Spring is here, and we're ready to help you protect what matters most! It's all about new beginnings, and we've got your back. Whether you need to freshen up your insurance coverage or make sure you're protected, we're here to help you make the most of this season of growth and renewal. Give us a shout – call, text, email, or swing by our office – and let's review your coverage together. Don't miss out on the exciting opportunities this spring has in store.

I have been a State Farm agent since 1991. I grew up in Charleston, West Virginia, and graduated from University of Charleston with my BS in Marketing in 1988.

My husband, Doug, and I have twin boys, John-Logan and Preston, who are in college at Fairmont State and WVU.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf and attending sporting events. I also love to travel, particularly to my favorite place, Pinehurst, NC, because of its quaint, relaxing, small-town atmosphere. I also have a large, lovable Labrador retriever named Bo Jackson, who can often be seen lounging on the office couch, or roaming around looking for snacks or loves!
