We make insurance easy with clear communication and honest guidance. When it comes to protecting the things you care about, it’s crucial for me to speak your language. Insurance customers deserve to know exactly what they are paying for and why. After 14 years on State Farm ’s customer experience team, I know just how important clear, straightforward communication is. If my customers have any questions, they call my team directly instead of being stuck on hold with an ☎ 800-number. We have a reputation for being thorough and break down complicated insurance matters into plain talk that even your granny can understand.

From our Portland office, my team and I help families and local businesses with property 🏡, casualty 🚗, life 👩‍❤️‍👩, and health 💊 insurance. Don't forget about our furry friends too 🐶😺 ! I come from a family of small business owners. Growing up my mom ran a hairdressing salon in my childhood home, my Dad ran a body shop in front of our house so I know the challenges faced by local businesses every day. I am passionate about helping small businesses stay in business when they face the unexpected.

I serve Cumberland, York, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin, Oxford, Portland, South Portland, Falmouth, Gorham, Scarborough, Westbrook, Cumberland, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Standish, Gray, New Gloucester, and Pownal. My team and I live to help our neighbors secure the right insurance policies at the right price with State Farm. After 14 years with the country’s top insurance provider, I keep being astonished by the ways that State Farm can change people’s lives. I am passionate about helping people with the confidence to live their lives knowing the things they care about are protected.

We will help you assess your options from the country’s top insurance provider, State Farm, so your family, home or business will be secured and protected from the unexpected. Also stop in to say hi to the team and meet our furry pup Bowser. He's a mini Bernadoodle and will surely make you feel like the most important person in the world!
