Jennifer Agate joined the GIS team in our Personal Lines department in March 2016 after earning her Bachelor’s Degree from Illinois State University. As a Personal Lines Agent in our Michigan City office, she specializes in home and auto insurance. Jenn and her husband, Chris, live in La Porte and enjoy spending their time on the lake.
What is the best part about working at GIS?
GIS is actively involved in the community and local organizations.
What is your favorite part about your community?
Watching it grow and change. I grew up in the Suburbs of Chicago, so living in a smaller town is a new experience for me. It’s unique and inviting. It’s nice to feel like you can give back to your community and really make an impact.
Are you involved in any outside organizations?
I’m involved in the Lakefront Career Network, La Porte Jaycees, and the La Porte Chamber Retention and Expansion Committee. I’m also an active Michigan City Chamber Ambassador.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Relaxing with friends and family. I can usually be found outside enjoying our lakes or relaxing by a bonfire after a nice meal from the grill. I live for the summer months and all there is to experience in our area.
What is your favorite time of day, day of the week, and month of the year?
11:11am on a Friday in July
Would you rather go to a comedy club or dance club?
If you could take only three items with you to a deserted island, what would they be and why?
Food, water, & Bear Grylls from “Man vs. Wild” – At least then I’d have a chance of survival.
Where would you choose to live: by the ocean, in the mountains or in the woods?
By the ocean next to the woods.
