I grew up in Michigan where my core family still resides.  I moved to Tempe, AZ in February of 1987 and love Arizona. I have raised two beautiful, intelligent children: Matthew, 33 and Jessica, 31 both of whom graduated college and are successful business people. I have two wonderful grandsons, thanks to my daughter Jessica, ages 3 & 4. My significant other, Joe Fitzgerald, is a world traveler and owns a Golf Tour Business. I enjoy time spent with my family, friends, golf, and travel... 
 
I am an Insurance professional with over 40 years’ experience.  I started with State Farm when I was 18. I have worked in 3 different Regional Offices and in Agency Field team management.  I began my career as a State Farm Independent Agent in September of 2000 with myself as my 1st client.  I have successfully grown my business and pride myself in providing exceptional customer service with integrity.  Auto, Home, Life, Health, and Business Insurance are all offered in my office along with State Farm Banking Services.
 
I’m proud to be a Rotarian, and first joined the Ocotillo Rotary Club in 2000 and then joined the Sun Lakes Rotary Club in 2014.  Being a Rotarian is all about giving back through Service above Self.  The Sun Lakes Rotary Club supports charitable projects in the community and is especially involved with the education of children in the Chandler School District with programs like providing a Dictionary to every 3rd grader, scholarships for high school students to attend college and recognizing teachers through the Teacher of the Month.  In short, being a member of the Sun Lakes Rotary Club is like being a part of a large happy family.  I can’t help but be inspired and proud to be a member.
