Owner

F: 260-478-8121

The Wise insurance agency was started in 1990 and has since grown to over 2,000 households. After being a captive agent for 17 years the agency went to the next level and became and independent with many A+ rated carriers. Now, with such versatility, we can offer a large variety of insurance products that will suit every client's needs.

I am a Fort Wayne native who also coaches football at the University of Saint Francis. My son, Jordan, is a recent graduate of the University of Saint Francis and is pursuing his master's degree in business management while working at Lincoln Financial Group. My daughter, Jenna, is currently a senior at IU where she is studying psychology and planning her master's degree after graduation.

I am doing what I love which is analyzing personal and commercial insurance needs for clients. I spent my previous professional career in the employment agency field after graduating from Indiana University in Accounting. I have been married for thirty years to a COO of a financial firm and am blessed with three grown sons.

The business contacts I developed while living in Fort Wayne since the mid 80’s helped jump start my career when I joined Wise Insurance in 2003. Our agency members put our clients' best interests first which sets us apart from others. Representing over a dozen carriers gives us options so we can tailor insurance proposals to our clients' needs and find the perfect carrier for them.

Wise insurance has been a success for over 25 years because of who we are and how much we care. My part of the business is built mainly on referrals and no matter how large or small the risk, each household and business matters and I’ll do my best for each client. I appreciate the association I’ve had with Wise Insurance for over twelve years and proud of what we do for our clients in all areas.

Agency Producer / CSR

F: 260-478-8121

My career in the insurance business started in 1999 with Wise Insurance. I originally hired in as the receptionist and quickly worked my way into getting my property & casualty license followed a year later by a license in life & health insurance. I've spent the last 17 years servicing our existing clients and welcoming new clients into the agency. Each day brings a new challenge as the insurance industry is at a constant change. We are an independent agency so there is much to learn about each carrier as well as each individual client. I enjoy working in a diversified agency where I can meet any insurance need no matter the situation.

On a personal level, I have been happily married for 12 years and have a beautiful 11- year-old daughter and rambunctious 6-year-old son. They are the light of my life. I like to do anything outdoors if the weather isn't too cold or rainy. I just love spending time with my family.

I am honored to be part of the Wise Insurance Agency. The shared experience, dedication and knowledge of our staff are invaluable. We have a great team of employees working together to do whatever it takes. After 17 years of employment I am still very much dedicated to my job. I only look forward to what the future brings for me and for the agency.

I take a personalized approach to Insurance. I want to get to know you, your needs, your house, your cars and tailor a package that aligns with your needs. I want to become partners and friends in the process. I will treat you like my own family and stay focused on exceeding your expectations. I will earn your trust and stay in communication with you throughout the entire process. I am a bull dog when it comes to claims and will not settle until my client is taken care of. This approach has served me well in my 23 years of Insurance.

F: 260-478-8121

I started my career in the insurance industry 24 years ago as a claims representative with a major national insurance company. I finished out my tenure there as a Sales and Service Agent writing insurance in all 50 states. I left that position to pursue a new opportunity working as captive insurance agent for a large regional insurance company where I spent several years helping people protect the things that were most important to them.

In April of 2018 I was blessed to be able to join the family of Wise Insurance. It is here where I met people with the same commitment to excellence I had embodied my entire career. Joining Wise Insurance enabled me to become an independent agent for the first time. How liberating! To be able to help people find the perfect fit for their insurance needs within a host of 15 A+ rated companies is such a pleasure. I look forward to a long and rewarding career here at Wise Insurance helping the people of our community protect the things that matter to them most.

On a personal note, I have been married to my best friend for the last 14 years. We enjoy spending family time outdoors on the shooting range with our son (24) and daughter (11).

I am very excited to be joining the Wise Insurance family as their new Texas agent. I have been a licensed property and casualty agent in the insurance industry for several years and a Texas native for over 20 years. I hold the same beliefs and values as Wise Insurance Agency…you and your families’ needs are my number one priority. I believe in treating everyone like my own family and establishing a personal foundation with each client. I will always be happy to answer any and all questions and if I don’t have the answer…I will find it. I truly feel that everyone’s time is valuable and will always strive to be available not only during office hours, but after…because life doesn’t just happen from 9-5. I am looking forward to this great opportunity to help Wise Insurance continue to be the successful agency that it has been for over 3 decades.

On a personal note, I have 3 kids that keep me entertained, two sons (17)(15) and a daughter (13). And in my free time I enjoy teaching Zumba classes at several of the local gyms in the DFW area. I was a former NFL Cheerleader for the Jacksonville Jaguars, many moons ago….and am sometimes teased about being an “insurance cheerleader” because of my passion and excitement for everything insurance related. But I don’t mind one bit….
