I have been in the insurance industry since 1998 and have experience on both the independent side, as well as the direct writer side of the business. I have worked for Farm Bureau as well as Allstate. Utilizing my extensive experience and knowledge of the insurance industry, I am better equipped to service all your insurance needs.
My goal for my agency is to build long lasting relationships with my customers. I want to be your agent for life and for the generations to come.

I am married to my wife, Amy, and have three kids, Emma, Ethan and Evan. In my spare time, I enjoy walking and lifting weights and attending my kids sporting events which include soccer, basketball, softball and baseball.
I started out in the insurance industry in 1999 working for Farm Bureau Insurance as a multi-line agent. Over the next 17 years I worked with my customers providing home, auto, life, commercial & Farm & Ranch policies and other financial products. Having grown up on a dairy farm in Clay County, Kansas that experience gave me an appreciation for the needs of Farm and Ranchers and the importance of developing a strong relationship with all my customers.
I enjoyed the opportunity being an agent for Farm Bureau, but felt that I could better serve my customers by being an independent agent. Each insured has unique individual needs and wants and it very hard for any single company to meet all these individual needs. Being able to work with several companies I now have the flexibility and experience to make sure that each person is given the opportunity to get the best coverage at the most affordable price. I also work with T&M Financial Inc, through which I can meet people’s individual needs for Life, Disability and Investment products.
Over the years I have found that it is important to meet with my customers annually for a review of their coverage to be sure that their insurance is keeping up with their changing live(s).
I am married to my husband, Don, and we live near Silver Lake. We enjoy weekends with our grandkids and also enjoy riding our RZR, camping and traveling.
