For me, State Farm means family. I grew up watching my father serve his customers for 37 years, and that’s why I believe so strongly in the good neighbor mission. After working in my father's agency starting in 1996, I’m proud to continue his tradition of service as the second generation State Farm agent to serve Oakland, CA! We’re truly a hometown agency, established in 2001, and we are here to help people from around the Bay Area and throughout California with plans that help them protect what matters.

I believe in practicing insurance with integrity and empathy. That means helping people understand their needs and working together to find the right plan for their lives. This isn’t about pushing policies to me—I love getting to know my customers and learning their stories. My dedicated, professional team is always available to answer questions and offer support, and you’ll always find a warm welcome at our office. We’ve been recognized by State Farm for our commitment to service and performance multiple times over the last 23 years.

I was born in Oakland so I’m passionate about supporting this wonderful community. I am active with my children's school and I volunteer with food drives and other important causes. Outside the office, you’ll find me spending time with my husband and our two kids, dreaming about our next travel adventure!

My office is here to help with all your insurance and financial service needs, including auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance and more. Ready to work together? Give me a call for a free quote!
