My primary focus is on commercial lines coverages for small to medium sized businesses, but I can write coverage for individuals and large businesses, too. Some of the coverages I write is general liability, property, workers compensation, professional liability, commercial auto, bonds, personal home, and renters and auto.

My clients come to me from referrals, networking, partnering with health insurance agencies, accountants, bookkeepers, along with good ol’ fashion prospecting.
