It's time for summer!

Whether your season is filled with graduation, weddings, vacation plans or just enjoying the warm weather, we hope you enjoy it!

I am proud to share that I have spent more than 30 years as a State Farm agent, since first joining the company in 1985. I opened my current agency in 2014, and I’m proud to serve the residents of beautiful Santa Barbara and the surrounding areas. Whether you drive a car from Goleta to Buellton; have a home or live in Montecito or Carpinteria; or a business in Summerland or Lompoc, my agency can help you. We love to assist with life insurance and more—including coverage for electric vehicles, motorcycles, and RVs. We also offer financial services.

I’ve spent my entire career with State Farm, including eight years working with the corporate office in claims and company leadership. And I’m proud to continue what has become a family tradition—I’m a third-generation State Farm agent. I grew up with the company and have learned every side of the business over the course of my career, and my licensed, dedicated team treats every one of our customers with care. I believe in empowering customers with the knowledge and confidence to choose the coverage that most suits their needs, and I consider myself a champion for them. You’re more than just a number with us. We understand that our role is to help you—not push anything—and we assure that your needs will always be our top motivation. Hablamos español.

Being a life-time resident of California means I know the area extremely well. I earned my bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University, and continued my education for the benefit of my insurance customers—eventually becoming a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU). This means I have advanced education in life insurance, property insurance, and business insurance —and I’m always happy to share my knowledge with customers. I have two grown daughters with successful careers of their own, and in my free time I love spending time with my granddaughter, playing pickle ball, going to baseball games, and going to the beach with my fiancée Mario and our golden retriever, Bella.

I’m community oriented, and I’m always looking for ways to make a difference. We happily support our local high schools' sports teams, and we do an annual Toys For Tots campaign in December. I’m a member of the local Chamber of Commerce, and I was a co-founder of the Goleta Lemon Festival. I’m the past-president of the Rotary Club of Goleta, and I was honored with the Paul Harris Fellow Award and as the Rotarian of the Year. In 1993, I received the great and humbling honor of being named the Goleta Woman of the Year.
