I was born and raised in good ol’ Berks county Pennsylvania. I have lived here all of my life, except for a year spent in Missouri when I was five years old. You could say I’m a true local.
After highschool graduation,I received my associates degree in Business Administration. I had planned to be a fashion buyer focusing on the jewelry industry. As a young girl, I had hoped to be a silversmith one day!
I started in the insurance industry working for a third party worker’s compensation insurance company as a claims processor. However, I was looking for work closer to home, and I was recommended by a family friend to an independent agency. I obtained my insurance licenses at that time. A brief hiatus from personal lines insurance led me to annuity and mutual fund back office management for a local bank. Once my daughter was born, I returned to agency work and this is my 24th year working for a Nationwide Insurance agency which has recently become an independent agency!
It is no secret that I like to talk! I like to talk to people about their life experiences to help them make decisions about their insurance needs. I think getting to know my customers and informing them about their coverage is my favorite part of my job.
I really enjoy spending time with my husband, friends and family. We love family game nights and outdoor movie nights including a nice, big bonfire. My favorite way to spend a weekend or time off is a sporadic road trip with my husband. My daughter is an assisted program teacher at Shady Hollow Farm. We enjoy helping them prepare and host their fundraisers, parties and events to support the farm and their fabulous programs.
