Maura Martino - President

Maura Martino As the Principal of AHS, I am dedicated to providing honest and valuable health and life insurance consultation to New Hampshire and Maine corporate groups as well as individuals. I've worked hard to build a reputation as an honest, easy-to-work-with, independent professional, and take pride in being able to provide a sense of clarity and understanding in an often-confusing scrum of health and life insurance choices.

I grew up in a family business and inherited an entrepreneurial spirit, so it made perfect sense to begin my own corporate venture with the purchase of Affordable Health Solutions. My experience on the "other side" of corporate insurance has afforded me a unique personal understanding and perspective that is valuable to our clients.

As for my career path, after leaving a job on Capitol Hill in Washington DC to come back to New England, I worked for a corporate healthcare company, spearheading their expansion into the Boston market. Living on the seacoast of New Hampshire for the past 25 years, I've held a number of roles, allowing me to balance work while raising our family.

Personally, raising five children with my husband Paul keeps us active in our community. Local youth sports, civic volunteering and of course, days at the beach, keep us busy and happy!

Lorie Graves - Agent/Producer

Lorie Graves I joined Affordable Health Solutions in January 2009, bringing 15 years of experience in the insurance field as a liaison between the NH broker community and countless insurance companies. I am fully licensed in New Hampshire and Maine and seasoned at effectively guiding clients through the entire insurance process.

As a veteran of the insurance industry, my knowledge of varied insurance plans has been a tremendous asset to AHS's independent approach of offering flexibility and realistic options to individuals and employer groups. I take pride in providing excellent customer service, attention to detail, and unfailing dedication to follow up.

In August 2021, my husband and I moved to GA to be closer to our 3 grandchildren. Though I work remotely from my home, you will find the same customer service, attention to detail and consistent follow up.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my 3 grandchildren, the warm days in GA, and gardening.

Heidi Bunnell - Agent/Producer/Office Manager

Heidi Bunnell Heidi has held many roles throughout her lifetime, with one common thread weaving its way deeply within each: helping others. From her start as a severe special needs teacher, to devoting her time to staying home with her three children, to then running an award-winning limousine company, producing documentaries, as well as helping people design their dream kitchens and baths, Heidi had experienced it all before finding her calling at at Affordable Health Solutions.

As office manager and fully licensed broker in the states of New Hampshire and Maine, Heidi thrives on assisting individuals and businesses to find the best options for their families and employees when it comes to health insurance and other important benefits. She enjoys the ongoing relationships she forms with our clients as they continue to navigate the insurance world, providing quick responses and guidance when necessary. She goes out of her way to make sure our clients fully understand their benefits and how to utilize them.

When not busy deciphering the world of insurance, Heidi cherishes the time she spends with her three children and her fiancé. You can find her playing weekly trivia, combing the beach for sea glass, hiking, and traveling to places she once only dreamed of.
