I grew up in a business family. I learned early on that someday I would like to own a business. My parents taught me to be positive and that the sky is the limit if you work at your goals. After graduating from college, I worked downtown Chicago at an advertising agency. My most famous account was for a large fast food chain! In 1989, I left advertising to attend graduate school for a degree in counseling. In April, 1990 I was approached to become a State Farm agent. So on August 1, 1990 I opened my doors. I love my business, my team and my clients. I work very hard at taking care of people and putting them first. On a personal level. I am married to Bill and we just celebrated our 25th anniversary. We have 2 amazing children who are in college. Mason is currently in California working towards his graduation in June with a degree in business. Our daughter, Emma, just started her freshman year at my alma mater in Indiana where she is studying business as well. It must be in their blood. I am most proud of their work ethic, their independence and ease with school work. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for both of them!
