About Me

My favorite place to visit in the winter is Marquette's Presque Isle Park! The views of the lake are gorgeous at this time of year. There are paths for walking and snowshoeing through the woods that are fun for all. And, here are a few more things about me...

I am a native Yooper (yes, it’s really a word and they added it to Webster’s dictionary) and I have always known I wanted to work for State Farm. I’ve been an agent in Marquette for 20 years and have been with State Farm for just under 22 years. I started in a AFS role and worked hard to get my own agency.

Northern Michigan University is my alma mater, where I spent my fun filled college years. My team and I love helping NMU students with their coverage needs and protecting their prized possessions. Fall Festivities are my favorite time of year on Campus.

I’m proud that my office serves all of Marquette County and the greater Upper Peninsula. My family participates in sports and other community activities. I am a mother of three and my life revolves around my kids and husband, their activities, and my community service. With my Zonta Club membership, I’ve been able to work with an international organization that works to enhance the status of women and children in our local communities.

I am passionate about helping my customers find the right coverage for them; my specialty and favorite product is Life Insurance, and the many benefits and protections these policies provide. My faith has been important to me throughout my life, especially when I lost my mother at a younger age. Life insurance provided the opportunity to make sure my mother’s final wishes were fulfilled.

My team and I know firsthand the benefits of the products we provide, and we advocate for all customers, at all stages of life and circumstances, and help guide them to discover the right protection at the right price.

Many of my family members have been, or are, State Farm Agents and I hope to welcome YOU to our State Farm Family!
