Michigan Summers in July are the amazing! As a proud Michigan native, I was born in Detroit and raised in the metro Detroit area. I pursued my education at Eastern Michigan University, where I graduated with a B.A in Education. While I've had the opportunity to live in Wyoming and North Carolina, I'm thrilled to be back in the Great Lake State the play I will always call HOME!

My journey led me to follow in the footsteps of my father and grandfather as a 3rd generation State Farm Agent. Prior to joining State Farm, I enjoyed a fulfilling career as an elementary school teacher. In November 2016, our office opened its doors, and since then, we've had the pleasure of building relationships with community members while helping families plan and prepare for the unexpected.

Beyond my professional life, I'm a dedicated mother of two, and I strive to maintain a healthy work-life balance. During our free time, you'll often find my family cheering on our favorite sports teams, immersing ourselves in nature, or tending to our garden. Giving back to the community we serve is a core value for us, and we embody the State Farm slogan "Like a Good Neighbor" in all that we do. The Community Cabinet in downtown Alma is maintained by our amazing team and we are humbled daily by the generosity of our local community.

I'm honored to be actively involved in various community groups, including the Alma Action Committee and serving as a board member for Child Advocacy, the Alma Downtown Development Association, and the Community Cabinet in Alma. Additionally, I am a proud member of the Alma Aspires Group, working towards helping our community.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me better. I look forward to continuing to support and connect with the amazing people in our Alma community. Make today GREAT! :)
