I started my career as a support staff in a Chandler insurance office back in 1985. The owners at the time, helped me to start my own agency in 1987. Back then I did not realize what a gift that was.
I have been an Arizona resident since 1973, and love all that Arizona has to offer. In my spare time I enjoy, hiking locally or spending time in the White Mountains. I love technology and learning new things. Currently I am learning to quilt.
Giving back to the community is part of our office culture. I love working with high schools teaching young drivers about the dangers of texting while driving. I also lead a group of agents and their offices to support Feed My Starving Children with a food packing event each November.
Helping people is the main reason I started my agency in 1987. My main focus is to help families learn to manage their everyday risks. Whether you are looking for home, auto or life insurance information or preparing for your retirement, we are here to help.
My insurance experience started in the township mutual business in Minnesota. I have been a customer of Jacque’s since 1989 and now I am working for her. Some things just come full circle. Insurance is an ever changing business and I learn something new or am faced with a different twist nearly every day. That is the part that keeps me interested and excited to help people with those changes.
My husband and I enjoy exploring Arizona on quads and always look forward to getting dusty in the great outdoors. Our two daughters are in Minnesota and we are continually counting the days until our next visit.
Our community is important to me. Meeting my neighbors and supporting their growth and safety makes me feel good. I also enjoy helping put together team events that support our office and community.
I am the newest member of the Riggs team, and so far I am loving it! Before coming over to insurance, I was in the mortgage industry. It has been an exciting crossover. I hope to be able to keep in touch with my previous mortgage friends and work together to help current and potential customers.
I was born in Stevensville, MI and moved to AZ in 7th grade. Even though I have been in AZ for most of my life, I am still a Cubbies fan! When I am not working, you can find me with my husband on the softball field with our youngest daughter or watching our older daughter performing in a play. It’s great having 2 kiddos with opposite interests!
When I have free time, I love to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and schools. We also love to help out at Feed My Starving Children.
I have been helping people with their insurance needs for a long while. For 20 years I had my own agency in Montana. In 2005 my wife Ruth and I decided to retire in Arizona. Once here, I missed the customer interaction and have worked with the Riggs Agency since.
There are lots of things I enjoy doing outside of work. My wife and I have fun discovering new restaurants. I love hiking and canyoneering and belong to a couple of clubs that introduce me to different areas of our state. When I slow down I enjoy reading and movies.
Our team volunteers regularly. Our last adventure was with Feed My Starving Children.
I came to insurance as a second generation insurance agent. My father had an agency that provided for our family for many years. Once he retired, I decided I wanted an agency of my own. I grew my agency for 20 years and when I decided to slow down, I merged my agency with Jacque’s. Even though I work fewer hours I can still keep in contact with my customers while creating new relationships. My passion is working with small businesses and providing them with valuable insurance advice.
I am originally from Minnesota, but moved to Arizona at a young age. My wife and I live in Tempe with our dog, Jackson. On my days off I enjoy traveling either to the beach or to the mountains of Arizona, catching a movie, or spending time with my grandson.
I have been involved with my community for many years. I have volunteered with Kiwanis, Boys and Girls Club, Optimist Club, as well as YMCA of Mesa and Tempe. My most recent involvement has been with our local High School teen safe driving program.
I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and grew up a huge baseball fan and still root for the Cardinals…becoming a big Diamondbacks fan!
This is a second career for me with over 11 years experience in the financial services arena. I Obtained my series 6 and 63 licenses in 2007 and am licensed in AZ, MO & CA. I have a passion for educating clients on how to think about their financial world, protect and grow their nest egg with a special focus on retirement income planning.
My husband and are new motor home owners and we love road trips with our beloved dog. We enjoy playing golf or catching a baseball game in places we visit. We meet really interesting people and enjoy precious family/friend time creating new memories.
When it comes to volunteering, I am for anything that helps children.
