I am originally from Missouri, was in the USAF for 4 years and spent the majority of that time at Luke AFB. I am married and have 3 children and 12 grandchildren. I have been in the insurance business for over 32 years, starting in the Farm Bureau organization in 1982. After my time with Farm Bureau Insurance I represented Country Companies for 9 years and American National Property and Casualty for 15 years. I made the decision to become an independent agent because it allowed me the ability to offer my clients more choices rather than just one Carrier. One of the blessings I have found in this business is the opportunity to meet people, make friends, and help them protect themselves and their families.
