Our Founder Story

My family has been involved in small business since my early years.  My father managed a beef farm, developed properties, owned and ran an excavation company – finally settling down in Oklahoma for retirement to a family farm.  My upbringing taught me that hard work is what sets you apart from others.  If you really want something you must be prepared to earn it.

 

My career with Farmers began in 2001 in the claims department after a ten-year career as a restaurant manager.  I have handled every type of personal lines claim that occurs in the Farmers family of companies.  The service skills developed as a restaurant manager along with dedication and hard work allowed me success as a Claims Representative.  I was able to achieve various customer service awards along with the Utmost Award for my service assisting victims of Hurricane Ike in 2008 in Louisiana.

I have also had the opportunity to support our customers in Alabama, South Dakota, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington.

 

In 2015 I decided that I wanted to take the knowledge that I gained in life and in claims to serve a greater purpose.  I felt that operating my own agency would allow me to help the people in the communities that I live and work in to be a better place.

 

With my efforts in the St. Johns area of Portland, Oregon I have been able to professionally guide people in finding affordable insurance that will truly protect them, their families and their property.  I work with the St. Johns Center for Opportunity, the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation, Suits for Soldiers, Impactful People, and our local schools.  These opportunities provide my agency with the ability to educate and enrich the communities in which we live and work.
