I have been in the insurance business for well over 35 years in a variety of positions; underwriting, servicing, and marketing.  My favorite is doing what I am doing now – working with experienced, as well as new, producers, helping them write business.  I love when I can pass on my knowledge and the fact that I learn new things about the business every day.  Keeping up to date on insurance trends and emerging lines of business helps all of us! When I have free time I spend it in the gardens.  My husband John and I have a very large organic vegetable garden in Northern Minnesota that keeps us very busy, as well as several perennial beds and a large variety of shrubs and trees there and in Columbia Heights. As I enjoy cooking, we manage to use the veggies we don’t give away or freeze.  We have 9 grandchildren between us and like to spend time with them at our cabin “Up North”. My mother is from the Caribbean; we also have relatives there and try to visit every couple years. One more passion I have is reading – love to have a good murder mystery or adventure to keep me up at night, and reviewing my horticulture library.  I usually have 2-3 books going at one time.  Would be remiss not to mention sports – going to the games in town is always great – Go Wild, Twins, and Vikings!
