Hello and welcome!

Making a difference in the lives of the people we serve, as well as our community, has always been a priority. Our agency offers various insurance services, including auto, life and health, home, renters and business insurance.

Here's a little bit about myself:

My background is very diverse. I played basketball for Portage HS and received All Conference for the Porter County Conference. I then used my scholarship to go to Alderson-Broaddus University in West Virginia to obtain a BS Degree in Business. While at Alderson-Broaduss University, I found my beautiful wife, who was head cheerleader.

I then went to Indiana University and Purdue's night school program to obtain a teaching license. I loved teaching 5th grade for 7 years. During the summer months, I built duplexes. When my wife became pregnant we discovered my teaching salary was not going to be enough. I was recruited by a State Farm recruiter.

My first agency was in Portage for 3 years. Then I was recruited to be a manager for State Farm. After managing 16 agents for 21 years, I then took over two agencies and moved to La Porte. I have been in La Porte for over 40 years serving our wonderful community. By getting to know each individual family, I am able to create a perfectly bundled package to protect their family, assets and future income.

By serving my community I was honored with the Bronze Tablet, Silver Scroll, and the Crystal of Excellence. I also was recognized and received the National Sales Achievement Award.

I am on the La Porte Chamber of Commerce Education Committee and a member of Rotary serving the community of La Porte, and a member of La Porte Liberty Bible Church.

I have lived in La Porte County my entire life. I started to work for Marv in 2006, taking a hiatus in 2013 to take care my young children at home. As of August 2019, I am back part-time. My hobbies include keeping saltwater reef aquariums, coaching soccer and I am a true crime junkie! I am currently licensed in #Autoinsurance, #Homeinsurance, #Rentersinsurance , #Businessinsurance, #Lifeinsurance and #Healthinsurance. I enjoy helping people understand their policies and find ways to save them money. In addition, I love showing my friends how they can properly protect their loved ones through the use of life insurance.

Hi. My name is Kat. A little about myself, I was born and raised in Indianapolis and moved to La Porte 5 years ago with my family. I started to work for Marv in 2021. I am a family oriented person, with 5 kids and 2 grands that keep me busy. I love to read in my spare time. Learning a new career path has been a blessing that I didn't know I needed at the time. I am grateful to be able to help people in my community protect what is most important to them. #Community #LifeInsurance #HomeownersInsurance #AutoInsurance #Insurance #FamilyPlanning
