immediate baggage comes to mind and instead find creative ways to engage their passions for the good of the city.
What’s one of the most exciting things you see happening in the Baton Rouge Area today?
I absolutely love seeing the development along Government Street in Mid City. You’re seeing new waves of businesses like the neighborhood wine store Mid City Craft Wine and Brew, White Star Market, and the Electric Depot coming very soon. It’s exciting to watch Mid City attract and sustain so many new concepts and developments.
