I have been with Uren & Myers since 1981 and became an owner in 2005.  Unlike most people, I truly love helping others with insurance!  I am married and have two grown children.  I have three dogs, one of which is our agency mascot. I enjoy family, the outdoors, dog walks, and photography.  My most recent hobby is posting a photo a day on Instagram.  I am a Certified Insurance Counselor, Certified School Risk Manager, and Certified Risk Manager.  I hold a Masters in Governance through the California School Board Association.

I have worked as a customer service representative for Uren & Myers since 2003. I am a state licensed property and casualty insurance agent.   In 2005 I obtained a Certified Insurance Counselor Designation through the National Alliance exemplifying competency in the industry and commitment to excellence through advance education.   To expand my skill set I began working on a background in Risk Management and in 2009 achieved the National Alliances designation of Certified Risk Manager, the professional standard for risk managers.  These two certifications work hand in hand to bring customers a complete service experience.  I continue to focus on education and have begun a risk management education program focused on Schools to hone in on Uren & Myers niche industry.  I enjoy the philosophy of risk management in business and everyday life and love getting to share these ideas with customers.  

I adore spending weekends with my husband and our two daughters exploring the world through their eyes.  Living in California and having short distances between climates allows us to experience lots of family fun whether it is canoeing, tobogganing, going to “paradise” aka beach with palm trees, or whatever adventure is next!  I love gaining new life experiences and welcome the opportunity to say “why not” when somebody says “hey, do you want to…?  I’m a believer that both dirt and laughter are good for the soul. In every part of life my ending goal is to leave a positive footprint in my steps.

I joined Uren & Myers Insurance Agency in 2002.  I obtained my insurance license in 2003 and received my CISR designation in 2009.  I telecommute during the week and join the team in the office twice a month.  I work in both commercial lines and personal lines.  My goal is to provide clients with an honest, thoughtful problem solving approach to the complex world of insurance.  I find working with like-mind, responsible colleagues most satisfying.  I currently reside in the Sierra Foothills with my family. My interests include hiking, rafting, camping, snowshoeing and basket making.

It has been my pleasure being able to speak to all of our clients being the live phone receptionist for Uren & Myers since 1994.   Along with answering phones, I assist in facilitating claims as well as various processing duties.   

During my off time I am a care giver for the elderly. I love walking and hiking by the bay with my little poodle rescue roommate. I enjoy working in my garden since I discovered I have an easier time keeping succulents healthy. I enjoy making bead work bracelets and I will drop almost anything to hang out with my niece, her daughter and my nephews.
