Where to begin? I have worked in insurance for about 6 years. It suits me well. I have always worked in customer service, so helping people makes me happy. I appreciate structure and rules. I am not a spontaneous person. I am not a thrill seeker either. Roller coasters, scary movies, sky diving, bungee jumping, ect. are not my idea of a good time. I do enjoy reading, getting to know people, solving problems, learning new things and sharing that info with someone. This is why I love working in the insurance industry. Before I worked in insurance, I worked in healthcare as a respiratory therapist. I realized very quickly I liked people too much to see them sick and suffering all the time. I wanted to help people in a different way. Then came insurance.
Before AAA, I worked for 2 State Farm agents in Shawnee and MWC. When my husband took a job near Stillwater, I started looking for a job closer to where we live in Perkins. I met with AAA about opportunities within their company. They told me they needed an agent in Guthrie. Two months later I had signed a lease on an office space and spent the next couple of months getting everything ready to open for business. We officially opened on February 02, 2015. I remember getting the office decorated and the computers all setup and thinking now what? We were open but had no customers! So I went out in the community. I joined the Chamber and met all of you wonderful people. I cherish the friendships I have made since I have been here. People always ask me if I am from Guthrie. Although I do not live in Guthrie, I did go to preschool here at Tree House Pre-school. My family moved shortly after. It is good to be back! We have been open for almost 3 years now. We just moved into a bigger office space to accommodate our growing business. I am looking to bring more team members on for 2018. I had a 5 year plan that happened 2 years early thanks to this community.
AAA has been a great company to work with. Here is a little history lesson for you: They were the first auto club formed in 1902, has offered insurance for over 100 years, produced maps and depicted roads, introduced road signs as landmarks, set the standard for safe driving programs, introduced tourbooks and the School Safety Patrol program, adopted the AAA Diamond rating for hotels, and so much more. We offer insurance for your home, auto, life, and commercial needs. If there is anything I can help with, please give me a call at 405-293-6633 or stop by our new office at 622 S Division St in Guthrie.
Thank you for allowing me to serve this great community!
