While paying less for your insurance is important, the most important thing to me is ensuring that you have the right insurance products in place to protect you, your family, and your assets from the unexpected and that way everyone is able to more easily recover. It's not only about giving our customers the lowest price, but rather providing value. We offer a robust product line including life insurance, home insurance, health insurance, auto insurance, financial products, and small business insurance along with several other insurance products.

With over 20 years’ customer service experience and over 8 years in the insurance industry, I truly believe that my past experiences have helped mold and develop my standards when it comes to providing our customers with the utmost level of service. Being an insurance agent has enabled me to build amazing relationships with my customers, who many have become like family. As part of my family, I want nothing more than to help ensure that for every step in life your insurance needs are being properly met and that you're prepared for the future, whether it be auto insurance for your first car or life insurance for your newest grandchild. The Bastrop Insurance Team is here to help!

As for how I arrived in Bastrop, TX, I was born and raised in Midland, TX where I graduated from Robert E Lee High School. After high school I decided it was time for a change of scenery, one with a little less dust and oil, so I moved to San Marcos, TX to attend Texas State University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication. While attending Texas State I became a member of Alpha Xi Delta sorority and met my now husband, Brandon. After college we moved to Cedar Park, TX where we lived for 13 years prior to making a life changing decision to move to the amazing city of Bastrop, TX. We have two spunky children, my daughter, Parker, who is 8, and my son, Colton, who is 5. As a family we enjoy soaking up the sunshine, walking the trails in our neighborhood and surrounding area, going to the river, camping (glamping more so), and spending time with our family and friends. We absolutely love Bastrop, the community, the people, and all that it has to offer and look forward to spending many years here!

We'd also like to welcome Tesla, Google, Apple, Samsung, and Space X, to the Austin - Bastrop area! We understand that relocating you and your family can be a hectic. Our team has lived in the Austin area for several years and are familiar with Bastrop and all of it's surrounding areas. We love assisting those new to the area and will help you navigate any changes in your insurance needs. Again, welcome to the area!
