I became an insurance agent in 2017, becoming licensed in P&C as well as life, accident, and health. In August 2019, I joined the Stewart Agency, Inc. and have been excited since the first day about what our agency has to offer the community and our clients. Knowing that when the unexpected happens we are here to minimize the stress for our clients is the best part of my job.
Being born and raised in the Southern Tier, it is important to me that my neighbors and community have the protection that they individually require with the highest level of service. I truly enjoy getting to know our clients and tailoring protection packages that best suit their needs and lifestyles.
I have a beautiful 12-year-old daughter, and in my spare time, we enjoy visiting the gorgeous parks in the region and traveling. I love music and baseball and try to attend as many concerts and games as possible in the summer.
I am a licensed client advisor with 19 years of overall experience in home, auto, motorcycle, RV, landlord, and excess umbrella protection. I strive to give the best client experience possible every step of the way from purchasing your first home to enjoying your seasonal toys.
I provide excellent, timely customer service with an articulate attention to detail, making sure all your questions are answered while advising the best protection for you and your lifestyle. It is important to me that you feel confident with your coverage selections knowing that you are protected from the unexpected and have a full understanding of your policies.
