I joined the State Farm family as a commercial lines underwriter in 1993, and opened my agency in 1999. I’m a people person in every sense, and I’m proud to be here serving the residents of Fort Mill, SC and the surrounding areas—including Tega Cay, Lake Wylie, Pineville, South Charlotte, Indian Land, Rock Hill, Clover, Newport and York County. We’re licensed in both South and North Carolina, and we’re able to serve speakers of English as well as Indian languages. My agency handles homeowners and renters insurance, auto insurance, life insurance, business insurance and more—including financial services.

When I’m serving my customers, I make sure I’m able to understand exactly where they’re coming from. Knowing everything I can about a person’s family, occupation, what they like to do when not working and their financial situation allows me to pinpoint where our services can do that person the most good. And that’s why we’re here, after all! We provide personal attention, we take a long-term approach to insurance and financial services, and we treat everyone as if they were members of our own families. In a way, they are—we’ve been here in Fort Mill for a very long time, and we have a deep love of this community and the people who live and work here. I’ve known some of our customers for over 25 years—and if they stay with us for that long, we feel relevant and important part of their lives.

My family came to the United States when I was very young. I’ve lived in New York City, I’ave worked in Jacksonville, Florida, and I’m a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a bachelor’s degree in finance and risk management. I’m married, and I have two teenage daughters, one is in college and other one in high school. We love spending time together as a family—hiking, practicing yoga, being a dance parent, playing strategy games and playing cards. I also like to help out with activities and fundraisers at their schools, and sometimes the girls join me for volunteer work at the local food pantry. It’s important to find ways to give back, and I love having them with me when I’m serving the community.

My team and I are blessed with all the wonderful long-term friendships we’ve developed with our customers over the years—but there’s always room for one more! We’re here for you, and we’re always ready to help with your home, renters, auto, life, or business insurance and more. Please call for a review of your current plan add experience the difference.
