I was born in Fairfax, VA and moved when I was six years old to Western Pa with my parents to be closer to their families. My father was a bricklayer and I have spent my entire life exposed to all areas of the construction industry. My professional career began working in an accounting department of a local contractor for 6 years, before moving to the insurance industry in 1993 with the MetLife Pittsburgh Small Business Center, where I worked in group insurance for the next 10 years. I started working at Beneigh Insurance Group in the summer of 2017, where I soon found that my past experiences as an underwriter, escalated customer service representative and even as a quality manager transitioned well into my new role as a licensed agent and customer service representative for commercial and personal lines. Every day, I truly look forward to providing positive support to our agency’s growing book of commercial business. Assisting business owners with their insurance needs and finding resolution to any service issues they may experience is my daily commitment both professionally and personally.

In 1999 I “wisely” married Alan Sr., creating an immediate blended family that includes four wonderful adult children, Daniel, Kayla, Alan Jr. and Kristy. We are also blessed with four precious grandchildren, Megan, Amelia, Wyatt and Kayden. My greatest joy is spending time with my family. Playing games with my grandkids is most near and dear to my heart. If I am not with family, I spend my time working on home projects or camping and traveling with my husband, walking my dog, Scarlett, reading, writing, crafting, gardening, volunteering and celebrating life as often as possible with friends.
