Here is a little bit about me:

  • I was born and raised in Delaware so helping my neighbors where I live is really an honor.

  • I received my Masters Degree from the University of Delaware and spent 19-years as a teacher for the Caesar Rodney School District. I have a passion for education which I bring with me every day as a State Farm Agent.

  • When I am not in the office you can find me hanging out at the barn with my horses. Along with my two human children, Jeff & Lindsay, they bring me much joy. I also enjoy spending quiet time at home with all of my cats and reading as much as possible. I am not the crazy cat lady yet, but my kids say I am on my way!

Whether you prefer to chat by phone, text, e-mail or stop in for a coffee and conversation, my experienced team and I are here to help you with all of your insurance needs. Our office is a warm, friendly environment where we want you to feel like part of our family. We try to make insurance fun and easy to understand while also educating you on what it is that you are purchasing. We know the importance of making sure that you and your family's assets are properly protected and helping you uncover those needs is a top priority to us!

Insurance Account Representative

Delaware has been home for me my entire life. I graduated from Dover High School in 2015 and received my bachelor's degree in finance from Wilmington University in 2020. I have several years of experience working with our local community and began at Kathy's agency in early 2023. Each day we are presented with life's challenges and hurdles, as a licensed team member of Kathy's office, I help assist individuals and families in the management of those risks. Auto, Home, Life, Health or Business Insurance doesn't have to be complicated, and we are here to provide the guidance necessary through education and service.

When I am not helping people manage life's obstacles, I am with my yellow lab, Max, down at the beach or on the back nine of the golf course looking for my ball.

Give us a call today to help mark insurance off your to-do list!

I grew up in Maryland and moved to Delaware in 2001.  I started with Kathy's agency in 2020, however I have worked with State Farm agents for over 20 years.  During that time  have seen and been a part of the State Farm commitment to helping people be prepared for the unexpected and to recover from loss.  I enjoy giving excellent customer service and taking the time to review and explain coverage's in all lines of insurance including auto, home, life and business.  I value the customer and meeting their specific insurance needs.

In my spare time I enjoy exercising, reading and spending time with my family, especially my 2 beautiful granddaughters.
