On Life in Hood River:
“I enjoy being closer to my family. I love the longer, warmer growing season, and being so close to river and mountain.”
On Loving Her Work:
“I really enjoy when I can review a customer’s insurance needs and find a way to provide them with a substantial increase to their coverage protection without a significant increase to their premium amount.
I also love the fact that Bisnett Insurance can broker with so many different insurance carriers so I have the opportunity to obtain the right coverage for my customers’ needs. I am really happy to be connected with a group of amazing insurance agents in multiple locations available to service multiple states. In a past position, I was limited on insurance products, and had to send my customers down the road to another agency to take care of their needs. Now, I no longer have to do that.”

On Life in Hood River: “I love getting back next to the Columbia Gorge area trail systems – Herman Creek, Mt. Defiance, Green Point – where I’ve done so much backpacking and hiking. I also love lunchtime runs along the riverfront, or the challenge of running up to the Hatfield Trailhead. That and the numerous weekend events, activities and wine tasting the area offers.”
On Loving His Work: “I love doing the policy and coverage comparisons, and answering questions about how an insurance policy would respond in a given situation. Low prices are great, but only when they include the valuable coverage you want and they come from a company that cares about their claim practices.”
