As we celebrate Independence Day with fireworks, BBQs, and family gatherings, it’s also a great time to think about your insurance needs. Ensuring your home, car, and family are protected so you can enjoy the festivities worry-free.

One of the many things I remember from my time growing up in Georgia is that my father had the same State Farm Agent for 45 years. Now that I am a State Farm Agent, I aim to be that go-to person people can depend on for years to come. I have been working in the insurance industry since 2011 and am passionate about protecting my customers from everything that life can throw their way. My State Farm Richmond, VA office has you covered with auto insurance, homeowner's insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and more.

My team and I have had the privilege of working with countless individuals, families, and business owners. We are committed to treating each and every person with transparency, respect, and compassion. We may not be professional baseball players, but knowing the ins and outs of all things insurance-related gives us the ability to help you prepare for any curveball life may throw your way. With my dedicated team on your side, you will be able to say goodbye to unnecessary stress and pursue your dreams with confidence.

My agency is based in Richmond and provides excellent insurance to the locals as well as those living in the surrounding areas of Henrico, Glen Allen, and Chesterfield. Licensed to service the entire state of Virginia, my State Farm office offers:

● Auto Insurance

● Homeowners & Renters Insurance

● Health Insurance

● Life Insurance

● Small Business Insurance

● And more!

I graduated from The University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and a Master of Arts. I also spent more hours than I care to count earning my RICP designation from The American College, however it was worth it. I currently serve as Chair of the Virginia Fair Housing Board and am also the Vice-Chair of the State Farm Federal PAC Virginia State Advisory Committee. I am also a member of the Women's Advisory Council of the Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth.

Community involvement has always been a priority for me, which is why I am an active member of the Richmond Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners, the Women Realtors Council, the Richmond LGBTQ Chamber, Leadership Metro Richmond as well as a Junior League of Richmond Sustainer. I am also a believer in paying it forward. Keeping my Good Neighbor reputation intact, I am a supporter of many worthy nonprofits including Diversity Richmond, Leadership Metro Richmond, and the American Cancer Society.

When I’m away from the office, I love spending time with my family and friends. I am happily married to my husband who, in my humble opinion, is a living saint. Together, we have four wonderful children and one cat named Elle. In my spare time, I like to read, exercise, bake mini cakes, Facetime with my kids, and teach people the proper barking chant for UGA football games: Go Dawgs!

As the weather warms up and summer approaches, we're excited to offer insurance options that protect you and your family during your adventures. Our office is ready to help you protect your auto, home, and life. Call, text, or email of office to make sure you have the protection you and your family need! Contact us today!
