  • Welcome Catherine!

    Posted on September 27, 2018

    Acadia Benefits is excited to announce the addition of Catherine Desrochers to our team as a Large Group Account Manager. Catherine brings over 15 years of experience in the employee benefits field having worked on both the carrier and brokerage side of the industry.

    Why did you join the Acadia Benefits Team?
    “I have long admired Acadia Benefits and their reputation has always been superior. In a world of constant change, it is impressive not only how many long- term customers they have, but also how long most employees have been there. They are clearly doing many things right and I am honored to be a part of that.”

    What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
    “I love to cook and entertain, so to ‘balance the effects of that’ I enjoy many physical activities, especially jogging with my dog and cardio kickboxing…I even have my own boxing gloves! My husband, two kids and I do a lot as a family, whether that be activities outside (skiing, hiking, time on the lake) or just relaxing and watching a movie.”

  • Summer Gazpacho Recipe

    Posted on September 5, 2018

    Summer Gazpacho

    Recipe provided by Sara Pinto


    This gazpacho recipe is something I have “cooked” for many years and be warned… It makes a lot!  So invite your friends over on a hot night and enjoy.  It requires some chopping and stirring (it’s easy) and you can serve as an appetizer or main dish (it’s versatile).  Serve cold with avocado and tortilla chips.



    1 red onion

    4 garlic cloves

    1 European cucumber, seeds removed

    5 plum tomatoes

    2 red peppers, seeds and core removed

    3 cups tomato juice

    1/4 cup olive oil

    1/4 cup vinegar (white or white wine will work best)

    1/2 tablespoon salt

    1 teaspoon black pepper


    Roughly chop all vegetables.  Pulse each vegetable individually in a food processor or finely chop by hand into small, bite size pieces.  Add all vegetables to a large bowl with tomato juice, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Stir, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 12 hours.
