I’ve been a State Farm agent for over 21 years in Metairie, LA. I personally witnessed the crucial importance of having protection when natural disaster strikes. Decades of experience involving the unique risks for families and businesses in Greater New Orleans and all over Louisiana allows me to help you remain prepared for the unexpected.

My entire career revolved around helping protect my neighbors from everyday risks and avoiding financial devastation. I started in the State Farm claims department in Metairie. I also worked in Lafayette, until I opened my State Farm Agency in the Old Metairie neighborhood in 2001. Today, our team has a combined +150 years of experience helping our neighbors secure the right insurance.

In true New Orleans spirit, my team and I take the time to get to know you and your family. We sit down and listen to your needs face to face to ensure you receive a clear overview of your insurance options. As your local point of contact to the country’s preferred insurance provider, we help you select the ideal policies for your unique situation. My team and I help you become properly protected without paying for unnecessary coverage.

From our office on Metairie Road, we’ll help you navigate your options in a clear and straightforward language (English/Spanish). We serve residents and local business in all of Louisiana, Greater New Orleans, Metairie, Kenner, Mandeville, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette. We can now help customers in Mississippi, Texas, and Arkansas!

Insurance products we offer:

· Auto

· Homeowner’s

· Condo

Our goal is to help you make sure your life goes right, for the right price. Are you interested in coverage by the top insurance provider in the country? Then we would love the opportunity to give you a complimentary coverage review and quote on your insurance policies. Visit our office across from Ruby Slipper & Rock N Sake, between Causeway & Labarre Road on Metairie Road, or call us for an honest policy review.

Fun facts about me:

• Hip Hop Fridays at our office are my favorite time of the week. You must experience it to understand!

• I am fascinated by antiques. So I understand why how the “things” we have in our homes mean much more to us than just objects. They all have a story.

• I moved into the insurance business because I didn’t understand the lingo agents used. Instead, I wanted to offer customers clear conversations and simple examples.
