From traveling around the world to winning a gold medal in the Arthur Murray dance competition, Kansas City, Missouri, natives Phil and Barry Starr have lived an exiting life together.

In addition to his passion for videography and recording our monthly Insights presentations, Phil held a long and successful career in the insurance business. He graduated from Princeton, earned his MBA at Wharton, and became a certified life underwriter. He joined the Army and retired with a captain’s rank. From there, he went on to R. B. Jones Insurance Brokers in Kansas City, and took the company public before retiring after 36 years.

Barry graduated from Smith College, and having studied in Paris for a year, she tutored in French. She also served in many community positions — as a library board member, an art gallery docent, a church volunteer, and a Junior League officer.

How did these two meet? And what brought them to Sarasota?

Insights is a monthly connection where residents can share stories and insights about their lives, careers, and hobbies with Plymouth Harbor employees. A feature of Plymouth Harbor’s developing employee wellness program, OnBoardInsights is offered at noon on the fourth Friday of each month. Open to all employees, lunch is provided, supported by gifts to the Plymouth Harbor Foundation employee assistance fund. Thanks to Phil Starr, each Insights presentation is videotaped for viewing by employees unable to attend the live event.
