Our employees at CWIA are professional, qualified, friendly, and ready to help you!
My insurance career started back in 1970 with Firemen’s Fund Insurance Company Chicago, IL. In 1972 I met Gordon Cowles who owned a small independent insurance agency. Gordon operated the agency from his home in Wittenberg, WI. I have gone from writing insurance at the kitchen table to purchasing and now operating from two locations in Central Wisconsin. I enjoy fishing the waters of Lake Michigan and the inner coastal waters of Florida. I serve in several charitable functions. A few examples are working at the Iola antique car show making our famous Wisconsin deep fried cheese curds to raise money for the blind. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Society and other charitable causes.
After growing up on, and operating a dairy farm in Marathon County, I started my insurance career in 1987 with Rural Insurance. Since then, the majority of my insurance experience was spent as an agency principal with The Murphy Insurance Group, where I developed many skills and relationships. Today I am part of CWIA, and continue to work with businesses, business owners, as well as everyday insurance consumers, who value having a professional insurance agent to consult with and assist them with their insurance program. I live in the Town of Berlin, and my outside of work interests include working with community service organizations that include the Lions, Elks, and the Wausau Area Builders Association.
I have worked in the insurance industry for 5 years. Most of my background is in the management and accounting areas. I like to think that I help start our day off on a positive, fun note. I have a wonderful husband , six children, 14 grandchildren, one great-granddaughter and our faithful dog Toby. My hobbies are reading as much and I can and hanging out with my grandchildren.
I have been in the insurance industry for over 25 years. I started out in customer service, but soon moved into personal lines as an agent. I pride myself at listening to the customer’s needs and always looking out for them and their best interest. On a personal note, my husband and I have been married 50+ years and have raised seven awesome children. They in turn have given us 21 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. They are the love of our life and our best times revolve around the huge family get together’s that make our life complete.
