I was born in Whittier, California and raised in Orange County. I attended Oregon State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Finance. I obtained my MBA from the University of Southern California. Some weekends, you can find me at our beach cottage in Newport Beach. While there, I enjoy strolling along the boardwalk and around Lido Island. I am an avid collector and repairer of antique clocks that are over 100 years old. I became a State Farm agent to be a business owner and local resource for insurance in the Altadena/Pasadena area. I am passionate about helping local residents and businesses with their Auto insurance, Life insurance, Hospital Insurance and Professional Liability insurance needs. In addition, we offer Pet Insurance and Retirement services. My bilingual Spanish team can answer your questions on all your insurance needs. As a small business owner, we can talk about how I can help your small business. My team and I help our neighbors by frequenting local restaurants and coffee shops and by sponsor a youth baseball team with the Altadena Little League. I am also a member of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce. In Altadena, we are proud to be part of a lively community with a diverse mix of residents and local businesses for the last 20 years. You can reach us 24/7 by phone, text or online through this site.
