I’ve been a State Farm agent since 2006, and serve residents in the State(s) of Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee. I'm proud to be a part of the local community of Rome, GA and the greater Floyd County area, including Aragon, Armuchee, Cartersville, Cave Spring, Cedartown, Coosa, Euharlee, Kingston, Lindale, Livingston, Rockmart, Shannon and Silver Creek. My agency handles everything from homeowners insurance and renters insurance to auto insurance, life insurance, pet medical insurance, business insurance and more—including policies for motorcycles, boats and RVs. We also offer financial services and welcome speakers of both English and Spanish. Hablamos español.

I joined State Farm in 2001 and worked for another agent for about four years before beginning the process of opening my own agency. I’ve always been a big believer in State Farm as a company, and I’m proud to do my part to fulfill the company’s mission to help people manage everyday risks, plan for a successful future, and protect the things that matter most. In any aspect of life, it makes a huge difference when you have a partner with the will and the resources to back you up, and that’s one of the things I love about State Farm.

My agency has earned a reputation in this community for compassion, honesty, and outstanding customer service—and we try to live up to that with everything we do. We’re always happy to sit down with customers and learn about their specific needs, or explain the finer points of their coverage, or talk about the claims process and what they can expect if and when something goes wrong. People aren’t just numbers to us—we understand that every insurance claim represents a problem that a customer needs our help with. And we refuse to let our customers down.

As for me personally, I’m originally from the Florida Panhandle, and I graduated with a degree in business administration from the University of Maryland. I’m married, I’m an active member of a local church, and in my free time I love bike riding, skiing, exploring different restaurants, going to the beach, and spending time with my friends and neighbors. I also enjoy giving back to the community—I use the State Farm matching program to maximize charity donations, I support local schools, I participate in the Relay for Life, and I’m a member of the Kiwanis Club and the Chamber of Commerce. I love working with the other members of our business community to help improve life for everyone.

So, whether you’re new to the area or you’re just exploring your options, my team and I can help you find the right home, renters, auto, life, or business insurance for your needs. Please call for a free quote.
