Omar Salazar
Agency Owner

I was born and raised right here in El Paso, TX and have 10 years of experience working with insurance.

I’ve always pursued and wanted a career that was rewarding in all aspects of my life. I believe that one of the most rewarding things in life is having the opportunity to help others. I truely enjoy meeting new people every day and l especially love to hear about their stories. Protecting their hard-earned assets and their families’ future is a true privilege and the best part is that I get to do it every single day!

Personally, I love to play golf and I can also play the electric guitar (Blues). More recently I’ve started having a passion for grilling and BBQ. On the weekends I like spending time at home cooking and trying new recipes, that is if I am not golfing. Also, my wife and I do enjoy small getaways to Ruidoso, NM.

Playing the guitar is definitely one of my hidden talents. I’ve been doing it for over 25 years. I sometimes jam with other musicians when I get the opportunity. My guilty pleasure is potato chips. I just love them since I was a child. Cannot seem to shake off the craving for them.

I am a big supporter of the Ronald Mcdonald house, Children’s Hospital, El Paso Humane Society and the First Tee of El Paso.

Shauna Lee
Agency Owner

I was born in Anchorage Alaska. My father was in the military so we found our home in El Paso. I’ve lived here most of my life. My educational background is in finance, I received a degree from New Mexico State University.

When it comes to the insurance world, I have 10 years of experience in the industry and what I love most about my line of work is helping others. My job is not necessarily to ‘sell’. My job is to make sure my clients are secure from financial devastation in case disaster were to strike. My ultimate goal is to be a trusted advisor to my clients.

On a more personal level, I love animals and can’t stop talking about them. My dogs are my children. I also love doing yoga and being outdoors. On the weekends one of my favorite things to do is hiking, spending time with my family, and cooking.

Something I enjoy doing is waking up every morning around 4 am (with no alarm clock ) to take pictures of the sunrise. Some people think it is crazy but for me, it sets the right tone for my day and brings balance to my life.

When it comes to giving back, I am passionate about helping Big Brothers Big Sisters, a big-hearted organization whose goal is to make a positive impact in the lives of at-risk children. I’ve also volunteered with The Children’s Hospital, and Monta Vista Retirement Community

I have worked with Insurance for more than five years and our customers become our family.

I also really enjoy traveling, getting to know different places, cultures, and people. I always like to ask people about the places they have traveled to. To me, it’s fascinating to understand how other people live and I can often get tips on my next vacation spot.

On my weekends I like to spend time with my family and go outdoors. I love four-wheeling in my Jeep and visit new spots I have not been to in my city.

Something people may not know about me is that I actually like to sing. Karaoke is something I really enjoy doing, it all started with my mom who sings in our family reunions almost every weekend.

I really enjoy volunteering for Animal shelters and I am very passionate about animal rights.

Alejandro Arango

I was born in Bogota, Colombia but I grew up in San Diego, California. I moved to El Paso when I was 9 yrs old and attended EPCC studying Business and Accounting.

I’ve been in the insurance business for a total of four years helping many people secure proper coverage. What I love most about this job is that I’m able to help families in the community find the protection they deserve.

Personally, sports, in general, is a subject that I can’t stop talking about. I like playing and watching all major sports. Music is the second thing I enjoy the most. When I’m not at work I like to go to the movies, friends’ house or out with family. I enjoy being as active as possible.

Something people might not know about me is that I can play a couple of instruments such as the violin and piano and chocolate is probably my guilty pleasure.

I’m an active Jehovah’s Witness and I am fully involved in all of their activities.

Jasmine Hidrogo
Agency Consultant

I was born and raised here in El Paso TX. I am a Hanks Knights graduate so my heart lies here in the eastside, but like most people from El Paso, Scenic Drive is my favorite location to appreciate our great city.

