“I am very excited to join Travis Oliver at Kansas Insurance. Our fine products and strong companies will allow us to make sure that our clients are able to protect their assets within their budget. I feel that it is a great privilege, every time I sit down with a client and begin our conversation. With my experience, many times, I am able to make recommendations that the client does not recognize as a threat to the stability of their family. Often, eliminating that threat is relatively inexpensive!”
