Nicholas Murch

Executive Officer

Principle Broker-HCAG Medicare Insurance Agency

Mr. Murch started his career in litigation support management in 1989. He worked in multiple management and leadership positions in his 20 years in the field. His main objective was creating work flow models and structuring hos offices to maximize profitability as well as creating new revenue streams. He oversaw 65 employees and several hundred contractors across 3 offices in California and Nevada.

In 2007 Nicholas transitioned into a contracted consultant to give himself the latitude to explore new ventures.

Nicholas has been a health insurance broker and advocate for his Medicare clients since 2009. He works exclusively with Medicare insurance to ensure he stays current on all of the constant changes in the industry.

Mr. Murch and his family owned agency. HCAG, moved to the Inland Empire in 2015 to help develop the markets of Riverside and San Bernardino counties,

His agency works with doctors throughout Southern California to assist them in educating their patients about Medicare and as a patient advocate.

Nicholas has received recognition from national senior advocacy groups for his leadership and contributions to the senior community as a trusted medicare insurance resource. He has also received recognition from the health insurance carriers as a top producer in Medicare.

Phil Liso


Mr. Liso spent 25 productive years as a City Public Works Inspector.

His main focus was on the maintenance of the City park system where he prided himself in providing a safe and an aesthetically pleasing Park system. He worked closely with the City Community Services to help create successful City events, worked with various private contractors, as the point person, assisting in coordinating a variety of City Capital Improvement Projects and in many cases was the “face” of the City to the residents he would interact with on a daily basis.

In March, 2014, Mr. Liso decided to leave his career with the City to embark on a new challenge. Since 1995 he has been a member of LegalShield. With the positive results he benefited as a member, he decided to become an Independent Associate with LegalShield to get the word out concerning the benefits these plans afford.

Too many everyday Americans cannot afford the high hourly costs of an attorney, especially for legal events that do not warrant that cost. LegalShield levels the playing field. And with IDShield a protective wall is built around each membership.

In 2015, he took another step. He became a Menifee Valley Chamber Member and also a Chamber Ambassador to expose local businesses to the benefits of a membership with our Chamber.

 As a member of the Board of Directors, this affords Phil the opportunity to further the goal of the Shella Foundation.

Gary Veenhuizen

Vice President

I am a Farmers Insurance agent in Wildomar and a member of the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Through that organization I became aware of the Shella Foundation’s mission and activity in the community. My wife, Kathy, and I have a disabled child so we can not only empathize with other members of our community with care needs but also caregivers of those folks, who are often family members needing a break from what is usually a 24/7 commitment.

We believe the Foundation is a vital resource to provide assistance and are proud to be associated with Shella.
