I grew up in Alaska, after graduation, I went to work for an independent insurance agency in 1986. I worked there for 7 years, 2 of the 7 years I managed the personal lines dept. My family and I decided to move to Kila, MT in 1993 where we built our home. I went to work for Colin Andrews/State Farm Insurance in 1994. after working for Colin for 15 years, my husband and I decided to open Best insurance in the Hutton Ranch area of Kalispell. July of 2014, we purchased a building in Historic downtown Kalispell where we moved our offices. We love the downtown area. We have enjoyed working with our present customers and are looking forward to working with you.
I was born in Oklahoma, lived there for 18 years. After high school my family and I moved to Alaska, met my wife (Amanda) there and we had two great boys, in 1992 we moved to the Flathead valley where I operated a business with my father. In 2008 my wife and I opened Best Insurance, this is where I got my feet wet in the insurance business. I have enjoyed working in this very interesting field and having the opportunity to work side by side with my wife. We enjoy working with the great people of the Flathead.
I was born and raised in Southern Minnesota. After attending Minnesota School of Business, I went to work for a large insurance company, which began the long and winding road of my 40 year insurance career. I discovered Kalispell in 1979, and moved here in 1983. Amanda and I met during my 16 years with Colin Andrews and State Farm. It’s great to be back together with her again at Best Insurance. My specialty is personal lines insurance, and I very much enjoy the wonderful relationships that I’ve made with my clients through the years. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband, Richard. I also try to keep track of my two cats, Billy the bird, and my 55 house plants. During the summer I spend a lot of time outside with my flowers, and then watch the deer eat them.

She enjoys spending time with her daughters, family and friends. She enjoys barrel racing, kayaking and shopping.
I've spent most of my life in beautiful Western Montana. After graduating from Rasmussen College with a Bachelor's in business, I pursued getting my insurance license. That was over 10 years ago! I've had many good experiences in the insurance industry and have enjoyed continueing to learn about it as it changes often. I spend much of my free time with my two little boys and enjoy the chaos that comes along with them.
I was raised right here in the beautiful Flathead Valley. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and cheering for my son at our local football and basketball games. I love learning the insurance world here at Best Insurance. I work with some wonderful women here and enjoy coming into the office each day to meet each of you and help meet your insurance needs.
