Office Manager

I have been with Scott Grates State Farm since 2009 when the agency opened, but I began working in the insurance field in 2002. I am originally from New York, not too far from the agency. I am licensed in Property & Casualty, Life, Accident, and Health insurance policies. In my spare time, I love activities outdoors, going to the park with my family, going to the lake, watching 4 wheeler races, and sitting by the pool. Call me for a quote!
