Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to come in and meet our team of insurance professionals.

My family has been proudly representing Co-operators for over 40 years. I have had the good fortune to work with Co-operators in three western provinces. Following in my father’s footsteps as an Advisor/Owner gives me the opportunity to live my passion of helping people, one family at a time!

I am proud to work with my team, who provide outstanding client service and take a personal interest in your well-being. Each team member is committed to giving back to our community and we have supported a number of organizations, such as Abbotsford Hospice Society, Crystal Gala Foundation, Abbotsford Community Foundation, and BC Agriculture in the Classroom, to name a few.

Having experienced a house fire, I understand the value of having the right coverage in place. Let our team of professional insurance specialists build personalized solutions to provide financial protection for what is important to you. Whether your goal is to protect your family’s future, business, farm, home or vehicle, you can count on us for the coverage you need.

I've worked in the insurance industry for almost five years now, and look forward to growing and learning as much as possible. I mostly work with our Farm insurance clients, but also help out with Home and Auto insurance. I have just received my level two licence and am continuing my education to work toward my Certified Insurance Professional designation. I love working with the community and showing them how to properly protect themselves. Outside of the workplace, I am a busy mom with a family of seven. We enjoy staying active and spending time together.

I am brand new to the industry, but a third-generation agent for Co-operators. I am currently in university pursuing finance administration. I am happy to be in a position that allows me to help others with their Home and Farm insurance.

In my downtime, I like to stay active, and also enjoy catching up with the sports world and playing my video games.

I've enjoyed working in almost all lines of insurance since I joined the industry in 2005. I'm now happy to be working with people to insure their financial security with Life insurance, Investments and Farm insurance. When not working, I stay active by water and snow skiing, as well as being a member of a local dance company that supports community awareness.
