After graduation from Coupeville High School in 1974, my career in the insurance business began as a Customer Service Representative for an independent agency in Coupeville, WA. In 1988 I accepted my current position as a Insurance Account Executive for Koetje Agency. In this position, I write all lines of insurance; business bonds, personal and commercial auto, home , life, health, boat and recreational vehicles. During my career I attained the Accredited Customer Service Representative (ACSR) and Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designations.

The best aspect of my career is providing customers "peace of mind" knowing that if tragedy should strike, they will have a crutch to fall on. While writing some Commercial Lines coverage, I specialize in Personal Lines such as; home, rental home, auto, motorcycle, recreational vehicles, and umbrella policies.

I started my insurance career with Koetje Agency, Inc., in 1977 as a Customer Service Representative for both Personal and Commercial insurance.
