My start in insurance began in 1995, working part time for an independent local agency.

I began with State Farm, with this office in 2003. Obtaining my licenses in Property/Casualty and Life/Health. During my almost 20 years, I have worked with great State Farm agents. An opportunity opened and I was able to return home.

I’m a quilter, sewer, and crafter when away from the office. I have two amazing sons & 2 bonus daughters that I am super proud of! A great partner and two wonderful doxies complete our family.

I truly believe in “Like a Good Neighbor” and look forward to assisting you in our local communities.

 I was raised in Fresno, California. My Dad was a personal-lines insurance underwriter and agent for many years.  He taught me the tools of the trade such as a good work ethic and the value of exceptional customer service.  I guess you can say insurance is in in my blood.  I started my career in the insurance industry over 35 years ago.  My primary focus has been customer service, but I did spend a few years as a health insurance underwriter.

My husband and I moved to Southwest Michigan in 2008 to be a helping hand with his aging parents.  Big change for me!  I do love the 4 seasons minus winter. I really enjoy the close-knit community of a small town.  Some people say that I have a green thumb I do love spending time in my flower and vegetable garden.

I joined the Jilek State Farm Insurance Agency in February 2021.  I was welcomed into the family; a great team to be a part of.  I value my years of experience in the industry and will make sure our customers receive quality service.~

I’ve been on the insurance train since 1969, most of it in the claims discipline.  I started in Chicago with several smaller companies; then transferred to a larger, Merrillville, Indiana company.  The next stop was professionally bartending for one year and then I stopped at State Farm Claims in Michigan City, Indiana as a superintendent secretary.  Stayed at the State Farm station for 18 years and then traveled onto AAA of Michigan for 5 years.  Continuing on, I visited Indiana Insurance and finally ended up at Nationwide for 15 years.   Retirement looked pretty good so I thought that would be the last stop but… way…..since I don’t paint, wallpaper or remodel, I asked Mr. Jilek if he needed help and he kindly took me on in 2014 and it was the greatest move ever!  I am an old person having seen a real live Beatle concert in 1965; love gardening, reading, raising chickens and making my family crazy.  This is the greatest office ever and the greatest team anyone can find.  Check us out and you won’t be disappointed. ~
