At this time, online auto quoting is not available, and we are unable to write fire business in California. Please call, text, or visit us for an auto quote today. Our team is ready now to put together a Personal Price Plan for you.

We are now licensed to write coverage in Nevada & Oregon!!! We look forward to helping you!

My Redwood City physical office is now open again for face-to-face appointments. Call, text or email to set up a time to talk. We are here to assist with your Personal Price Plan and would love to be of service.

We offer Auto Insurance, Home Insurance (OR & NV only), Renters Insurance (OR and NV Only) & Life Insurance. We are proud to serve Redwood City, San Carlos, Palo Alto, Belmont, Menlo Park & Foster City. I live, work and play in the area and I'm grateful for such an amazing community! I am now able to write coverage in the state of Oregon & Nevada as well, whether you are in Portland, Bend, Oswego, Medford, Reno, Las Vegas or Elko.

I have over 34 Years State Farm experience and I'm an Active Redwood City Rotarian (2015-16 President), a San Carlos Education Foundation (SCEF) Volunteer and Sequoia High School Education Foundation Board Member (2016 - present). I was recently inducted into the Redwood City Elks Lodge. I attended the University of California at Davis, where I earned a B.A. in Economics. Insurance is a natural offshoot of my study of Economics.

I'm passionate about being a Lucile Packard Children's Hospital supporter having raised over $80,000 for the hospital over the last decade. I sponsor & serve as a Regional Referee for the San Carlos AYSO. I'm also active with the Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary & currently serve as the President of the Friend's Affiliate for Children's Health. I am a member of NAIFA and I've obtained my Chartered Life Underwriter, Chartered Financial Consultant and Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter Designations.
