Personal Lines Service & Sales
“I have been in the insurance industry for over 4 years and enjoy providing service that exceeds the limits for maximum client satisfaction. My main interest in my spare time is to be active. One thing most people don’t know about me is that I love cooking. My favorite sport is hockey and I am a huge fan of Kassian who plays for Oilers. I like Country music because it gets me in a relaxing mood and reminds me of summer. If you want service that is quick and accurate ask for me!”.
