How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? I decided to become a State Farm agent because I saw an opportunity to not only become a business owner, but make an invaluable contribution to the community. I consider myself a risk manager, as well as an agent. I want to look at what you consider valuable, and show you the most effective way to protect it. It is my responsibility to make sure that you have adequately planned for your future and that of your family. We want to reach as many citizens as possible, which is why we are a Spanish-speaking agency.

Previous business experience: I was a territory sales manager with the Pepsi Bottling Group and a pharmaceutical sales specialist with AstraZeneca.
