Having grown up “ IN” the insurance business I never thought I’d end up working "IN” the insurance business but that is exactly what happened. Entering the family insurance and real estate business with my Dad in 1981 was an opportunity I am so grateful for.
I began my career working with home and auto insurance. Today, I concentrate on public entity and other commercial business but I still love working with our home, farm and auto insured’s.
Along with Roger Hower, my husband, we operate the insurance and real estate agencies. I spend most of my time in insurance and as the managing broker doing risk management for the real estate.
We believe that it’s important to serve our community and give back. I especially like serving on groups that help promote our downtown.
Over the years I have gotten involved in serving the insurance industry through the Kansas Association of Insurance Agents (KAIA) serving on the education and government affairs committees. I am a past president of the KAIA and now serve as the Kansas National Director for KAIA to our national board of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA)
Another organization associated with the IIABA is InVEST. InVEST is a 501(c)(3)not-for profit organization dedicated to improving insurance literacy in students and attracting new talent to the industry. I currently serve on the national InVEST board of Directors as Chairperson.
Running with friends, biking and traveling with my husband are favorite hobbies of mine. All three lead to two more of my most favorite things. Finding unique foods and “in search” always of the very best glass of dry red wine to taste.
