After graduating from the University of California, Davis in 1975, I joined State Farm as an agent in Santa Clara, California in 1976. I wanted to work in a field where I could make a positive impact and being in the insurance industry allowed me to do just that. Choosing to work with State Farm, a leader in the industry, seemed like the perfect fit.

Since 1982, I have had the privilege of serving as a State Farm Insurance Agent in Siskiyou County, with an office located in Mount Shasta, CA. I made the decision to raise my sons in a small town rather than the bustling bay area, and it turned out to be a great move for my family.

Living in Mount Shasta has given me the opportunity to immerse myself in the local culture and politics. I have served four complete 4-year terms on the City Council, with the honor of being elected Mayor four times. Additionally, I have filled in for retiring council members on two occasions. I have also been a dedicated Boy Scout Leader, earning the prestigious Silver Beaver Award. My community involvement extends to serving on the Chamber of Commerce Board and serving as its President. Currently, I am an active member of the Mount Shasta Rotary Club and the local Elks Lodge.

Throughout my career as an agent, I have discovered that making a difference in people's lives is of utmost importance to me. Recognizing the significance of life insurance in every policyholder's coverage, I pursued further education and obtained professional designations including CLU, ChFC, and CASL. This has allowed me to provide my policyholders with valuable financial information and guidance. Today, a significant portion of my time is dedicated to retirement conversations and coaching.

My team consists of licensed professionals who are capable of handling a wide range of insurance and financial needs. Whether you require home insurance, auto insurance, life insurance, business insurance, or financial products, we are here to assist you. Our focus is always on managing your risks and meeting your specific needs. Feel free to call us or send us a message below – we are excited to get to know you.

Nancy grew up in San Mateo in the Bay Area. She graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Child Development major and then from San Jose State University with an elementary teaching credential. Nancy met Russ at UC Davis and they were married in 1975. They moved to Mount Shasta, CA in 1982. It is a wonderful very small town with 4 seasons and lots of snow. Russ and Nancy raised two sons in Mount Shasta. They now have two young granddaughters they love to visit several times a year.  

Nancy has worked with Russ since 1985, 35 years, in all facets of the business. She is licensed in Auto, Health, Life and Casualty. Nancy has gradually migrated away from service to behind the scenes human resources needs. She also manages our office space and the building we are in.  

In her time away from work her interests are RV travel in the western states, baseball, gardening and shopping.
