I am proud to represent De Smet Farm Mutual Insurance products to the Mitchell and surrounding communities. Having grown up on a farm south of Carpenter and graduating from Iroquois High School, De Smet Farm Mutuals home office in De Smet was like having them as a next door neighbor. It is a company that I have known about my entire life. My cousin, Del, worked for De Smet Farm Mutuals home office for many years and now I am excited to carry on my familys name as one of their agents.
One of the things that makes De Smet Farm Mutual stand out is their philosophy Serving South Dakota from South Dakota. Decisions are made locally so when your policy is submitted, reviewed and issued, a South Dakotan made the decisions. When your insurance rates are set, they are set by South Dakotans. When you have a claim, South Dakotans are there to help get you back to being whole.
I have lived in Mitchell since 1979, coming here to attend Dakota Wesleyan University. I graduated as president of my senior class with a degree in Business Administration. Most of my career has been in banking management or insurance sales and service and have been identified as an agent that provides customers with an outstanding customer experience.
In the Mitchell community, I have served or am currently serving on the Wesley Acres Foundation Board and their Board of Trustees. I have taught Sunday school for junior high age students for many years at the First United Methodist Church and have served as the Chairman of our Finance Committee, Vice Chairman of the Staff Parrish Committee, Lay Leader and on their Board of Trustees, as well as other volunteer positions within the church. While running my agency in Watertown, I was a board member for both the Kiwanis Club and the local chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
I invite you to stop in to my office at 110 East Second Street and say Hello. I would be happy to meet you and in most cases, show you how De Smet Farm Mutual Insurance can give you the best coverage at the best price with the best service possible. I look forward to meeting you!
