Account Manager

I started with Jason’s agency in 2005 and I truly work hard to help people understand their options for insurance and financial services. Because of my knowledge in Auto, Home, Life, and Health insurance, I thoroughly enjoy holding in-depth account reviews with our customers. Many years of experience will ensure your needs are met and that you laugh along the way. I take time to talk with everyone about the importance of Life insurance to protect those we value most. My greatest love is spending time with my accomplished daughter, Allison, whom I raised in Madras and is a recent graduate of The University of Puget Sound. I also enjoy traveling and reading great books.

Customer Service Representative

I have been part of Jason Hertel's State Farm Agency since 2018 and enjoy working with this great group of people. I can do many things for this team, but my primary role is signing up new customers, and customer service. I am licensed to help with Auto Insurance, Home and Renters Insurance, Business Insurance, as well as Life and Health Insurance. I really enjoy helping people with all of their insurance needs. Insurance can be a complex industry - I can provide great value to our customers by taking whatever time is needed to help them understand what they are buying or already paying for. When I am not helping customers with insurance needs, I enjoy barbecueing, working in the yard, and spending time with family. I would enjoy the opportunity to help protect what’s most important to you!
