About Me

If I wasn’t an awesome insurance advisor, I wish I could have been an archaeologist/paleontologist.  I dig for fossils and antique bottles on a regular basis.  I love dinosaurs, fossils, and history.  I am also an audiophile and love record collecting.  Fishing, kayaking, hiking and being outdoors are some of my favorite activities as well. 

My Philosophy

I decided to become an insurance agent in 2001.  My main reason for choosing this career was simple: I wanted to help people.  Spring forward 21 years and this is still my focus as an agent…helping people.  It could be helping someone file a claim after a storm, helping someone protect their first car, their first home or just helping someone to find peace of mind!  I love to help.  My philosophy regarding insurance is simple, do right by your customers and they will do right by you!

"I was switching over from another insurance provider and they made it the easiest thing possible for me. Anything I had questions on they knew and if I had to send them information about anything I can shoot my agent with a quick picture of the information over a text! Friendly, and honest people."
