Licensed Sales Professional

I have been in the insurance industry since 2005 and have been with Allstate just as long. I grew up in the Lafayette area in a small town called Abbeville. When I was in middle school my family moved to Baton Rouge. The best part of my job is my customers. I enjoy helping my clients protect their family for ALL of life's ups and downs. My family is the best part of my life. If I am not at work it is all about them. When I have free time, you can find me at home, in the backyard with the kids and my husband and the dog.

I've been working in insurance for about a year. I'm property & casualty and life & health insured in both Texas and Louisiana. I was born and raised in Sulphur, LA before going to study at LSU. I came back to the area to finish my degree at McNeese. I love having the opportunity to take care of customers' complete insurance needs. I'm a huge fan of a variety of books, movies, and tv shows.
