Contributing more to your 401(k) may help you save on taxes. Consider me your guide.

Do boats need year-round coverage? You bet. Even while your boat is in storage, there may still be a risk of fire, theft, vandalism, and flooding. Shoot me an email to make sure you have the coverage you need.

Golf season’s almost in full swing, and just like with insurance, it’s all about preparation. Take a break from all those practice swings in the living room and take inventory of any new items you need covered. When you’re done, send me a message.

Farmers® has seen paint-can chaos before, and we covered it. Give me a call so you can make sure you're covered in case your dance moves (literally) rock the house.

We hope all of our customers have a wonderful Christmas! We will be closing December 25-26th for the holiday! Have fun spending time with family and friends.


It's the holidays and we are in the giving spirit! Our Teacher Feature for December is Coach Hoffman! She's the Social Studies teacher and volleyball coach at Advance High School. She graduated from SEMO and has a husband David and daughter Lexi. Her hobbies are playing the piano and reading as well as coaching, obviously! Her goal for the school year is to do a Decades Festival which she has scheduled for January. Good Luck in all you do and Congratulations!

Who likes spending weekends off the road and off-roading? I love it. Who has a golf cart, dirt bike, dune buggy or ATV? I would love to discuss insurance options so you get the coverage you want. Farmers offers specialized coverage for off-road vehicles, so roll on by so you can find one that’s right for you.

If you’re not thinking about life insurance to help replace income, address the gaps in retirement, or protect your family’s ability to make mortgage payments if something happens to you, today may be a good time to start.

If you own a business, you know the unexpected can happen on the job. That's why it's important to be prepared to address injuries that may happen to your employees on the job. Let's talk about your workers' compensation coverage options today.

*****October Teacher Feature*****

Congratulations to this month's Teacher Feature, Mrs. Raines! She's the Fourth Grade Teacher at Advance Elementary. It was an absolute pleasuring visiting with Mrs. Raines. She provides such a wonderful learning enviornment in her class room. Good luck the rest of this school year and keep up the good work!

80% of Americans surveyed overestimated the cost of term life insurance, especially Gen Xers and Millennials. If cost is something that you’ve been worried about, shoot me an email. I’d be happy to lay options out for you so you can select the coverage that best fits your needs and budget.

55% of small businesses get hacked. As a small business owner myself, I just want to remind you to stay on top of your security. And yes, that includes changing your password to something that's not your pet's name. Call me to explore some policies for even more protection.

*****September Teacher Feature*****
Congrats to our 1st Teacher Feature of the school year, Ms. McCabe! She's the 2nd Grade Teacher at Advance Elementary. She graduated SEMO with a Bachelors Degree in Education last December and this is her first year teaching! She enjoys reading, traveling, bowling and watching hockey. Her goals for this school year are to have hands-on learning and to get the students to WANT to come to school and enjoy learning something new! She wants every child to go home at the end of the day thinking, "Ms. McCabe thinks I'm succesful, so I am." Sounds like an exciting school year ahead for you Ms. McCabe!

Life insurance for your kids is a policy that grows with them. Purchasing a permanent juvenile policy now ensures that they have coverage, even if their health changes later on, and can even be used to help pay for school or a home. Give me a call so you can figure out what's right for your family.

More than half of middle-market consumers between the ages of 25 and 64 don't have life insurance which may leave their loved ones financially vulnerable if the unexpected happens. Want to learn how to help protect your family’s financial future? Just give me a call.

Farmers has seen just about everything, even these dogs that flooded a home while their owners were away. To make sure you’re prepared for the unexpected, give me a call. I’d be happy to go over your options with you.

People hear "Farmers" and think we only offer insurance, but Farmers Financial Solutions also offer Mutual Funds, Variable Annuities, 529 College Savings Plans and more. Good news: I love talking about all of it. Don't just protect your future. Invest in it. Call me and let's chat.

We all know a teacher who has made a great impact on our life. At Farmers, we’re returning our teachers’ generosity throughout August by collecting school supplies that teachers need. Come by my office to donate supplies today and show your appreciation for our educators! #ThankATeacher

Join Farmers in supporting America’s teachers by donating school supplies at my office throughout August. Together, we can show our teachers some gratitude!

Congratulations to our agency's teacher feature this month, Mrs. Wiseman! She teaches 1st Grade at Advance Elementary. She received her degree from Southeast Missouri State University in Elementary Education. Her goal for this school year is to instill the love of reading in her students. She's always looking for fun ways to teach phonics and reading so that students will look forward to the lessons and have a desire to read. Keep up the wonderful job Mrs. Wiseman and enjoy the rest of the school year!

This month's Teacher Feature is Lauryn Collins! Mrs. Collins teaches 6th grade at Advance Elementary. She is from Oak Ridge and married to Tyler, with their first child due in August! Her hobbies are crafting and her goal for the rest of the year is to enjoy the last few months with her students before they move on to Junior High. Congratulations Lauryn and we hope you have a wonderful school year!

As a Farmers agent, I have seen a lot, so I can discuss coverage options so you can select the coverage that fits your business. But as a small business owner myself, I know that a growing business has changing needs. Give me a call, and we can discuss a plan that works for you.

Pro tip: It’s hard enough to make it out of the mall alive during this chaotic shopping season, let alone remember where you parked. Make a habit of dropping a pin or taking a picture while walking away, so you can easily recognize where your car is. You don’t want to be wandering around with all your shiny new purchases. And if you do have shiny new purchases, give me a call so we can talk about coverage options.

Congratulations to Feburary's Teacher Feature, Angie Long-Cato! Angie has lived in the area her whole life and lives on her family's century old farm. She's earned her Bachelors, Masters and Specialist Degree from Southeast Missouri State University. Angie's married to Brian Cato and has two sons, Cade and Baylor, that both attend Advance High School. A few of her hobbies are running, traveling and watching her boys play sports. Her goal for this school year is to incorporate more technology into her lessons. Congrats on being our Teacher Feature this month, hope you enjoy your basket of gifts and keep up the good work!

Is it just me, or is there nothing more romantic than starting off a honeymoon with a candlelit talk about life insurance? All right, probably a stretch. But still, it’s a great idea to start your life together by planning your future together.

100 percent of people prefer a well-cooked steak to a well-cooked home. That is my own research. Let’s connect and review your homeowners policy, so you can be sure you’re covered even when the unexpected happens.

Cold and flu season is upon us, so here’s a tip to help you stay sharp: If you start to feel a headache coming on, snack on some almonds. It may sound nuts (See what I did there?), but they are loaded with salicin, an agent in common over-the-counter painkillers, so a handful could help soothe the pain in a pinch and can even help you live longer. Don’t believe me? Check it out:

A lot can change in one year. New kids, new car, new pet mongoose, or even a new house. If any of these sound familiar, we should sit down for a free Farmers Friendly Review. We can go over any changes in your life and you can adjust your policies accordingly. Let's chat.

Congrats to Robin Minton on being our Teacher Feature for January! Robin lives in Advance and has a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and Language Arts. She's married to Myron and has a daughter, Melissa Hake. Some of her hobbies are keeping up with her dogs, crafting, and spending time with her two grandchildren. Her goals for this school year are to make learning fun and spark some interest in various skills including technology and to be a better teacher, making this year the best teaching experience yet! Good luck this year Robin, you're doing great!
