Customer Service Advisor
Amanda has been with the agency since 2017. She was named the 2018 Outstanding CSR of the Year for the state of Indiana by the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research.
When she's not taking care of customers, you can find Amanda whipping meals together, shuttling her boys to their next activity, or enjoying a piece of dark chocolate.
Amanda has a lot of energy and it's hard for her to sit still for too long. If raising four boys wasn't enough, she found time to milk cows, run her own mowing business, and serve a two year stint with the TSA on the weekends at the Fort Wayne International Airport.
Once her youngest started pre-school she found a full time opportunity helping a local roofing company by managing the office and scheduling jobs for 3 roofing crews.
She loves working for and working with smaller companies because of the relationships and personal service that come with it.
