Down the street from the Goodwill

I am a second-generation State Farm Agent who is deeply rooted in the values, history, and reputation of the company I represent. After a two-decade career in higher education, first as a Cuesta College Counselor and then Dean of Student Services, I decided to build upon my legacy of making a positive impact in my community by opening my own State Farm agency. I love helping customers to better plan for the future and ultimately realize their dreams. My State Farm San Luis Obispo, CA office offers auto insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance and more. We are committed to replacing uncertainty with confidence one policy at a time.

My team and I are honored to serve the individuals, families, businesses, and neighbors in our community. It is important for me to get to know my customers, identify their goals, understand their values, and arm them with all the information they need to choose the coverage that is right for them. Dedicated to being the go-to agency for all things insurance, we have made it our priority to protect what matters most to our policyholders. Giving people the confidence and assurance to live life to the fullest is what motivates us every day.

My agency operates out of San Luis Obispo and serves the local residents as well as those living on the Central Coast; Paso Robles, Atascadero, Creston, Templeton, Santa Margarita, Avila Beach, Shell Beach, Pismo Beach, Grover, Arroyo Grande, Huasna, Nipomo, and The Mesa. Licensed to service the entire state of California, my State Farm office offers:

  • Auto Insurance

  • Homeowners & Renters Insurance

  • Health Insurance

  • Life Insurance

  • Business Insurance

  • And more!

State Farm’s focus on being a Good Neighbor aligns closely with my own personal values. I am an advocate for giving back to those who have allowed me to thrive personally and professionally. I am an active member of The Rotary Club, The Chamber of Commerce, and The National Association of Women Business Owners. I also donate to deserving organizations such as Woods Humane Society, Family Care Network, Operation Surf, One Cool Earth, and Jack's Helping Hand.

I am a Cal Poly SLO grad and hold a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Arts in Education. I was born and raised in the Golden State and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Together with my partner, I’m raising 5 kids (including triplets) and a yellow lab. In my rare and cherished free time, I love listening to live music, eating at local restaurants, attending my alma mater’s baseball games, camping with friends, and wine tasting.

I would love to be your agent and get to know your family. My experienced team and I are here for any of your insurance questions and needs. Want to get started today? Call our office or request a quote online now!
