My father taught me that in order for one person to be of any help to others he must be both able and willing. My career and this agency are based on that foundation.
I have wanted to help for as long as I can remember. Whether it was delivering newspapers as a boy or working as a nurse assistant through school, I was satisfied knowing I was making a difference in someone’s day – no matter how small. After beginning at University of Kentucky and graduating with honors from Ohio University in Athens, I spent nearly 9 years trying to help as a nursing home administrator.
During my time in nursing home administration, I learned first-hand the importance of planning and watched helplessly as financial hardship overtook families. This became more frustrating as I learned how the most basic of planning could have helped prevent much of the turmoil. In most cases, the lesson was learned too late. Worse yet, I saw patients forgo care due to the dread of cost. I learned that improper planning often affects physical health as well as financial health. And often people with the best of intentions still found themselves unprepared.
Planning for any unknown is an intimidating task. The amount of information available is overwhelming, and any cursory search will quickly find you countless agents and organizations who are willing to help. But how can you tell if they are able? Helping others through this process lead me to become an insurance professional myself.
In 2006, I began my career as an insurance agent. Since that time, my wife and I have been blessed with 2 children. As Vice President of Sales I monitor the Medicare and health insurance markets nationwide so that we are able to provide you with solutions that will be as strong tomorrow as they are today. I also provide our agent partners and staff with the necessary tools and training so they are able to develop plans able to fit your personal situation. You can be confident the Venture Insurance Group Group is both able and willing to serve your Medicare and health insurance needs.

I started my career in health insurance in 2016. Prior to that, I obtained my teaching degree and Masters at Oakland University. I was an elementary school teacher for over 6 years before I decided to stay at home with my little ones. When I left my teaching career, we lost my teachers insurance and had to buy it through the ACA. As my husband is a self-employed business owner. It was when our 4th child was born that we had an insurance problem. There was a mess up on our insurance that I had to appeal to try and get resolved. It was during the appeal process that I was certain I wanted to do this as a career to help others that could be in a similar situation. I love learning new information and try to learn as much as I can. You can feel confident that I will do my best to help you.
My husband and I have been blessed with 4 beautiful kids. We have 3 boys and 1 girl. I am truly happy that I am able to help people with their insurance concerns. I am here to help you navigate through Medicare and all your health insurance needs.

With more than 25 years in financial services, Al Acitelli has helped many families plan for income in retirement. His vast industry experience has helped him become one of the most knowledgeable agents on senior health issues with Medicare and Medicaid. Over the years, he has spoken before thousands of people at seminars and conventions.
Before joining Venture Insurance Group, Al started and owned a title insurance company, commercial real estate mortgage brokerage and credit reporting agency that earned the Inc. 500 designation. He has also obtained his MBA in finance.
Al believes that when one retires from work, he or she should retire from risk, so he has chosen not to offer products that have variable returns, meaning they can lose principal or go down with the market. One of the best compliments he ever received from a client is that he is "compulsively meticulous" in researching and compiling appropriate plans.
Al lives in Howell with his wife and has three daughters, a son and five grandchildren. Cooper the Shih Tzu is the latest addition to the family.
