I am a Gulf Breeze native and a graduate of UWF. My family and I traveled throughout Central America before falling in love with Mexico where we lived for over 10 years. I recently returned home with my two fantastic kids and our adopted Mexican dog. I love to travel, sail and volunteer. I am licensed in Florida and Alabama and speak Spanish. While I focus on homeowners insurance, I am also happy to assist you with your auto, commercial and health insurance needs.

I was born and raised in Aurora, CO. I traded my snow-boots for some sandals, and I could not have made a better choice. Growing up, I watched my parents grow their small business in the community and that is what made me realize I want to do the same. You can find me reading a good book or painting for hours on end. I look forward to working with you!

I graduated from Florida State University with a double major in Finance and Management and have had a passion for helping others and putting smiles on faces since I can remember. I love spending my free time traveling, baking, rollerblading and cuddling my cats. I am expecting my first child this year, and am so excited for what the future holds while being on the John Shaffer customer care team!
