Welcome to JULY, This month's food pantry challenge is: All things CHEESY!. Please drop off your non-perishable donation at our office to help stock the shelves at our local food pantry with mac-n-cheese, cheesy crackers, cheesy soups, cheesy potatoes, etc.

When I earned the opportunity to open my first State Farm agency in Richland Center in 2014, it was a dream come true! Serving others is the foundation for our entire team. We want to get to know you, and then, help you find the coverage and products that are the right fit for any stage of your life. Our entire team feels privileged and proud to serve the community we were all born and raised in! We help our customers protect their loved ones and their financial future. We have gratitude and respect for being here to walk with our customers through the many changes in their lives such as marriages, new homes, and expanding families. We love being your local insurance resource! But, don’t expect to see us only in the office, look for us out in the Richland County area and communities at football games, fair + festivals, parades, our own parking lot parties, restaurants, etc.

Our team is here to help you with to make sure you have the protection you need to cover your assets you have grown over your life time. We help set up a plan that fits both your insurance needs and your budget. Our desire is to provide customers a simple and personal experience. Our specialties include: Auto Insurance, Home Insurance, Renters Insurance, Boat, ATV, UTV, + Snowmobile Insurance and Small Business Insurance / Life Insurance and Health Insurance. Our office takes great pride in serving our customers and surrounding communities. Our agency is a multiple year Ambassador Traveler, Honor Club, Multi-year Small Business Premiere agency, and multi-year Chairman Circle qualifier.

In addition to my dream job as a State Farm agent, I am a blessed wife, and a mother of 3 daughters, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and 1 goldfish! I love of the outdoors in all seasons, hiking, biking, both playing and watching sports, with an equal appreciation for baking, a great book, and an awesome euchre tournament! I am a firm believer in life-long learning which began at The University of Wisconsin Richland, followed by UW-Whitewater, University of Minnesota, and lastly, earning my M.S.E at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
