How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it? I started my agency career with State Farm in 2001 as a qualified team member in an agent’s office in Martinsburg, W.Va. After building the skills and credentials needed, I took a promotion with the company and moved into a leadership position as an agency specialist in eastern North Carolina. While in North Carolina, I helped agents train and market their agencies to continue building the strong State Farm reputation. In early 2012, I had the opportunity to return to the Tri-State area to start the process of opening my own State Farm agency in Hagerstown. As I was helping other agents, I realized how rewarding it was going to be for me to have control over my future by putting to work the experience I gained over my 12 years with the company. As I built my career as an agent with State Farm, I also invested some time in the real estate market and sold real estate for seven years with Long & Foster. I’ve positioned myself as a multilined agent in the Washington county area to help my family, friends and clients.
