I’ve been a State Farm agent for over 21 years, and I have nearly 32 total years of insurance experience with State Farm. I’m proud to serve the residents and business owners of San Diego and the surrounding area—including Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Ramona and Escondido. My agency handles everything from homeowners insurance and auto insurance to life insurance and small business insurance, and we also offer financial services.

My dedicated team of professionals has the experience and knowledge to help you with just about any insurance need. We welcome homeowners insurance, business insurance, auto insurance and renters insurance and more. We’re known for breaking down the complicated details of coverage into simple terms. I always make sure our customers understand every aspect their coverage, and I take pride in helping people protect the things that matter most.

We don’t take ourselves too seriously—but we treat your policies and your protection with the greatest care and attention to detail. As a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), I have credentials in risk management and property-casualty insurance, and I look at every situation from the perspective of our customers.

I’m originally from Bloomington, IL, and I’m a graduate of the University of Illinois. After college, I spent a number of years working with insurance claims in Chicago, before eventually moving to California two decades ago. I have two grown children, and in my free time we enjoy camping, skiing, boating, and hiking with our yellow lab and chocolate lab. I love watching our San Diego sports teams—I’m still a fan of the “Bolts” and always a fan of the “Pads.” I also enjoy staying involved in activities with the San Diego business community—I’m a member (and past president) of Toastmasters, and I’m active with the San Diego CPCU Society Chapter.

Whether you’re new to the area or you’re just exploring your options, my team and I can help you find the right home, renters, auto, life, or small business insurance for your needs. Please call for a free quote.
