How did you get started in the Insurance Industry?
I’ve heard there are two ways to get into the insurance business- by accident or you’re born into it. I was an “oops”. I started at GIS part time while finishing college and the rest is history.
What is the best part about working at GIS?
As a company, GIS embraces values that are really important to me- honesty, integrity, respect, trust, and outstanding service.
What is your favorite part about your community?
All the amazing people. It’s wonderful how everyone comes together when there is a need in the community.
Are you involved in any outside organizations?
I am a member of the Valparaiso Rotary Club, an ambassador for the Valparaiso Chamber, and a member of Women in Leadership La Porte County.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Spending time with my family and friends, exercising, and reading a good book.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Hawaii, and I would love to go back!
