Its May! What a difference those April Showers have made to liven up the natural beauty of the outdoors. Since May is breathing life into nature, we here also have the opportunity to protect your life and your loved ones. As the flowers bloom and the trees sway in the gentle spring breeze, it's a perfect time to take a moment to ensure the safety and well-being of those who matter most to you. Just as nature is flourishing around us, we can also take steps to nurture and protect our own lives and the lives of our loved ones with life insurance. Life insurance is like a safety net, providing financial protection for you and your family. Just as the flowers rely on the sun and rain for nourishment, your loved ones can rely on the security that life insurance offers in times of need. It's a way to show your commitment to their future well-being, ensuring that they are taken care of even when you are no longer around.

In this season of growth and renewal, consider taking the necessary steps to safeguard your family's future. Life insurance not only offers financial support in the event of unexpected circumstances but also serves as a symbol of love and responsibility towards your loved ones.

So, as you enjoy the beauty of May and witness the wonders of nature coming to life, take a moment to reflect on how you can protect and nurture the most important aspects of your life – your family. Embrace the opportunity to secure their future and provide them with the gift of financial stability and protection with life insurance. Just as nature thrives with care and attention, so too can your family flourish with the security that life insurance brings.

My career as a State Farm Agent started 15 years ago. I graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in Financial Administration, I have earned the ChFC; CLU Chartered Life Underwriter; CASL Chartered Advisor for Senior Living, CPCU Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter designations.

Our customers are from around the state including Sparta, Cedar Springs, Comstock Park, Rockford, Walker, Grand Rapids, Newaygo, Fremont , Montcalm County, Muskegon County, Mecosta County, Oceana County, Ottawa County, Kent County, Barry County, Allegan county, Ionia county, the Detroit area. Pretty much where ever you are in Michigan. Your needs are our top priority. If you want a one stop shop for auto, home, motorcycle coverage, life and retirement services we are IT!

My experienced team is knowledgeable in auto and motorcycle coverage to make sure you’re covered while you’re traveling and riding in your recreational vehicle and snowmobiles, insurance to make sure you’re covered when you’re having fun! If you are moving or purchasing a new home, we can assist you in establishing home or renter’s insurance, so you are worry free knowing we’ve got you covered during and after your move. Also, we have the knowledge to help you navigate when your plans are to retire so you can make the most of your retirement. We are also partnering with ROCKET if you are refinancing your home or buying a new one.

When I am not at the office, I like to play golf, go boating (I find boating much more relaxing than golfing!) and working out. I also spend a lot of time in my garden during the summer.

For the past 14 years I have been an instructor for Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes. Each year I teach at least 3 classes in local school districts to empower young people to achieve economic success. My Office and I also participate in our Local Sparta Chamber of Commerce and sponsor some of the community events, such as the Beer and Brat Festival and the Sparta Library Summer Reading Program.
