“My philosophy is to live a balanced life with attention to my family, business and health, while serving the community and church.  I am a “people person” and enjoy personal interaction with my family, friends, clients and others in the community.”

Scott Insurance & Financial Services works with families and small business owners to identify and cover insurance exposures, develop insurance and financial solutions for personal and financial goals.

“I fiercely guard my status as an independent insurance agent.  There are no production quotas or minimums with any company.  I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” or cookie cutter business model.  If it compromises my independence, I don’t do business with a company.”
