I worked 10 years in State Farm fire claims prior to opening our State Farm Agency in 1995. I received my BA in Business Administration from the University of Iowa, interviewed with State Farm on campus and have been with this great organization ever since. My wife Nancy is retired but an active community volunteer, we have 3 sons, and our grandson Westin is the newest joy in our lives. Our passion is in working one on one to help people prepare for what goes both right and wrong in their life. Our insureds become part of our State Farm family.