When it comes to my experience with insurance, I have worked in the industry for 5+ years and I look forward to many more years servicing the insurance needs of all our clients. The most exciting aspect of my job is seeing families being properly covered when they need it the most. This last year with all the hurricanes in Texas I was filled with joy when I saw that hurricane victims did not have to add insurance worries to their list. I hope to continue to guide clients into preparing for situations like these!

What I enjoy the most in my free time is exploring El Paso and all the local entertainment. El Paso is a growing City and there is so much to explore, from new businesses/restaurants to amazing historical locations. I’m always open to the next adventure El Paso has to offer.

On the weekend you will most likely find me at home relaxing with family and friends. On a sunny day, you can find me anywhere from downtown catching a chihuahuas game to cattleman’s enjoying a hayride. My guilty pleasure that most people will find surprising is that I’m a HUGE Game of Thrones fan!

I volunteer when I can for my brother’s football team, he is a proud Eastwood middle Raider!

Olivia Varela

What most excites me about my role here at Salazar and Lee is to be an Advisor. Being able to take care of loved ones is what I love the most about my job.

Erick Nevarez

I was born in Grand Island, Nebraska and raised in El Paso, Texas most of my life.

I am an Exclusive Financial Specialist, and I have a decade of experience in the Financial and Insurance Industry. As a Financial Specialist, I believe the most important attribute I provide to others is my “Voice”. It is our sole purpose to help others and consult them in some of the most important decision makings of their lives when dealing with financial or protection strategies. (Life Insurance, Retirement, Annuities, etc.)

Being a Trusted Advisor is what I strive for on. It excites me every day to be in a position to make such a positive impact on the lives of my community. I strongly believe in what I do, and to be a voice you can always depend on is the most important contribution I can ever make.

Personally, I truly enjoy meeting new people every day. I love to connect with them and hear their life stories and goals. Protecting their assets and strategizing for their future goals is a true privilege I am honored to be in. Developing a client relationship is the best part of my day in my line of work.

The only Bigger role I play in life is being the Best Father I can possibly be for my children. My Family is what I can’t stop talking about anytime I am away from them. My children are my driving force in life, and anything and everything that we can do as a family to put a smile to their faces are what satisfies me the most as a Loving Father. When the opportunity arises, I love to workout and play basketball amongst other sports. Also, On Weekends my wife and I love to cook or grill and try various new recipes.

My Strong Competitive Nature I have to say is definitely a hidden talent most people don’t get to truly see about me on a daily basis. Even if it is just amongst myself mentally, I find myself making most daily or fun activities a competition. As I consider it to be a guilty pleasure of mine, with the right crowd I have fun when I can show that side of me.

I along with many of my team members in the company love to volunteer events for a great cause. It is in the moments we take pride impacting the community and bringing awareness to others to support our City.

I grew up in El Paso Texas and I worked for the juveniles probation department prior to doing insurance

My experience working with insurance started seven years ago. I went on to follow my criminal justice career when I decided to give insurance another shot. It excites me when. I’m able to educate my clients on their coverages.

I enjoy working out and traveling with my husband whenever I have the opportunity. I love tattoos. It’s a way I like to express myself.

Jazmine Davis
Consumer Advocate

My name is Jazmine, but feel free to call me Jazz. I am 29 years young and I was born and raised right here in El Paso, TX.

I’ve always wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. Therefore, making insurance a career, was an obvious choice. I started very early in my 20s. 21 to be exact and I have been dedicated to helping people ever since.

What most excites me about my job is knowing I am helping to make a difference in my customers’ lives. Working here at Salazar and Lee has taught me so many things, one of the most important being the fact that insurance is not a luxury, it’s a necessity because in a time of need every family needs to have a security blanket to protect their financial freedom

On a more personal note and like every other mother out there, I can talk on and on for hours about my son Eli, (you can ask me at your own risk!) I’m also completely obsessed with my Saint Bernard pup. My favorite way to spend the weekend is with family, ideally, a well-prepared cookout and some good Tequila will do the trick!
