I moved to Fort Wayne in 1981 to start my State Farm agency. My agency makes customer service a priority while taking care of the insurance needs of our State Farm customers. My office team is made up of five team members who combined have over 40 years of insurance experience. We not only provide Automobile and Homeowners insurance for which State Farm is known, but we also provide Life, Health, and Financial Services.
