I joined the insurance business in June of 2022, while I am new to insurance I have a strong background in agriculture. My brother and I are the third generation in our family to own a commercial hog operation, while also being raised on a grain farm south of Marshall. In 2016 I graduated from SIUc with a degree in Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences. I worked in agronomy retail from 2013-2018 and was a swine livestock supervisor from 2018-2022.

 

I have a wonderful husband and tornado of a toddler who keeps us on our toes and laughing constantly.

I have had my property/casualty license since 2006 and have since acquired my life/health license. I grew up on a farm south of Casey, IL near Hazel Dell, and attended Casey-Westfield High School. I then went on to attend Lakeland College and the University of Illinois and earned a degree in Agribusiness, Farm, and Financial Management. In 1999 I started my banking career as an agricultural lender, and added the sales of crop insurance in 2006. In 2015 I joined Shore-Murphy & Associates to focus strictly on insurance which I truly enjoy.

 

I have been married to Crystal since 2000, and have three children-Quaid, Adrie, and Grady.
