Give us a call and we’ll review your current policies to make sure you're covered properly with all the discounts you deserve. We call this our “Good Hands Check Up”, making sure you have the right coverage for the right price with service being our #1 priority is what my agency is all about.

I have been a manager for Cheryl Bowker's agency for the last 3 years but worked for her for the last 14 years, starting with just filing and answering phones. I love what I do, I love the team I work with and the clients we have obtained. Helping my clients understand insurance and giving them the coverage they need is very rewarding to me next to earning their trust and getting that referral from them to help a friend or family member.I graduated with a bachelors from Eastern Michigan. The most important thing in my life is my family. I have two young children and a very supportive husband.
