I grew up in West Limestone, AL, and now reside in Athens, AL. I graduated in 2000 from West Limestone High School. While attending school, I also took a Culinary Arts class for 3 years. After graduating, I attended Calhoun Community College where I earned my Cosmetology Certi cate after passing my core requirements. I first familiarized myself with mortgage and auto insurance during the ve plus years I worked in the collections department of a local bank. While the majority of my business-oriented focus has always been toward providing exceptional customer service, I have recently found that passion to coincide directly with the insurance world. As of now, I primarily assist in managing our personal lines of insurance, notify our producers when our insured’s premium payments are due for all lines of insurance and strive to assist others in any way that I can. I love that Kilgro & Associates have limitless options when it comes to placing someone with great insurance coverage at an even better premium. I love knowing that I, however small, have a hand in keeping families from experiencing the struggles that mine did. The older I get, the more I appreciate soaking up the spontaneity of life. I’m talking…driving to the beach on a Friday night to catch the beautiful sunrise Saturday morning…cutting out on a Saturday morning to Memphis, TN for some amazing BBQ…or even something as simple as cruising to Little Sugar Creek by Mt Zion church where there is no cell phone service & the perfect place for my sons to wade in the water. There is something about those moments that make time stand still while putting life back in perspective. I love to sing! When I was 12, I was on a show called Nashville Starseek. Being on the show got me a front-page spread in the Lifestyles section of the News Courier newspaper too. When I’m not working, my sons, husband, and I either take “mini” trips to somewhere new, visit landmarks in our state, or stay home, grill out and watch a family movie. My oldest son, Chris, has high-functioning Asperger’s Autism. Helping him has taught me unparalleled patience. It has also kindled a love for all children in my heart. If volunteer for the Special Needs Rodeo in Morgan County when I can and it is always a huge blessing! Seeing a child’s eyes light up with excitement and knowing that you helped create that moment is a priceless gift. Any wonderful cause that involves bettering the lives of children will forever have my undivided attention.
